Nas Names New Album “Nigga!”He did it last year with “Hip Hop Is Head,” and now Nas is attempting to spark some discussion and controversy with the title of his new album, “Nigga.” I’m sure homeboy has a damn good reason for naming his album this, but damn! Peep the story straight from BILLBOARD below:

During an Oct. 12 concert at New York’s Roseland Ballroom, the rapper told the crowd the album would be called “Nigga.” Def Jam had no comment on the title at deadline. The set will be the follow-up to last year’s “Hip-Hop Is Dead,” Nas’ Def Jam debut. The set has sold 743,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As previously reported, Nas will also be the subject of a “Greatest Hits” album, which arrives November 6 via his former label home, Columbia.

I wonder how long it’s going to take for Al Sharpton & Rev. Jesse Jackson to respond to this…
