So the talk has already heated up over the title of Nas' ninth studio album, Nigga (now changed to Nigger). FOX News, never slow to report on these types of stories, reported that the next Nas album would not bear the controversial N-word. In a MTV News interview, God's Son clears up a few things:
"I don't know where that [report] came from and neither does Def Jam," Nas said early Thursday morning (October 18) in a Manhattan recording studio when asked about a Fox News article published earlier this week. The story quoted a "source close to" label head L.A. Reid, who scoffed at the thought of the company supporting an album with such a title, and also claimed the album was not on the label's release schedule. "None of us knows where that came from."
More importantly, he takes out time to address our "black leaders":
"I'm a street disciple," Nas responded, quoting one of his earlier album titles. "I'm talking to the streets. Stay out of our business. You ain't got no business worrying about what the word 'nigger' is or acting like you know what my album is about without talking to me. Whether you in the NAACP or you Jesse Jackson. I respect all of them ... I just want them to know: Never fall victim to Fox. Never fall victim to the sh-- they do. What they do is try to hurry up and get you on the phone and try to get you to talk about something you might not know about yet.
"If Cornell West was making an album called Nigger, they would know he's got something intellectual to say," Nas continued. "To think I'm gonna say something that's not intellectual is calling me a nigger, and to be called a nigger by Jesse Jackson and the NAACP is counterproductive, counter-revolutionary."
Wow. Couldn't have said it better myself.

The Capo has made his move, and it's not with G-Unit: it's with Sony. [Miss Info]
Lil' Wayne has no problem with being a whore, along with other statements clearly made under the influence of some drug. [Vibe]

Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Big Boi, Lil' Wayne, Fat Joe, Rick Ross & Baby on the 1,000th posse cut from Khaled this year.
He must have 30 verses each from Wayne, Jeezy, and Ross locked away somewhere. Not to mention he gets about 200 verses a day via e-mail from Fat Joe.
