Do You Get It?

I've actually been paying attention to how this whole Nigger thing has progressed... And, I must admit, I like a few of the songs I've heard... And, this is after I roasted this idea on this same blog a few posts ago...

I'm still not sure if I "get it". It sounds like Nas is trying to get at the idea of hatred on different levels... First of all, he's talking about how people hate each other because of differences (thus, we have slavery and racism). He also addresses self hatred. I don't know. That's my assessment.

It's gonna be sad when his numbers come back light. All this controversy to push like 113,000 units?

All we can hope for is good beats because Nas is obviously confused as to what he is trying to say. I think he figured if he came up with a controversial title and concept he could build content around it. He has a song called "Fried Chicken" with Busta Rhymes. Fried Chicken.

Durn it, B... I thought you had some amazing answer to explain what he is trying to say in this video...

Ha Ha Ha. Fried Chicken! What kind of self-coonery (new word I just invented, like bitchassness) is that.
