Well Then Again Maybe Nas Is "Wright"........Check Out His Upcoming YRB Magazine Interview!

As I mentioned in the previous post, I still maintain that Nas' ire should have been aimed at the business of hip hop (media outlets, radio programmers, producers, etc) more so than Fox News, but he may be on to something regarding the Rev. Wright scandal. He's a bit late but better late than.....you know the adage. I'm not comfortable with his vulgarity but the spirit of his critique says it all. Check out this excerpt from the YRB (Young Rat Bastard) magazine (coming to a newsstand near you) article in question:

Oh and again, please accept my apologies for the expletives, folks-

August’s Politics Issue of YRB features Nas on its cover. By now everyone knows about the title to Queenbridge emcee’s 9th album – formally titled Nigger. Nas spoke candidly at an album release press conference and touched on some pressing issues affecting the country. He left his most vitriolic commentary for the N-word as well as Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

On the word “N-word”:
“The majority of rap albums are nigger albums – it’s a nigger culture. We took the horrific, bloody holocaust of the Black American slaves, and the word they called us, and transformed it into money…There are a lot of people other than blacks who are niggers right now – whether it’s dumb motherfuckers in the Dominican Republic where you got light-skinned people hating the dark-skinned one, and you got the same kind of thing happening in Haiti, Brazil....”

On Rev. Jeremiah Wright:
“That’s street corner shit. That’s that nigger shit, just on a higher level. That’s just a dumb-ass nigga. With all the degrees and intelligence he has, he throws all that out the window when he starts cooning. Reverend Wright is the biggest coon of the 21st century so far, and that’s just what it is. And I don’t give a fuck who he’s down with, where he studied at, he’s a great fucking coon.”

Is he Wright or Wrong?.....again, it's late but it may never be too late for Jeremiah Wright to return-to Senator Obama's chagrin.
