Nas Set To Rule Next U.S. Album Chart
Veteran rapper Nas is on course to notch his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 when data are issued Wednesday, but sales will likely be considerably lower than those for his previous release.

Nas' untitled Def Jam release -- originally set to be called "Nigger" -- sold 113,000 copies during its first three days of sale through Thursday, tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan said.

Rapper Nas 'Untitled,' Unbowed Over Epithet
By Steve Jones, USA TODAY

Nas spent months trying to keep the N-word as his new album's name. But with the untitled disc set for release July 15, he's just glad it's finally getting out.
"I didn't want to push it back any more," says Nas (aka Nasir Jones), 34. "People are pointing at hip-hop, saying, 'Why are you using this language?' I wanted to go to the root of the problem."

Both outrage and praise greeted his announcement of the title last October. The NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were critical, while Island Def Jam chairman Antonio "L.A." Reid and Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Akon voiced support.

But the marketplace and the public determine if a title is acceptable, says David Ehrlich, an entertainment lawyer who works with hip-hop stars. "With the sale of CDs dominated by large mass merchants, the record labels tend to be restrictive in terms of what they allow as not to alienate customers," he says.

Review by Andy Reid of The Independent (UK)
Review by Katie Hintz of The Village Voice

I have listened to the whole CD and the subject matter is really good. Some of the beats are average, but overall it is better than a lot of the stuff I hear on the radio (at least for me...I like to hear about different topics other than the same old tired topics)I have read the reviews.

It seems like Nas has been getting a lot of bad press. I wonder why? Maybe it has something to do with the way his new CD was presented...but I ain't mad at him. He's just telling it like he sees it and what more can he do? People are talking about how he's pointing fingers and not offering solutions. You can't solve any problem until you recognize you have it. He's not a part of the problem, he's trying to be a part of a solution. I like what he's saying on his new video for sure. He just used the "n" word to promote his joint and now he can say it again..."made you look". A lot of people are voicing their opinion about Nas now. Let's see how many units he sells this week.
