As we previously reported, Nas has changed the title of his new album, previously called "N*gger." Now Nas has issued a statement regarding the change.
"It's important to me that this album gets to the fans," said Nas. "It's been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. It's that important. The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the real title of this album is and what to call it."
Def Jam Records representatives are saying that the album will be untitled. A single from the album, which is Nas's ninth studio album, is expected to be released soon.
