After dropping the controversial “N.I.G.G.E.R.” title and then proclaiming that it’s still called “Nigger,” Nas unveiled the album cover for his 9th studio album last week.

Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges hosted a charity event for the Ludacris Foundation last week at the Ralph Lauren Store at Lenox Square Mall. The store closed it’s doors to the general public at 6:00pm for a three hour private shopping event.

“The turnout was amazing and the event was above expectation,” said Chaka Zulu, CEO and co-founder of Disturbing Tha Peace Records. “We know the Atlanta community is rich in so many ways and they constantly support DTP on so many levels.” (Source)
