Is Nas Being Dropped By Label?
Def Jam is apparently unhappy with his controversial new album title
Nas is in danger of being dropped by his record label Def Jam because he wants to call his next album N*ggar, according to some reports.
The Queensbridge MC has been told he cant give the record the controversial title because shops in the US wont stock it.
A source at the legendary label told DotMusic: There is no way that we can put out an album with that title. Many retailers have already told us - flat out - that they won't carry it.
Nas was signed to Def Jam by his former nemesis Jay Zfor his last record Hip Hop Is Dead.
But reports now say the company are not afraid to drop him, unless he gives in on the album title issue.
The new LP was due out late last year but was quickly pulled from release schedules.
A definite release date has not been decided since.
