THE NIGGER NEWS

Photobucket



So I go through my daily online news this morning and look what I found at CNN.com:


"On the untitled album, there's still an air of militancy, with the threats of violence directed toward those who aim to oppress African-Americans.

He boasts likenesses to Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton and threatens to throw Molotov cocktails in the name of civil rights murder victim Emmett Till.

On "Testify," Nas warns that he's loading a magazine to "send these redneck bigots some death in a bag/choke him out with his Confederate flag/I know these devils are mad."

It's great to see that CNN actually covered this in what comes across as a non-biased, journalistic way. Nas just might see some numbers and garner even more respect as one of Hip-Hop's best for making an album that targets the most feared word on the planet. Even if he changed the name, I totally support the idea behind this one. Untitled dropped yesterday. Go buy it.


"No matter what the CD's called / I'm unbeatable, y'all!"
Nas - "Hero"

Racism is alive. He is a white-hating, militant that wants to punish this redneck, white-wash cracker for the crimes of his great-grandfather and ban my hatred on him when he is prepared to throw Malatof Cocktails and kill me because of the color of my skin. I will not stop using the word Nigger until the Niggers stop calling me and my race Rednecks. You guys don't understand that my country didn't even have black slaves, and yet I'm under Racial Threat because of what some Redneck did 75 years ago.

Grow up and get over it. My family was oppressed by whites, AND WE ARE WHITE. Maybe take your attitude and run it toward the Glutonous, Greedy Rich, which these "Rednecks" were and leave the rest of us that didn't have anything to do with it alone.

Your country didn't have black slaves? Where the hell are you from?

On another note, you're either oversimplifying or misquoting Nas for that "redneck" line.

If he rapped about killing white people for the fun of it, not only would he be "blacklisted" by the white/Jewish-owned music business, he would also lose a large deal of his fanbase. Which is, of course, white.

They buy 80% of albums in the US. 160k white people can't be wrong about "Untitled", and that's about exactly how many of them are buying it this week. I wouldn't support him if he was just a race-baiting black supremacist.

And it sounds like you'd hate him anyway, before he ever got a chance to toss a Molotov cocktail through your window.
