LOS ANGELES, CA Thursday Oct.18.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- After Nas announced on stage last week that his upcoming album will be called "Nigga," there have been comments from various camps...

Fox News reported that a source close to Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman Antonio "L.A." Reid said: "There is no album release by Nas on the release schedule at this point. And they would be unlikely to release an album with that title. How would that look at Wal-Mart?"

Reverand Jesse Jackson voiced his opinion, "The title using the N-word is morally offensive and socially distasteful. Nas has the right to degrade and denigrate in the name of free speech, but there is no honor in it. Radio and television stations have no obligation to play it, and self-respecting people have no obligation to buy it," Jackson added. "I wish he would use his talents to lift up and inspire, not degrade, making mockery of racism."
