Nas Album Pushed Back!
As the Hip Hop community is up in the air and several civil rights activists are in disgust over Nas upcoming album title; fans are still waiting to hear music from the controversially titled LP, Nigger.
According to reports from MTV, Nas camp has said that the album has been pushed back. The new release date will fall on February during Black History Month.
As Nas still works on finalizing the track list, he took the time to tell MTV that the leaked snippet for a song called What It Is will NOT make the album, and in fact is just a fake blend of leaked vocals on top of a random beat.
I never rhymed to that beat, says Nas of the track (that you can stream/download here).
With production to close within the next week, Diddy and LV & Sean C (who produced 9 tracks from Jay-Zs American Gangster) are expected to lend beats to the album that already features production from DJ Toomp and longtime friend and collaborator Salaam Remi.
