LISTEN: Nas - N.*.G.G.E.R. (The Slave & The Master)
Ugh. I was really hoping Nas wouldn't have to take an L on this one. He was forced to change his N*igger album title after all by shady double-speak execs (looking at you Mr. LA Reid). As a saving grace he does give the following statement, and I think he should just promote it at concerts etc by it's original title anyway. Another way to make it better is taking creative revenge, and he does by dropping 'N.*.G.G.E.R. (The Slave & The Master)', which is one of the better Nas tracks in a while.
In a statement, Nas clarified that he considers his new album untitled, adding: "It's important to me that this album gets to the fans. It’s been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that, creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. It's that important. The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the real title of this album is and what to call it." (Source)
