Shady article at suggests Def Jam might drop Nas because he is refusing to change the name of his upcoming album.

They write:

We’re hearing some crazy talk coming out of Def Jam’s offices this week. According to one of’s trusted insiders, the top label is actually considering dropping Nas.

According to our insider, the trouble is over the naming of Nas’ new album. You see, Nas is refusing to change the name of his new album (which is tentatively called, the N-Word) – and that has the label’s top brass furious. The insider told, “There is no way that we can put out an album with that title. Many retailers have already told us – flat out – that they won’t carry [an album with that title] … Nas’ last album [Hip Hop Is Dead] sold pretty well, but not well enough for the headache he’s causing [the label].”

And there’s more. Our insider claims that there should be an announcement coming from the label this week. The insider told, “If Nas doesn’t change his mind, he’ll be dropped. And he doesn’t have to much time to come to that realization.”
