Nas Renegs: decides to change album name to "Nas"

After months of speculation that Island Def Jam/Universal would not actually release Nas’s new album with the title “Nigger,” Nas appears to have finally given in, changing the title to simply “Nas,” a Def Jam rep confirmed to Def Jam chair L.A Reid had previously stood by his artist, saying:”We stand firmly behind and beside our artists with pride and with pleasure. Anything Nas wants to do, I completely stand beside him.”However Nas’s comments to MTV last week did not echo the same sentiments.”Everybody is trying to stop the title…. Record stores are gonna have a problem in this day and time selling a record with that title. Who knows what’s gonna turn out and be on that title? Who knows what that title will be?”
