Shut Up, Ni**a



Look... I'm all about artistry and free speech and all that. And I even convinced myself that maybe Nas had something to say w/ his new album, Nigger. I'm not so sure about that now. His soliloquy of nothingness in this clip solidifies that he's just trying to be controversial to sell records. Shit is bizarre.

believe it or not, this makes sense to me. dr. cornel west touched on this awhile back in his books and lectures about the 'nigger-zing of america'.

i get what nas is saying.

I don't know if I get what he's trying to say, but my question is if you're going to wear a t-shirt with "Nigger" on it to the Grammy's, shouldn't you have a better explanation for why than what he gave? Nigger's true meaning is one who is ignorant but in America especially, we left that meaning behind a long time ago.

Man, his explanation was terrible. Maybe we'll get a better understanding of his point when the album drops...


But, I doubt it.
