The “n-word” is back up for debate thanks in part to Suge Knight and Y.G.’s new statements on being called the racial epithet.  TMZ was on hand to record Knight saying he’d rather be called a “n—-a” than an African-American (his exact statement was , “We not from Africa, we Black!), and a day later Y.G. weighed in with the same overused excuse as to why being called “n*gga” is a sign of love.

Not sure what kind of “love” this guy is used to but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

On the flip,  Chuck D doesn’t actually want to be called “n*gga,” and thinks rappers who use the word “more than three times” in a song are just being lazy.

Regardless of where you stand, the fact is rappers have no problem defending using “n*gga,” or being called “n*gga” —so long as it’s not by a White person…that is intentionally trying to be racist (there are lots of rules to this n-word situation).

Check out 10 other rappers who have publicly defended the n-word.

Their parents must be so proud.
