LINK: Details About New Nas Album

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.”

    Stillmatic was airight but when that double joint came out afew years ago,I vowed never to waste my dollar on another Nas cd.If I like what I hear online,I might burn it,fitting,since Nas is burnin out anyway.And if hip hop is dead,and I want to agree,he is too

  • Big Kev

    Hey yo Nas, We don`t want Jermainne Dupri on production, we want DJ PREMIER!!! If u want to get back at making classics, you need PREEMO on the fucking boards. Don`t you remember that Illmatic and Stillmatic had Premier producing 4 tracks total(one 4 stillmatic).

    Preemo brings the best out of you, not Jermaine Dupri or DJ Toomp. Get back to the lab with Preemo, Large Pro, Pete Rock and creat the best album of all time. You got the talent……. NOW GET THE RIGHT PRODUCERS!!!!

    PEACE OUT.

  • HOMOTHUG

    Nas is the best MC alive..forget Jay-Z and Lil wayne….he is a true poet and lyrical genius….only 2Pac,BIG,and Scarface are better!..with the NIGGER cd..he will ruffle some feathers like he did with HIP HOP IS DEAD cd which was a very underrated cd..no thanx to the ringtone rappers(MIMS,RICH BOY,and SOULJA BOY TELL’EM..etc.) they proved Hip Hop was dying…thank God for Kanye West and now Nas…May this truly be the begining of a Rebirth!..no hetero haterz!..lol

  • MR ARAB

    Yes man people need to stop hating on Nas. The guy drops knowledge to music fans all around the world. He puts HIP-HOP on the map. Which is why i cant wait for the album to drop. And for all you 50 fans how much did you spend on his last CD.

  • KILL NAS

    HE IS A TRAITOR TO THE RACE, AND HE’S GOING TO START A RACE WAR. KILL HIM B4 A RACE WAR STARTS.
    KILL NAS. IM SERIOUS.

    THE BLACKMAN IS GOD!
    NOT A NIGGER!
    U FKIN HERMAPHRODITE!!!!
    SOMBODY BUY NAS A KUFI 4 CHRISTMAS SO I CAN PUT A BULLET IN IT.

    • Peg-Leg

      Who the fuck are you trying to say Kill Nas? Guess what? His intentions are good! Controversial, but good. The album title in and of itself shows he’s got something to say, so you shut the fuck up.

  • BIG O

    who the fuck is this clown? kill nas? kill you fucking idiot. i aint even going to make you happy by by giving you a real response. but just know what goes around comes around.NAS 4EVA

  • AK562

    Nas is only boring to dumbasses who cant comprehend what he’s saying. He’s also better than your favorite rapper. “Kill Nas!” LOL stfu mane you aint gonna do shit. Too bad its coming out in 08 it would have been the best album of 07.

  • GET OFF NAS DICK

    GET OFF NAS DICK! READ MY WORDS U FAGGOTS! AND U RITE I AINT GONNA DO SHIT TO NAS. SOMEONE ELSE WILL…PEACE

  • USOH

    … Listen what I have to say about this…
    I think that Nas is a legend, he is truly the God’s Son and Street’s Disciple. Also, he is the best MC alive. Although that this album is gona draw many … opinions … i think, even with this production, Nas will make his point, he will change some things, I have no fear for that. What I fear is that he will be maybe too direct in his songs, and you all know what happend too 2pac. Nas is my best rapper, but… I hope that all goes with no violence, yust knowledge and power of words, that’s what Nas is all about.

    Peace

  • Rashard

    Nigger is supposed to have Game, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel & John Legend on it. I am a close personal friend of Jungle and he told me tht shit.

    his song wit Wayne and Game is called “Killer” but will be refered to as “Fiend” on edited copies.

  • http://kellsfetish.com Lo-Doe

    I’ll be glad when this “Nigger” drop this album. This is going to be a great album and it will touch on a lot of political issues (something that a lot of people don’t know much of).

    • YO LO-DOE

      LEMME GUESS, YOU’S A CRACKA ASS CRACKA RIGHT? IF NAS HAD BALLS HE’D TITLE HIS ALBUM “CRACKER”. LET’S SEE HOW U LIKE THAT. FUCKBOY.

  • http://dubcnn.com raskizzo my nizzo

    that shit dont even sound right!
    I luv this dude music, but I hope this aint all about making money….

    Yo Prodigy, how that chin feelin?

  • john

    I see a lot of people saying Nas isn’t in a position to talk about racism; how is someone on the street talking about race problems going to make any difference? Nas probably can’t either but it is better for someone with a profile to do it. There isn’t a rapper out more independent than Nas. He deserves so much respect for a lot of the things he’s done, this is just another to add to the list.

  • AZR

    d-rox you’re a retard

  • http://healthydoseofskepticism.blogspot.com/ chris

    still hating on Nas, the only reason I haven’t been listening to his stuff is because of his beats, which says more about me than anything. but what I have heard of Street’s Disciple & Hip Hop is Dead is golden.

    Nas get’s a lot of flack for not using the right producers by everyone else and now is getting flack for not using the right producers by hard core fans. WTF, a n* can’t do right one way or the other is d* coming and going. someone mentioned what happened to Pac, wtf? the only relevance there would have been if he were talking about Suge himself, Pac was direct but the idea that’s what killed him is conspiratory, at best.

    f* producers; rappers rely too much on that s* what happened to real artists that could bring the s* regardless of who they were working with. Nas is that artist; I wasn’t feeilng the title because I feel it’s like the ultimate take back of the word on some profiteering off blaxploitation type s* but now I don’t know, seeing what he’ll be talking about. This is an album I’ll forget about until feb, then hear some hot tracks and want to go cop it at the last minute …

    I believe Nas is always reaching out to the world on every day issues. Nigger is being a major issue. Nas is already getting good feedback from various artist. 50 cent said I qoute ” Nas is just calling his album Nigger for shock value”. Meanwhile nas has never been the type of rap artist to play the red carpet and flashy light scene. I believe Nas is always naming his album with an important meaning and concept behind it.
