Lennon Drops The N Bomb, Why Can’t Nas

Personally I never understood the whole controversy surrounding the title of Nas’ soon to be released album. I think a lot of haste judgments were made before we even got the chance to hear his side of the story but now that media pressure has caved in the walls of Universal, the album formerly known as Nigger will now be untitled.

Funny enough I found this video of John Lennon, talking about his song “Woman is the Nigger of the World” in which he makes some interesting arguments for his use of the N word.
