    Hip-Hop acts that to my knowledge have never said "nigga":

    Aesop Rock
    Afroman
    Atmosphere
    B. Dolan
    Brother Ali
    Classified
    Common
    Cunninlynguists (I think?)
    Cypress Hill don't say it that much
    Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip
    Del the Funky Homosapien
    Devin the Dude (pretty sure he doesn't say it much)
    Eminem of course
    Eyedea
    Gang Starr don't say it much
    The Grouch
    Hail Mary Mallon
    Living Legends
    Mac Lethal
    Murs
    Non-Prophets
    Sage Francis
    Sole
    Blueprint (I think he's called Musab now)

    There's plenty more. Just look around a bit. I'm not really a fan of brag-rap either. Unless it's a battle. That's when it makes sense.

    Edited:

    oh and nerdcore sucks
    common says nigga alot

    Nah, I'm pretty sure you aren't intelligent if you use a retarded step-child's form of a racial slur, then expect it be taken in a friendly way. It's pretty annoying honestly.
    How about you stop acting all high and mighty toward people who have grown up under circumstances you'll never have to experience, and start being thankful you WON'T have to experience them.

    Christ kid you sound like you've never even met a black person before.

    Are there any hip-hop/rap albums that don't use the word "nigga" and have intelligent lyrics?

    Edited:

    Also Dan le Sac vs scroobius pip is more spoken word than rap. The distinction can get a bit blurry though

    Oh no, I have a different opinion than TH89, I must be acting high and mighty and have Aspergers Syndrome. I'm happy I won't have to experience them, but what does that have to do with the word "nigga" in rap? Being through hardship should build character, not destroy it. Regardless, the ghettos in America are heaven compared to third-world countries and it is pretty conceited to think otherwise.

    I have met PLENTY of black people. That still has nothing to do with the stupidity of the context of the word.

    Edited:

    I apologize that racial equality is a long-term and complicated concept that won't be cured in the course of 20 odd years
    If it is a long-term and complicated concept, it is going to take more than changing a word. It needs something more like what Martin Luther King Jr. did.

    Only recently chucked all my old rockist pretentions (aka long after I stopped regularly posting here) and discovered other kinds of music. Currently, the rap/hip-hop I've heard is generally of the late 90's/early 80's vintage - Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, that kind of thing. Good stuff. So, I'm now looking to broaden what I already know/like about this kind of music, and more importantly to get aquainted with more recent stuff, and I suppose this looked like an obvious place to stop by and ask.

    What is your specific grievance with black people using the word, your argument seems pretty disjointed

    Arguably reappropriating the word is in fact empowering and perhaps lessens its stigma, who are you to tell people otherwise

    jeez who even cares? most rappers say nigga, it's part of their vernacular, it clearly doesn't bother them to say it why should it bother you to hear it?

    well he says toejam so obviously he mentions that, but what else would Earl mean? especially considering the fact that he referred to islands and Earl is supposedly on the isle of Samoa

    New MF Doom track, collab with Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke. (it sounds amazing and i put it down to doom and jonny, for the strings and epic percussion) I get the feeling Yorke did a limited amount on this, Jonny definitely deserves more credit.
