I say do what you think needs to be done, Nas. It shows the growth of a man when he can do what he's done on the mic, both good and bad. and come out a better man on the other side. Love him or hate him he always got a statement to make on his albums (Destroy & Rebuild, These Are Our Heroes, Black Rebuplican etc). And don't forget, although his beat choices have, at times, been questionable, lyrically he's on his A game. Lets wait and see what he has to say on the album before we decide whether The Whole Nigger thing it was just a publicity stunt or not. I for one don't think it is. But i could be wrong.
