This is some DEEP shiz!
We hope Nas is proud of himself. An American concert promoter, named Patrick Allocco, was kidnaped in and held at gun point in Angola simply because the rapper failed to show up for a heavily promoted concert!
You see, the Nas and opening act Jemiah Jai were paid $315,000 to perform two shows in the African country but "missed their flight" and couldn't make the concert.
This really pissed off the people that invested in the the concert, especially since Naz and Jemiah Jai had already been paid. So they did the most business savvy and terrifying thing they could think of: they kidnapped Allocco and his son and held their ransom at $315,000!
After lots of scariness and drama the U.S. Embassy stepped in a bailed out the concert promoter and is boy.
Patrick and his son issued this statement from the local hotel were they are now "in residence":
"The hope is that Nas and Jemiah Jai will return all of the monies that were wired to them immediately so that our ransom may be paid and our safe return to the United States may be facilitated."
It sounds like the two men won't be able to leave Africa until Nas returns the money!
We have no comments from Nas or Jai, but we hope they take action soon!
We can't imagine what kind of irresponsible and lazy person would let go of a $315K gig AND screw over this many people! Oh, that's right - he's a RAPPER!!
