What was the most controversial album title in hip hop history has been changed. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that a representative for Def Jam has confirmed to them that Nas has made a decision to change the title of his new album from N*gger to Nas.

Nas recently spoke about the album change saying:

“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.”

Dang! I really thought this was gonna go all the way but, I guess not. Hopefully people still go out and support even though there is no big controversy behind it.
