Nas | “Nigger” Update

7 04 2008

The original release date has come and gone, but superstar rapper Nas’ remains hopeful that his controversially album “Nigger” will one day see the light of day.

Featuring a mix of highly charged song titles and hot-button topics Esco has found out that it will not be easy to pull in collaborators.

“I don’t wanna reveal everybody that I worked with yet,” Nas added. “Because I’m still working [and] still finishing up the record. And I think I want that to speak for itself.”

While trying to finish his latest project, Nas has kept a close eye on the Democratic primaries. While he won’t formally tip his hand on who he will ultimately support, he does have a favorite.

“I’d love to see Barack Obama become the president. He’s the face of America, hands down,” the rapper said. “There’s no two ways to look at it, man. The man’s got what it takes. He’s serious. As a kid, you always think, ‘We’ll never see a black president,’ you know? ‘There’ll never be a black president.’ And you always feel that way. Everybody’s always grew up that way, black and white. So I think now, with Obama having a great chance of winning, I think [with] black and white, there’s been something lifted off their shoulders. It’s like, ‘This can happen. This can be great.’ And it’s about time.” …

No official word on when “Nigger” will be released.
