Is This The Cover To The New Nas Album?

That’s the word on the blogs anyway. Who knew this would be the classiest Nas cover since Illmatic? It’s certainly the classiest album cover to ever prominently feature a racial slur. Can’t wait to see the in-store merchandising options.

    I sure hope so

    So the title is “Igger” now? That’s much better, something everyone can enjoy!

    With that title, that parental advisory sticker is almost superfluous. I say almost because there’s no way the record stores won’t cover that incendiary term some way or another.

    Not bad. If that’s real, he’s playing this a lot smarter than he could be. I don’t know why I keep on buying Nas albums, though.

    It must be real.. how many file photos of Nas in an armchair reading the Financial Times are there?

    @slowburn: Hells yeah. Great photo, super-awkward type treatment.

    I am told that this cover is a reference to an oft-repeated racist joke that goes something like:

    Q: What do you call a black man in a 3-piece suit?
    A: (See Nas’ album cover for answer)

    Better than his other choice: “Rhymes with Trigger”
