Nas' New Album Cover Says What Words Apparently Cannot

Despite the controversy where his album title intentions were seriously misunderstood (and... mispromoted in a way that lent confusion), Nas is still making his point clear about how he feels people of color are regarded in Amerikkka, on the new cover of his now untitled album.

Yep. I think this album cover will pretty much kill the arguments that believe he intended to glorify the 'n' word... or maybe not? We live in strange times. Some believe we don't need a reminder of what our ancestors were subjected to, because despite the oppression we still experience, plenty of folks think we've 'arrived'.

What's your take?

Reminiscent of a cover Dead Prez wanted to use. But I'm very intrigued. Although I know he contradicts himself from time to time. I'm really hoping the CD is a cohesive unit.

Peace Vee *_^

Word? He should have left it to Dead Prez to do their thing. I thought it was his own original idea. Thanks for the heads up.

Shine on
