Nas’s new album gained its fair share of buzz before release because he originally planned to call it the 'n-word.' He settled on no title at all. Other album controversies, from the Los Angeles Times:
- The Beatles, Yesterday and Today: The so-called butcher cover featured mutilated baby dolls before being quickly pulled.
- The Coup, Party Music: Released in 2001, the unfortunately coincidental cover pictured a band member blowing up the World Trade Center.
- Nirvana, In Utero: Big retailers like Wal-Mart and Kmart objected to the title of one song, “Rape Me,” and the fetuses on the back cover.
- Mom's Apple Pie, self-titled: The album's illustration was pulled when it was revelealed to show a woman's private parts upon close inspecton.
- Roxy Music, Country Life: Scantily clad women in a forest caused an uproar.
