      Interesting album cover........the album looks to have some serious substance possibly.

      Feb... the so called "Black history month"

      but I think its going to get pushed back or shelved altogether (because of the protest) and he'll end up giving it to the fans for free

      I don't really know what kind of support he thought he was going to garner for this. Seriously, what kind of so-called "conscious" person wants his or her image plastered under the word "Nigger"?

      But then again, it is and effective marketing strategy because people are talking about it.
      "Oh Africa! When shall be the term of thy long degradation? Behold here, even now, I pledge thee, O my Mother, that I shall devote my years to thee, shall work for thy redemption, shall love thee and be proud of thee and glory in thy power now lying dormant and shall strive to bring it to the light. Take my youth, my labors, my love, my all and do thou when I shall have died for thee, take me to thy bosom, an untamed, untamable African." -Hubert Harrison

      I still don't understand how folks are comfortable listening to rappers say Nigger 100x during an album yet gets upset when someone names their album Nigger.

      You shouldn't listen to hiphop period if you're upset. Even our beloved Dead Prez & Paris use the word.

      I'm not upset about the title begin called that at all..........I'm just hopping he's using the title to make more of a statement then just fucking around just to sell some albums.

      maybe folks will see how crazy it looks as an album title and stop using the word all together??

      a similar thing happened when he released hiphop is dead...(its still dead commercially) After that album you had damn near every rapper claiming "Its not dead because I'm here..yadda yadda"... people were actually stepping up and putting out quality material (indie/underground albums ) and I honestly think that was his plan from the jump.. to wake people up.

      And that's what I'm hopping, and I hope that the album is primaily focused on getting the message across if dont that would completely defeat the purpose of it all.

      No one is upset bro. I have every single individual cd and cassette (u know what those are?) Nas ever came out with. I ain't the one to be tested on Nas by a youngin'. And I don't own an album that has nigger on it 100 times.

      I'm not goin down this "nigga conversation" road again. We got too many threads on here and i don't wanna come off as redundant.

      Any nigga who don't mind being called nigga or referring to themselves as such is alright with me. But I know better so I show better!!

      When Def Jam "allows" Nas to come out with an album entitled KIKE or 'hooked nose bagel eatin imposter of a jew' then we can talk about free speech and shit.

      Don't hold your breath for fear of suffocation...

      Peace

      Let them speak for themselves, as for me, I'm purchasing the album when it drops.

      Overall, Nas has never disappointed me. In fact, I find that the more I listen to his works, the more I begin to appreciate them.

      The Album cover itself is tight.

      In the words of Saul Williams "When I say Niggy, You say Nothing."
      Peace!
