Nas Album Title

nas2.jpg
 

Nas told the Daily News that he plans on naming his Def Jam debut album ‘Nigga’.

The hip-hop provocateur tells us he’s planning on calling the CD simply "N-." Except, he’ll be filling in the blank.

"That’s the name right now," he said. Just to make sure we didn’t mishear him, he spelled the racist epithet for us.

"I don’t care about sales," he explained at Wednesday’s MAC Cosmetics party for Sean (Diddy) Combs’ new fragrance, Unforgivable. "Well, tonight I don’t. I never was a big sales dude, so it never really mattered." 

I thought that was pretty dope, but then the article goes on to say that a Def Jam rep spoke to the Little Homey and he said he was just "being facetious".

BUT NO ONE SAID NAS WAS WRONG FOR SIGNING WITH HOV, AFTER DISSING EACH OTHER FOR YEARS ENDING W/HOV FUCKING HIS BITCH. THATS ALOT WORSE. IT MAKES NAS LOOK WEAK, AND HE IS TO MUCH A LEGEND TO HAVE TO WIN THE BATTLE AND LOSE THE WAR W/JAY. CUZ IT LOOKS LIKE JAY FINALLY GOT OVER ON HIM WHETHER OR NOT ITS TRUE. A THE ALBUM TITLE NIGGA. COME ON’ NAS…WHATS WRONG WITH YOU LATELY ARE YOU CRAZY. THATS JUST GON GIVE WHITE PPL A REASON TO WANT TO SAY “NIGGA” I KNOW UR ABOVE THAT. WTF IS UP?

    OH AND CHECK OUT THIS ARTICLE ABOUT MY NIGGAS MOBB DEEP’S “BLOOD MONEY” OUT ON MARCH 21ST. ITS SOUNDS AMAZING…ONE

    FROM BALLERSTATUS.NET:
    We shut down January on a nice note last week and today we open February heavy. I don’t care if it’s the shortest month of the year. Aquarius’ stand up! Let’s get it!

    Nothing major was moving me this week, until Wednesday night that is. Wednesday night, I was one of the members of online press that was invited to G-Unit offices in New York City for an exclusive Mobb Deep Blood Money listening session. Now, honestly speaking, when the M-O-B-B officially signed to G-Unit, I loved the move for its financial prospects. Without a doubt, the Infamous have paid their dues in hip-hop and I thought it was about time that they potentially cash in on their biggest pay day and move the most units of their career.

    That said, on the other hand, I, like many other journalists and fans wondered how much 50 Cent was going to put his stamp on Mobb’s sound. If you grew up in Queens, New York, you KNOW Mobb Deep’s sound and to be honest, possible 50 and G-Unit overkill were definitely concerns of mine heading into this listening session. Not that, that would be a negative, but I wanted to hear Mobb Deep really shine. And shine they did. Mobb Deep’s Blood Money is a damn near classic. Those that read the Blood Money headline story I penned for BallerStatus.net (see “Mobb Deep Not Relying On 50 Cent For Blood Money “), are already ahead of the game. However, for those slackers that didn’t, to sum it all up, 50 let Mobb Deep be Mobb Deep. In return, the M-O-B-B turned in a gem.

    I mean track after track, Prodigy is sounding hungry again and Havoc is destroying the boards. If it wasn’t evident before, it will be now -– Havoc is one of hip-hop’s best producers, period. The album intro to outro plays crazy and I’m saying that without even listening to an additional record that the Mobb did with Mary J. Blige, which is scheduled to be added in time for the March 21st release. Me, personally, I know an album is hot when someone asks me, “What’s the craziest joint on there?” and I have to think about my answer for a minute because there’s not just one and it’s hard to decide. That’s the case with Blood Money.

    The album has tracks like “Pearly Gates,” which features 50 Cent and has Prodigy writing and speaking from the perspective of an atheist. “It makes sense considering how many people don’t believe in God,” 50 said. Later, “In Love With the Moula” has P and Havoc using money as a metaphor for a female. Very clever, not to mention, hood. What’s real important to mention here is Mobb Deep sounds extra hungry again, especially Prodigy. P really silences all critics with his rhymes on this album. If you’re from NYC, especially in Queens, you’re going to love this album. It’s vintage Mobb Deep. If you’re from anywhere else across the nation, you should love this album. (Moving mouse up) Damn, I hyped the album that much.

    Listen, with me having this platform, I feel it’s my duty to say when something is so on point. Blood Money is on point. 50 told us himself, just how key of an acquisition Mobb Deep was for G-Unit, especially for his own artistry. “They’re from Queensbridge projects and I’m from Southside,” 50 said. “Those worlds are not that far apart. It makes sense creatively and the hunger is there. Sparring with them is what’s taking me back to the way I’m supposed to be rapping. It’s going to be a great year.” Sure it is by looking like it Fif. Hey, I guess, f—in’ with 50 does makes cents. Mobb Deep is poised to do their biggest numbers to date. I don’t see how this album can fail. …

    Continuing with 50 for a minute, love him or hate him, one has no choice, but to respect the man. Ask 50 if he really, really cares about being King of NY or considered as one of hip-hop’s elite MCs. If you put $50 mil in the bank like it’s nothing, would you care? Sheit, if I’m in Fif’s position, I’m saying to myself and anyone else that’s cares to listen, “Y’all can have the King of NY title. Go ahead, it’s yours Nas, it’s yours Jay.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the artistry in hip-hop today. As a matter of fact, true artistry is what few MCs own and have an understanding of, while most MCs let it go right over their heads. But let’s face the facts on 50: the man knows how to create songs that sell. Point blank, end of conversation. At the end of the day, you may not like a sing-song hook on a track, but millions of others will and Soundscan reinforces that. …

    Fasho my nigga its all good

  22. William H. Sunday Says:

    I can never understand why people that say they LOVE hip-hop always tak about how much money someone has or how many records they sell. And then in the next breath will say that Black Eyed Peas isn’t hip-hop music.

    Too many dudes have respect for the journey that some heads take to their fortunes. Its 2005 and niggas still act like they is street monsters while every little dude in their old neighborhood is dysfunctional and illiterate. That is why colored people will remain in slavery. Y’all would sacrifice your humanity for scrilla. Some of y’all would give up your manhood I bet. There is way too much dickriding when it comes to rap music and that’s especially ironic since so many of the actors are faggots.

    I respect Nas because he don’t expect to be the soundscan leader, he do him. Labels will force you to do an ‘Oochie Wally’ track because they are in the business of moving product but Nas never gave a fuck about a label.

  23. nudlez be Says:
