The dreaded n-word album

Who else is hoping that Nas really does come out with an album called Nigga?

First of all, I think the new Nas album should be called Nigga because that’s what Nas wants to call it. I read just now Nah Right that LA Reid has been going around telling Fox News that if Nas really does try to pull some shit like that, he might have to put the kibosh on it. Man, what the fuck kind of bullshit is that?

It reminds me of back in the early ’90s when mad rappers were being dropped from labels behind that whole “Cop Killer” brouhaha. Kool G. Rap had an album with some dogs about to eat some white people on its cover that had to be pulled from shelves, and I believe KMD was dropped from its label before it could even release Black Bastards, which featured a sambo hanging from a noose on its cover.

Could you imagine either of those albums being released on a major label in today’s climate?

The astute observer that I am, I started calling this shit McCarthyism months ago, before there was all these congressional hearings about rap music and black agents for the cracka-ass crackas who really run the recording industry going around announcing their plans for self-censorship to the press.

Not to get all Martin Niemoller on you bitches, but, you see, that’s how it works. First they come for a black man’s right to call a woman a good for nothing beeyotch, even if she is; next thing you know, you can’t even use the dreaded n-word, even if it’s to make an insightful political statement.

Which is not to say that Nas is definitely about to make some insightful political statement. Obviously part of it is that he realized, after having released Hip-Hop Is Dead, that you can get a shiteload of free publicity just by giving your album a provocative title. And, indeed, Nigga the Album has already had its own segment on Fox News and statement from Jesse Jackson. Imagine if it’s actually released with that title.

And who knows? Even if this is all just a cynical bit of provocation on Nas’ part, it might spark a real conversation about whether or not we should be “banning” the dreaded n-word from public discourse, and whether or not it’s kosher (pardon the use of the term) for these Tall Israelis to be dictating the content of rap music in order to protect their business interests, especially if it involves the censoring of political speech.

Already, I’d say it’s served a useful purpose in that it shows how these attacks on a black man’s freedom of speech will ultimately have the effect of stifling political speech, even if the original purpose was to soothe the wounded egos of legions of aging, lonely black women.

Just like the aforementioned albums by Kool G. Rap and KMD likely would have flown under the radar had it not been for the original Bush Mengele trying to make an example out of Ice T, you have to wonder if Nigga the Album would be nearly as much of an issue if hip-hop wasn’t already under fire thanks in large part to Don Imus having the sheer balls to have an opinion on the grade of a black woman’s hair.

  • STRICKLY 4 MY NIGGAZ

    Seriously if it wasnt for this Don Imus bs and the congressional hearings on hip hop this shit wouldnt of made front page news. Pac dropped STRICKLY 4 MY NIGGAZ in ’93 and there was no big uproar back then. NWA anybody?

    • Cuban Link

      your a fucking idiot, NWA created the biggest uproar in hip hop history.And Pac was pretty much an underground artist at the time he dropped Strickly 4 My Niggaz. U never hear commotion about underground artists.

      Have you ever heard O’Riley talking about “White Man is The Devil”?No, because its an underground album and noone really gives a shit

      • STRICKLY 4 MY NIGGAZ

        dubmbass that is what I was saying about NWA they already went throught his typre of controversy. Pac was not an underground artist in 93 are u fucking serious where da fuck were you in 93 cuba or something?

        They just making a big deal about it since that Imus shit and the congressional hearings

  • Teenage Millionaire

    Rubbish – Nas is trying to sell a product – theres no need for such a debate among this country the N word was and is should be off limits.

    • INF

      are you bill o reily?

  • Incilin

    I soooooooo want Nas to get a chance to put out Nigga under it’s original name. And yes, controversal titles seems to be the new ploy for Nas. And that’s a pretty good idea if you ask me.

    >>>”Don Imus having the sheer balls to have an opinion on the grade of a black woman’s hair.”

    That’s just so disingenuous. Fuck Don Imus.

    You know a lot about stifiling debate and chilling speech, don’t you? Everytime you call me a “terrorist”, you do so to stifle my speech.

    I think Nas will end up releasing the album under this title. No law should forbid him from doing so. And if record execs are wise, they’ll let him do it, a) it’s good for publicity and b) who cares about the backlash. Nas will use the “N” word throughout the record anyway, if he uses it on the title, suddently it will be harmful to the record company’s business interests?

  • Robert A

    1ST
    Y can’t Nas have a album called Nigga didn’t Pac have a album called strictly 4 my NIGGAZ

  • k*star

    get at em Bol

  • Styles

    If he really wants to do it, maybe he should call it “The N Word” and say that N stands for Nas?

  • Reemycks!

    “Teenage Millionaire says:

    Rubbish – Nas is trying to sell a product – theres no need for such a debate among this country the N word was and is should be off limits”

    Man fuck dat! It’s not the N-word. It’s nigga!
    When Massa was crackin that whip he didnt say “Be a good N-word” he said nigga! I think folks have forgotten that black folk were slaves longer than we havent been slaves. Since everybody is so quick to want to asimalate we tend to forget that -Niggas- are desecendants of the slave trade. If we stop using the word the powers that be will still treat us second class. Point Blank. I say nigga because 1) I just like to & 2) It helps keep me connected with my motherland, the Deep South. These crackas try to cause an uproar over the word nigga cause then they have to deal with their sins and the sins of their forefathers. They want us to feel like we’ve asimilated and that the word is bad. While we as a people have made some progression we are still trated like niggas. When these conditions change I will stop using the word nigga. Until then Imma keep saying it, and the word cracka too, they aint fettin off that easy.

    I hope Nas’ album comes titled Nigga The Album- then we will have to deal with all of this shit str8 up.

    • Doobie

      That is some of the most retarded ass (non) logic that I’ve ever heard. You’re basically saying that we *are* niggas because THEY say that we’re niggas and because THEY treat us like niggas, therefore we should call ourselves niggas because Lord knows, they ARE the omnipotent, omniscent all powerful massa! However you define us is what we are, and we’ll be sure to stay slaves for all of eternity because you deemed it to be so ma-ma-ma-massa! And “It helps keep me connected with my motherland, the Deep South”?!?! What the? That must be more of that sterling “logic” at work.

  • PRODIAL SON

    Co-sign INCILIN’s comment… first “hip hop is dead” now “nigga” seems to me like Nas wants to generate a buzz and get people talking, always a good thing.

  • http://www.myspace.com/crockerishiphop Crocker

    Nas is a fucking genius. Not so much for his album cohesiveness here of late, but for the sheer fact that he knows the only mother fucker’s who will get him publicity are the uptight wannabee do-gooders of the world. Your Bill ‘O Reilly’s, your Jesse Jacksons, it’s one beautiful fucked up cycle. And in the end, they all get PAID! Jesse of your donations, Bill off the so called “cracka ass cracka’s” fascination with all things conservative and how to shut down rap, and Nas by placing himself out there as the so-called savior of Hip-Hop. Holy shit, I just impressed myself with that. God Bless Bureaucracy and Good Nite.

  • R

    I think it’s a good idea, There is a book that I read in college that was called Nigger and it was written by a white dude. It was a good book but that was not boycotted by the Sambo crew Jesse and Sharpton. The word is just a word nothing more we give it power. He is letting people remember who is in control, us not that word. We scared of that word just as much as most black people our of white people. We don’t see it but a lot of black uses white people standard of living as the right way, and not embrace who we are as people. We are still mental slaves, we only been desegrated 50 years ago. That is a 1 generation gap Most of our parents and all our grandparents can remember and tell you about segregation. Think about how they raised you they still fear white people Nas is showing us not to be afraid of the word and who we are.

    • uzi

      is the book that you’re referring to called “Nigger:The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word”?

      If so, it wasn’t written by a white guy. It was written by Randall Kennedy, who is Black and was a clerk for Thurgood Marshal and currently is a professor at Harvard Law. Some of the fake lawyers that post on these blogs should read some of his work.

      >>>”Correction: I said you’re *with* the terrorists. Whether or not that actually makes you a terrorist is a matter for debate.”

      Semantics. You know what I mean Byron. Given the current political climate, calling someone “with the terrorists” stifles debate on an extreme level. You’re smart, you know that – and that’s why you say it.

    >>”If we stop using the word the powers that be will still treat us second class.”

    That is one of the most ass-backwards arguments I’ve ever heard as a defense of nigger. You know full well when you call one of your boys nigga/nigger you’re not giving a shit about slavery or your “motherland.”

    >>”Theres no need for such a debate among this country the N word was and is should be off limits.”

    Now if you actually read the post Bol points out why NO words should be off-limits. It’s a word, it might be a “bad” word, a swear word, defamatory, etc. but we can’t arbitrarily remove it from everyone’s lexicon because some people don’t like it. Beware the tyranny of the majority.

    I like the idea of an album called nigger, but only if he has the balls to take really explore the idea; have one song that’s just 5 minutes of him saying nigger (a la Cam’ron’s “Fuck you”). Say something that adds to the argument, not just we can call each other nigger cause we know the difference, or it’s our word that we’ve empowered. That’s the real problem with Nas is that he can be absolutely brilliant and insightful one minute then the next defend the same tired platitudes that we’ve heard from all ignorant rappers.

    Freedom of speech!!!!!! This isa violation of freedom of speech.

    Here is a famous poem that relates to all the matters hip hop is going through.

    First they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up
    ’cause I wasn’t a Jew.
    And then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t
    speak up because I wasn’t a Catholic.
    And they came for the trade unionists. I didn’t speak
    up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
    They came for the Communists. I didn’t speak up
    ’cause I wasn’t a Communist.
    And by the time they came for me, there was nobody
    left to speak up.

  • 4 ya momma

    damn thats why nas is the best he is capitilzing off of everything taboo i bet that album is gonna be a pardody in the vein of “these are heros” all jigs and coons take cover nas is coming

  • Doobie

    If I thought that Nas was really going to be making some “insightful political statement”, I’d be all for it, but I think that Nas is just being an ass to stir up controversy (kind of like you much of the time Bol) to (hopefully) sell records. This is and should be his legal right, but—it’s also his record companies right to not release it if they think it’s a bad idea for whatever reason. And, I can understand how it presents a bit of a marketing delimma for the record company. The reality is that if Nas wants mainstream sales (which I’m sure he does) he has to have mainstream marketing and distribution. Something like this would have flown over better with me in the early 90′s. Rap actually was a powerful social force, and the word “nigga” had genuine social/political impact but that’s not the case any more in my judgment. It went from being about going against the grain and making a stinging statement to being about being a lemming-ass conformist trying to fit in.

  • kevin

    i thought i read well before hip-hop is dead dropped that he wanted to call that album nigga or the n-word or some shit like that. if it didnt pan out then, i doubt itl work this time either

  • Detroit

    no word should be off limits…don’t you get it….FREEDOM OF SPEECH! The freakin 1st amendment. the 1st, not the 31st, which clearly demonstrates it’s importance to america as a country. Remember they tried to do this to luke, but he went to supreme court…and guess what, HE WON! Don’t fool yourselves, fredom of speech is a huge part of American Culture. If you can’t say nigger, what can you say? if you can’t say ho, can you say whore? where does it stop? Does this count for movies also? what about re-releases of albums and movies which were made prior to this new wave of censorship? What if they pulled this of richard prior or ice cube?

  • Noobs

    Damn America is fucked up.

    Canada is the place to be for blacks I’d gotta say. It seems the exact opposite as the US, poverty-race-wise.

    Blacks, Asians, and all but whites = Majority living in the richest part of the cities.

    Whites = Majority is poor, on wellfare and live in crappy built townhouses, apartments, and old ass small houses from war times.

    Canada is for sure the most multicultural accepting country in the world too. Hands down.

    But as for the word Nigga, I see no problem using it. As times change, meanings change, and USUALLY nigga is just meant like “homie”. Black dudes call white dudes and everyone else that they homies with “nigga”.

    In America every race seems much more seperated. Y’all good at keepin the hate alive, huh. Keep trying to remind eachother about how whites treated the blacks in the old days. Ha, smart, just smart. You guys are idiots. All you are doing is building up the tension of racism.

    No one is letting the hate die down. Its your own faults you don’t think you are treated fairly.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    Until “They(Big Brother)” ban the word Nigger from usage within the United States Of America by passing a Law stating that it is punishable by Prison time, you will not get anybody(Black Or White) to stop saying….Nigger. It’s kinda like how Black Girls always complaining that it’s a Crime for a “Brotha” to date a White Chick, well, until it’s a Law for that which says all the Philip Michael Thomas-types will get 3 meals and a Cot at Rikers, you will not stop it. As far as a Faux-Five Precent Nation Doctrine MC like Nasir “Kufi” Jones naming his next LP after that word, Nigger, thats a expression of his Artistry and if thats what he wants who are We to tell him it’s wrong?

    Of course they don’t wanna segregrate, blacks generate BILLIONS of dollars per year in capital and revenue and if we segregrate then won’t anyone else get their share of the BILLIONS!!!!! shyt i have pot holes on my blocks they could probally fix for $50, but they won’t even after we’ve complained for the last 3 years!!!!

  • og bobby j

    i honestly couldnt give a fuck..unless it is called illmatic or it was written…i aint checkin for it anyway. Why does the title of an album need to be reviewed for content but the album itself can have any wording in the world….Shit is backwards and everyone is to uptight. Let him name it whatever he wants….then it is up to the consumer to purchase it, be offended by it or break up trees on it.

  • Fin

    The reason it’s ass-backwards is because you state that if we stop using the word “the powers that be will still treat us second class.” As though the magical NIGGER word is the only thing between Barack Obama being a viable candidate for president and blacks “be[ing] slaves again with in the next 50 yrs.”

  • yeh right

    C’mon people we have managed to take a word that was once used for racial intent and turn it around. Now the white man has to hear his very own son and his friends calling each other n@gga. That’s justice.

  • Ace

    I fail to see the outrage here. Apparently, everyone in America has forgotten that a book came out called Nigger. I guess when an academic says the word, it’s alright. But, when Nas says it, everyone has to get their draws all in a bunch. If anyone censors this album, they are only exacerbating the problem of us not having, as R. Kelly would put it, real talk.

  • The Legend (MONT)

    Errbody knows there’s a difference between us in the black community calling each other NIGGA …and all the other races calling us NIGGERS. I can seperate the two ….it’s a form of expression that we use. Yeah, it’s not the politically correct thing to do as far as that being the title of your album but is Nas bringing down the whole culture by doing it???? HELL NAW!

    Nas knows what he doing …he just pouring more gasoline on the flame. It is what it is …….

    Now, I’m sitting here listening to “Thief’s Theme” thinking bout how I would rank all of Nas’albums in order. So here it is:

    1. Illmatic (no brainer)
    2. Stillmatic (again, no brainer)
    3. It Was Written (slept on)
    4. Streets Disciple
    5. God’s Son
    6. I am ….
    7. Hip Hop is Dead
    8. Nastradamus

    what y’all think?

    • H-LO

      If you (not you, everybody) think about all his album titles/themes, HipHopisDead and Nigga aren’t really that more controversial than the others. The difference: they are more food for thought than say the fairly ridiculous Pharao/Prophet themes. And you could make a case for God’s Son/Streets Disciple being quite blasphemous.

      Here my list:

      Very Good:

      3. The Lost Tapes
      4. HipHop is Dead
      5. God’s Son
      6. It was written (overrated, though still pretty good throughout, forshadowing the disastrous successors)

      ——————————————

      Mixed Bag:

      7. Streets Disciple (similar to Blueprint², if you take the time to find the good ones and cut the rest off it’s aktually strong; worst album cover)

      8. I am … (as an album utterly boring or annoying with some fUcKiNg hooks; at leats one really great song, Nas is like, and a couple notably ones, Hate Me, NY State of Mind part 2…)

      His post-Illmatic discography is better than it’s reputation. I hope he can keep the name, brings an album that is as fiery.

  • Greg

    I hope for my sake and the rest of white people they change the name so i dont have to keep referring to it as the “new nas album”….then when he drops one next winter im gonna actually have to refer to it as nigga and well, shit is gonna get messy

    • MIAMI NIGGA

      I think this would be a good album title. If you listen to Nas then you know he will be making some type of statement in this album. Fuck middle America they should be scared. This should be looked at as revolutionary, instead everyone (well mostly everyone)outside of the hiphop community will look down on it and protest it. I say fuck em all cause guess what they calling us in the privacy of their homes. Thats right a NIGGER! and not with the “a” at the end.

      Sadly speaking though it may never happen. LA Reid aint got the balls for that!!! Dont forget he’s the boss not Jay.

  • F*CK NAS, REAL TALK

    Here’s the deal, Imus felt he can call black women hoes because we say it in hiphop. This album will give WHITE PEOPLE LICENSE TO SAY NIGGA TO OUR FACES AGAIN. Think about it, the reason white people feel uncomfortable wit using it now, is because they know in these days and times there’s nothin to stop us from whoopin they ASS if they say it. Let’s not give them an excuse to. Nas is about to set us back 100 years if he does that dumb shit, and i will PERSONALLY slap the SH@T outta him iF he keeps this lame publicity stunt up. If you really a “braveheart” lets see u call ya album “Cracker”, how bout that? Ah, not so easy is it?

  • stoneyisland

    No major label is gonna let Nas put out an album called NIGGA. Any self respecting black person shouldnt get behind some stupid ass stunt like this one either. We as blacks are always talking that equal shit but we continue to fall into that ole stupid ass trap. I mean if I walk into a record store and hear some white dude saying you got that album NIGGA I am going upside his grill. Any black person who would put a title out such as this only empowers white people to use the word. When white people buy 80% of all rap music do we as a people want to give thema free fucking pass to use the word NIGGA? I lost what respect I had for NAS, it seems the only way he can move albums anyway these days is having controversial album titles. I will never buy anything by Nas again. My son wont be allowed to but anything by Nas and his kids, kids better not buy shit from this sellout. I loves me some black people but I hate niggers………….

  • Weasel

    I don’t understand why some people still make such a big-ss deal with this word *nigga*. The meaning of this word has long evolved to a non-derogatory term that we black people use among ourselves to mean *brotha* or *homie*. Out here in South Africa you even here it uncensored on radio.But it’s certainly an offensive term if used by a white dude to a Black.
    Peace niggas!!
