Niggaz With Attitudes

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« NWA refers to Northwest Airlines and Niggaz With Attitudes, and I just learned the latter today. It’s not a secret, “niggaz with attitudes” is pronounced clearly in the band’s title track of their first album. It took their White promoter from Cleveland to die before I know about the band. Robert who is Black American and about my age did not mock me for linking NWA to Northwest Airlines, but he had reason to. Naively I had a sense any variation of the word, “nigger” of my dad’s generation vanished from common American language, and resurfaced as, “nigga” or “niggaz”, but Robert verified my suspicion — some version of the N word has always been common in American language. »» about me 302-990-2346 nearlincoln@hotmail.com contact us
