Controversial release is due out this summer
Nas has revealed the details of his forthcoming album, due out in the US next month.
The album was originally going to be called ‘Nigger’, but Nas decided to leave it untitled following rumours that stores would not carry it with such a controversial title, as previously reported.
The album’s first single, ‘Hero’, was produced by Polow Da Don. Grammy-winning producer Ronson took the helm for ‘Fried Chicken’, a collaboration featuring Busta Rhymes.
“We met Grammy night in LA, and he said he wanted some stuff from me for the album,” said the Ronson in a statement. “I started thinking to myself, as a Nas fan, ‘What kind of beats would I love to hear him over?’ That’s how the Dapkings and I came up with the track for ‘Fried Chicken’“.
