A new joint from the rapper who names his album 'Nigger' has been released making references to Islam, Eminem and Lucky Dube's recent murder.
In a bid to make the word 'Nigger' having a subtler meaning, Nas has leaked a new song that proudly bears the title. The rapper who made headlines in October last year for naming his new album "Nigger", has released the single "Be a Nigger Too" that contains the controversial word all over its lyrics.
In the song, Nas talks about sensitive issues such as Islam, the NAACP, the murder of South African reggae artist Lucky Dube and also young Eminem using the N-word for racial slur but didn't make him mad. He begins with: "You are now allowed to listen to the radio, real niggers are back" before going with "I'm a nigger, he's a nigger, she's nigger, we some niggers / wouldn't you like to be a nigger too / They like to strangle niggers, blame a nigger, shootin' niggers, hangin' niggers / still you wanna be a nigger too... true," on the chorus.
The reference to Eminem and Dube goes: "Not mad cause Eminem said nigger / Cause he's my nigger / Wigger / Cracker friend / We all black within / We all African within / Some African's don't like us no way / A killin' happened in Johannesburg yesterday."
The Salaam Remi-produced track is not yet confirmed as a single from the Island Def Jam album. The official first single off the July 1 effort is expected to be released soon.
