This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Maybe he should be leaving on the midnight train out of Georgia!
If the rapper who sang The World is Yours and If I Ruled the World wielded as much power as his lyrics suggested, taxes wouldn't be a concern!
Unfortunately for Nas, the world is NOT his and taxes are a concern!
The Georgia Department of Revenue says the musician owes the state over $1 million in back taxes, and they're garnishing his wages on his upcoming Live Nation tour to obtain them!!
Holy guacamole, that's mucho dinero!
His home sold recently in a public foreclosure auction, and he still can't settle his tax debt with the equity!
Thankfully, Nas teamed up with Lauryn Hill for what we expect should be a crowd pleaser of a tour. Hopefully they'll sell tix and he can make a dent in his debt.
Celebs make these mistakes so frequently, music companies should hand out tax accountants with each new record contract, LOLz!!
