Nas the Don stopped by the Angie Martinez show to talk about his NYE show, his upcoming album and the status of his relationship with Kelis. You won’t wanna miss this!
Another individual wants a piece of Nas’ wages — and it’s not the IRS.
Concert promoter, Patrick Allocco is suing Nas for $10 million over his kidnapping ordeal.
Back in January, we posted the story ‘Nas Wants To Save Abducted Concert Promoter!‘
Nas was ready to cut a big check to help get the concert promoter back to the United States.
TMZ broke the story… concert promoter, Patrick Allocco, was kidnapped at gunpoint by a local “concert impresario” who was FURIOUS when Nas no-showed at a heavily promoted New Year’s Eve show.
The “impresario” demanded Allocco fork over the $315k advance or else. Allocco was eventually freed from captivity with help from the US Embassy… but he’s currently holed up in a local hotel.
Nas wanted to help out, but refused to shoulder the entirety of the blame.
Nas and his team DID initially agree to perform the NYE show… but made the decision to call it off due to a “miscommunication” about travel plans.
Well now… the concert promoter who says he was taken hostage at gunpoint and held for ransom — all because Nas was a no-show for a gig — is now suing the rapper for $10 MILLION.
According to a new federal lawsuit filed Friday, Allocco wants the rapper to pay for what happened to him. Specifically, he claims he was was held captive for 50 days — during which time he says he was beaten and threatened constantly.
Allocco is suing Nas for $10 million, claiming he suffered psychologically, physically and financially.
At the 3:45 mark in this video uploaded by Hood Affairs, Gucci Mane interjects Rocko, who was praising Nas for coming out with no promotion on his album. Gucci Mane questions Rocko, “Did Nas make $150,000 blood money, first week, off a mixtape?” Gucci Mane goes on to diss Nas’ financial status by stating, “Nas f**ked up right now… Yeaaa!”
Watch the video below:
Gucci Mane may have a point. A few weeks ago, Nas’ Georgia home foreclosed and was sold through auction. And back in March, IRS filed documents in the state of Georgia to have Nas wages garnished — via the music publishing organizations BMI and ASCAP. And we can’t forget, Nas owed over $6 Million in taxes to IRS! We won’t talk about his child and spousal support obligations, he still has to pay ex-wife Kelis.
