The 'Nigger' Album


nas.jpgWe've tip-toed around this thing long enough. Now, since we're all grown here, let's get two things out of the way:

1. Nigga
2. Nigger

Let's proceed.

If this album does happen provided UMG doesn't cave to Jeffries, us Nas fans will be saying that word in the fourth quarter and beyond a lot more than we planned. Most of us suspect that Nas' intentions are honorable; he's one of the most talented and celebrated rap artists of the past fifteen years. While there have been a few missteps in his oeuvre ("Hate Me Now", "Oochie Wally", the Firm album) we can't deny the power and importance of "One Love", "One Mic" and "Black Girl Lost".

We
now call upon you, the progressive, intelligent SoulBounce Reader, to
inject some right-mindedness into this debate, since much that has
already been offered, isn't.

Is he doing it for
attention? Or does he really have a point to make and alarmists just
don't get it? And even if you do see where's he's coming from, do you
think this is a smart move? Or maybe we should take the "wait and see"
approach.

Let's bear in mind, that there are lots of rap albums out there with
less-offensive titles and with far more damaging, disrespectful, and
degrading material in one song than Nas' entire catelogue.

Comment away.
