URB’s Nas Feature

Is available online.

Here he speaks on the insinuation that he is consciously trying to capitalize off the word Nigger.

“I can understand if they were talking to a certain artist who just makes stupid music all the day long, you know, that doesn’t really say anything, but I try to say some shit. I definitely know it’s a hell of a responsibility when I have an older generation of fans. I’m trying to be clear what I mean in the music. I’m definitely trying to have that responsibility but at the same time, this is my way of strapping up my bombs and committing a so-called terrorist act against an enemy that has been evil to my people, your people, whoever. This is all I can do. I’m not a wicked man; I can’t strap up a bomb and do that shit. But with my music, this is how I fight. It’s my therapy. So, let me be, let me say what I wanna say. That’s all I’m saying.”

Much of the article focuses on the album’s title, which may now be a moot point, but makes for an interesting read nonetheless.

    Through the lights
    cameras and action glamour glitters and gold
    I unfold the scroll
    spread seeds to stampede the globe
    when I’m deceased
    by then the beasts will rise like yeast
    and conquer peace
    leaving savages to roam in the streets.
    live e paying me to give in my gun
    trick my wisdom
    with the system
    that imprisoned my son
    smoke a gold leaf
    i hold heat
    nonchalantly
    i’m raunchy
    but things I do is real and never haunts me….

    -first half of Nas off of Rae’s shit (best verse EVER).
    he can say nigga all day long, i’ma listen

    ^Nah, he’s rappin’ in the right era just under the wrong circumstances. He coulda easily been the Yayo of the situation and had a bigger and better buzz. Nothin’ astronomical, but better than the situation he’s in. But he chose otherwise. Everybody wanna be the general, not enough soldiers. You gotta prove that you can handle the pressure in the field before you’re put in charge of your own platoon.

  27. pockets Says:

    smh @ crediting Kanye

    ^i was just gonna say that

  28. Two-Times Says:

    damn Nas is a genius for this whole move… he must had this plan from the jump. he got everybody talkin and buzzin about his album for months just the title, and then he changes it with like a month left…it did its purpose i guess, from a business aspect…

    he woulda had to pay like a million dollars for that promotion… smart business move by nas

    yeah you right.

    but Ransom grew alot more than Hitchcock has over the years. he’s way better now lyrically. Hitch would have been the Yayo of the team in my opinion.

    >>Dem titties are exquisite. I need a discog. stat.

    LF: I have the hardest time – finding old school music like Temptations and people similar, somebody send me a link to a site por favor. I mean anything older than 1979 and dead links galore.

    ^But that’s why the statement that follows was made. Joe has more buzz on the net more than any other rapper. As the industry begins to shift, more people will be relying on the net to get their name out there. Not to mention that major labels still wanna give Budden a shot but I assume he’s makin’ the wiser decision but weighin’ his options before inking a deal again. That could’ve been an opportunity for Ran to get his foot through the labels’ doors. In the meantime, he coulda just been doin’ joints with Budden and puttin’ out his own work. Many have done it. And the formula still works but ninjas get greedy and tend to go astray right before the opportunities start rollin’ in. Look at artists like Cool Kids, Kids In The Hall, Pac Division, DBlock, Wale, Little Brother, Max B, Jay Electronica, etc. All these cats are able to sustain a career via internet and if given the shot to be put in a better position by simply carrying their weed, then that’s the opportunity one should take.

    Smh @ ninjas wantin’ to be above weed carrier status. It takes YEARS for some weed carriers to get acknowledged outside of the shadow, but the benefits are well worth hit. Word to Splif Starr randomly appearing in Jake Steed flicks.

  36. PHOENIXXX Says:

    lmao

    Spliff Star should write a weed carriers instruction manual and go on a motivational tour on some TD Jakes shit

  37. pockets Says:

    ya i agree randsom shoulda waited before going at joey’s neck

    yo btw 9th wonder…that ninja looks EXACTLY like big l…

  38. PHOENIXXX Says:

    it pains me to think of the potental that Joe Budden, A Team, Fabolous and Stack Bundles had as a team. they got classics together

    greed and jealousy is a bitch

    angel dust aint too good for niggas either

    ^Word. He’s only 2nd to Bleek, due to the fact that Bleek actually put out about 5 or 6 albums, 2 or 3 actually being of quality, and 1 of ’em an arguable classic of that era (the debut).

    ^ That woulda been a helluva squad. But it seems the days of the cliques are over. A lot of blame could probably be put on Clue, since he has been aired out by many in the industry. And Ran is definitely better than Hitch. Hitch is mediocore at best.

    I aint feeling Maino too much. he’s hit or miss with me most the time.

    he doing alright though I aint mad at him

    he’s come a long way from his random diss tracks going at everybody for no reason

  50. Andy Says:

    Good to see Nas on the cover or URB. I don’t think Nas was trying to use Nigger as a gimmick, I think he was trying to stimulate more discussion about race / ethnicity / skin color in hip hop and america. It’s too bad about the album name change but, even with that in mind, a conversation has already begun.

    Don’t forget, there are still people talking about “Hip Hop is Dead.” (and rightly so)

    ^Even though I think much of the situation is outta his control, I think that’s a fair assessment on his behalf to not change the name of the album. Fuck DJ. But then Hova signed him and then got fired bounced so he has no one over there in his corner.

    Politics As Usual

    daps 2x…stay safe, you know people get ran up on selling bl’s now see the dipset tomfoolery. peace kid.

    >… i believe they are equals … not in accomplishments of course … but in talent, vision and obtained wisdom …

    ^Overstand. Nas was 18-19 on that first joint though, this guy has miles in comparison. But relatively speaking I get you…the lane he’s trying to get in is rarely carved.

I watch for a while and look to my left and leaning against the wall not 10 feet from me was Nasir Jones. He gave a nigga a nod, and I smirked the nigga and smoked my joe. At the time, Makavelli had just painted Nas as a liar trying to imitate Pac’s life, and so I was like fuck this fake ass nigga. I guess that’s life as a star huh. I didn’t even know that nigga and treated him like I knew he wasn’t shit. Now I wish I would have gave the nigga a pound. Yall stop the hatred. Take it from a recovering hatahaulic.
