Arrest Development Address Nas Album Title Controversy

(PR) It seems pretty clear that Arrested Development is back. The band’s latest album, and first new material in 12 years, is currently ranked #9 on the iTunes Hip Hop Charts, and the video for “Miracles” is in full-rotation at all major outlets. Critics are heralding the band’s triumphant return and, most importantly, frontman Speech is…well…speaking. Long known for being vocal about various social issues, Speech had some thoughts on rapper Nas’ new album title, ------.

"As a fellow artist, I'm a fan of Nas's artistry. As of yet, I'm not upset about him choosing to use the word for the title of his album, because so far, I don't know WHY he chose to use it. If I decide to buy this album, and the title is NOT justified, then it will show the true and warped motivation of not only Nas, but America's culture of glorifying the shocking and insensitive behavior of people, for sales, headlines, and ratings.

"It's also the reason I'm saddened when I hear comments about it being ‘a great business move’, or a comment like ‘at least people are talking about it’ because that is just another example of people wanting to gain the whole world—fame, fortune, power—while losing their soul. Mark 8:36. (Holy Bible) Nas, our present administration, and the entire entertainment industry needs to take heed to that scriptures meaning." – Speech
