Nas Enters the Fox News Fracas

More fun with Fox News! Nas has a few choice lyrics for the station in his newest single, “Sly Fox,” targeting in particular New York’s own Fox 5, and, well, he seems kinda pissed! But there’s more to the story, and it involves a strain of the very censorship he inveighs against. Seems he’s capitulated in a more personal, extremely well-played battle and is scrapping plans to title his new album Nigger, opting instead for, sadly (and, media frenzy accomplished, smartly), Untitled. Nas tells the WSJ (!) of the sudden change: “Because of the heat coming down on me I saw it becoming a circus. I told myself that if it came to that point that I would make the change, because there’s a message in that, too.” We suppose there is!
