Queensbridge, New York rapper Nas has confirmed reports that he has changed the title of his forthcoming controversial album from N***er.
Contrary to reports that the album will be titled Nas, the rapper told AllHipHop.com that the album will simply be untitled.
“It’s important to me that this album gets to the fans,” Nas told AllHipHop.com in a statement. It’s been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. It’s that important. The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the real title of this album is and what to call it.”
Nas will release another single from the upcoming untitled release, which will be his 9th studio album.
The album is due in stores July 1 on Island Def Jam.
