Nas Album Pushed Back To February 2008
MTV has confirmed that Nas' controversial second album for Def Jam, Nigger, has had its release date pushed to February 2008. The album, which was originally scheduled for a December release, has made headlines for its title choice despite the fact that the Queensbridge MC has yet to leak any music from it. He is reportedly working with DJ Toomp, Salaam Remi and Diddy's new Hitmen on the album.
In related news, MTV also has confirmed that a recently leaked Nas track called "What It Is" is only a blend, with the MC claiming, "I never rhymed to that beat."
