Video: Jay-Z On Nas' Nigga

MTV says Jay is calling Nas' choice misguided. I'm not sure I know what Jay is saying. He's not bringing his point home as far as I'm concerned. He's trying to say that this album won't deflate the use or meaning of the word.

LL Cool J was also asked about it, and he was quite eloquent with his opinion. LL calls it a good marketing strategy.

I'm still reserving my opinion until I can formulate it entirely. Considering that it's not mainly black people who'll purchase this album, I do have some concerns. On another hand though, I get Nas' point.
