That nutty Nasir has decided on the title of his next album, and it will delight Congress, parents, and conservative radio d-bags alike.

He’s calling it Nigga.

I guess that’s slightly less confrontational than the proposed first title for 2006’s Hip-Hop Is Dead–which was set to be the full-on N-word until his label demurred–but if he does manage to get this past Def Jam, props are deserved for at least taking it all the way out there. Somewhere Bill O’Reilly just squirted with glee at the angry editorial possibilities.
