Ship-Wrecked Mexican

In light of Nas naming his next record N*gger, I'm naming my new record Ship-Wrecked Mexican. Since I've been mistaken for a one my whole life, I figure this would be appropriate title in perpetuating racial slurs in popular culture.

I'll be interested to see how well Nas' record sales do once he puts the record out. I doubt Walmart, Best Buy, et cetera will carry the record as-is. I wonder if they'll black sleeve it or not even print the name on the case. I have a feeling because of the controversy it's definitely going platinum. He definitely caught a lot of people off-guard with Hip-Hop Is Dead with a bunch of people trying to fight that notion. I wouldn't be surprised if the next slew of records coming out will follow suit to try to capitalize on controversial names. Here's a list of ones I thought of:

1. Cubs Win The World Series!
2. Hip-Hop Jihad
3. A WineHouse Sober
4. Stay Poor...While Trying
5. XXX-Rated Girls! - Sponsored by McDonald's!

Well, Nas, let's see where this goes.
