Nas' Controversial Album Pushed Back!
Created a buzz by controversially naming his ninth studio album 'Nigger', Nas would like to make a greater impact of its release. The album won't come in December as planned, but will be dropped in coincidence to Black History Month in February 2008.
Nas also told MTV News that material called 'What It Is' that leaked earlier this month didn't belong to him. "I never rhymed to that beat," he said. Instead, he confirmed that it won't be included in the album and that the official first single will appear in January.
The rapper's camp revealed that he is still working on the tracklisting. Some known collaborators in the album are P. Diddy and his The Hitmen team, Salaam Remi, and Jermaine Dupri.
Nas' decision to name the album 'Nigger' has sparked a debate among the music icons themselves. While Reverend Al Sharpton objected to the use of word, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z and Russell Simmons are pro to the idea.
