The tax-man has cometh and he has cometh HARD.
Back in February, we reported that Nas owed the government over $6 million in taxes!
We can’t even fathom how anyone who can afford an accountant could let this happen, but there it is.
Now, the government has apparently grown tired of twiddling their thumbs waiting for the rapper to pay his dues. Obama’s crew have decided to take what’s theirs and garner Nas’ wages until the amount is paid in full.
Basically, the next time you buy a NAS album, you are paying off his taxes. LAME.
That being said, we have no sympathy for this renewed trend of tax-evading celebs…it is SO not Illmatic.
You have the $$$ so stop being stingy!
It’s only fair!
Will U still buy Nas’ music knowing it’s going straight back to the government? Or will U find a sneakier way of obtaining his tunes??
