Nas NOT Dropped by Label, 'Nigger' Sticks to Schedule

January 26, 2008 (5:08 am) GMT
On Nas being dropped after insisting on naming his album 'Nigger', a rep from Def Jam has laughed it off saying it's 'ridiculous'.

A representative from Def Jam has slammed the rumor that will be kicked out of the label if he insists on having his upcoming album titled 'Nigger'. The rep dismissed the issue saying, "That is absolutely ridiculous and untrue".

With the denial on the false report, the rep also said that Nas' album release will stick to the schedule, which is February. The rapper wanted the album to be dropped in coincidence to Black History month.

Rumors on Nas leaving Def Jam circulated earlier this week when a source claiming to be a rep from Def Jam was quoted as saying "Many retailers have already told us - flat out - that they won't carry (an album with that title)."
