Nas recently revealed some details about his controversial upcoming album, Nigger, to MTV News, including some equally eye catching song titles.
“I have a song called ‘The Fear,’ ” he said. “The full title of the record is ‘The Fear of the Black Man’s D—.’ That’s some sh– you can get comedy [from], or you can get some seriousness from it when you talk about the barbaric castrations that happened in our past — which is very serious, nothing to laugh at.”
But the MC also clarified that he is not attacking any particular race, but rather trying to address a number of racial slurs that are often used against a variety of ethnicities.
“It’s about the attacks that have happened to blacks, whites, all ethnicities,” he continued. ” ‘Mick’ niggers, ‘guinea’ niggers, ‘kike’ niggers. I have a song called ‘You a Nigger Too.’ “
The rapper also revealed some more details about what listeners can expect from the album production wise. In addition to Jermaine Dupri and Diddy’s newly revamped Hitmen, Nas will also be working with longtime T.I. collaborator DJ Toomp.
“DJ Toomp is a humble cat,” he said of the Atlanta producer who has earned his biggest credits working with T.I. and more recently Jay-Z. “He has talent way beyond his years. He’s got every style you need: rock joints, R&B joints. I don’t wanna give it all away, but he’s the type of dude that can go anywhere.”
