NAS Talks to MTV about Nigger

November 30, 2007

“I have a song called ‘The Fear,’ ” he said. “The full title of the record is ‘The Fear of the Black Man’s Dick.’ That’s some shit you can get comedy [from], or you can get some seriousness from it when you talk about the barbaric castrations that happened in our past — which is very serious, nothing to laugh at.”….

Nas’ 310 “Disciple II” Shoe

November 19, 2007

Though Reebok was the first company to sign a hip hop artist to create a signature shoe, Sketchers sub-brand 310 Motoring has been actively involved with expanding their line to include signature models by hip hop artists. With the success of The Game’s album Documentary 310 signed him to create a shoe called “The Hurricane”. Though not a hit with sneaker connoisseur, the shoes still have been a decent seller.
310 Motoring has also signed NaS who has been a long time fan of Nike Air Force Ones and was one of the legendary hip hop artists who performed at the Air Force 1 25th Anniversary party. His new signature shoe definitely has some design elements that are very similar to the Nike Air Force 1, but of all shoes that look like Air Force Ones, these are honestly one of the better done shoes. The shoe, the Disciple II, is available now at 310 retailers for $83.95. Pics from MZEE.

Nas’ “Greatest Hits”: A Track-By-Track Journey With the Pride of Queens

November 8, 2007

Great feature from Rolling Stone:

Today, the pride of Queens, Nas, drops a Greatest Hits album that spans from 1994’s Illmatic — probably the best debut in hip-hop history — to 2004’s Street Disciple. No tracks from his most recent album, Hip Hop Is Dead, were included (his last label, Columbia, put out the Hits package), but Nasir says not to worry. “I think it’s better to start off slow,” he explains in an exclusive RS track-by-track analysis. “I’m thinking about doing it again and taking it to another level with a box set. I don’t think there’s a box set in hip-hop. Maybe mine will be the first.” Also missing is “Ether,” the MC’s brutal takedown of Jay-Z. ” ‘Ether’ is a battle record that was not really appropriate right now,” he explains. “That’s not where my head is. I was in a different place. The Greatest Hits was about a career, and that’s just one piece, so I didn’t want to mess it up with that song.”

Universal Forced To Change Nas Album Name or Lose $84 Mil

October 26, 2007

What would you do?

A New York Assemblyman has called on Universal Music Group to change the title of Nas’ upcoming album, Nigger, or lose $84 million in investments.

As reported earlier, Nas announced his album’s controversial title at a concert two weeks ago, and the news was met with stern disapproval from Reverend Jesse Jackson and The NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People).

Despite the uproar caused by his announcement, Nas said he would not be changing the album’s title and claimed that his label Def Jam, a subsidiary of Universal, had not offered any resistance to the title.
