    Bill O'Reilly has lashed out at Nas over his recent protest outside Fox News' Manhattan studio, calling him a "vile rapper" and adding, "As you may have heard, that guy is accusing Fox News of being a racist organization. This from a person who makes a living peddling the N-word and violent lyrics to his target audience of children and young adults. He is a real champ."

    The Fox host went on to attack Nas' record sales, saying his last album (Hip-Hop Is Dead) sold 355,000 copies in its first week as compared to Untitled's 187,000. "Not good," O'Reilly said. "I hope I'm not a 'racist' for pointing that out."

    Despite O'Reilly's idea that Nas "desperately wants attention," the latter managed to edge out Lil Wayne in Billboard's top spot last week.
