Nas Responds to Maxim Review Controversy
Nas recently spoke to the New York Post’s Page Six about a premature review of his upcoming LP, Nigger, that was published by men’s magazine Maxim. The magazine has come under fire recently after rock band The Black Crowes expressed outrage at a starred review of their new album, which Maxim did not hear. According to the Post, a Maxim writer also gave Nas’ album a less than stellar 2 ½ star rating after hearing an unfinished version. The magazine has since apologized for jumping the gun, but Nas expressed his disdain for the low rating. “I’d prefer [a review from] Playboy,” he told Page Six. “That kind of stuff doesn’t reach my radar or effect anybody around me. I don’t know what a music rating from Maxim is…I don’t know what it even means really.” According to the QB MC, he is still working on the project and it will be in stores April 22.
