Holy Grail! Our cup has runneth over with this great news!

It looks like Justin Timberlake and Jay Z will keep on their Suit & Tie, and have added Nas to their Rat Pack!

The trio will be featured on Nas' new album on a track entitled Sinatra In The Sands, and in a recent interview Nas explained how thrilling it was to record with the two Js:

Excitement…Excitement to work and be in the place that we’re all are at, musically. Those are the guys who lasted the test of time, and those guys are at the top of their game. They’re just company to be in. So that’s the whole vibe of that. And of course the title says it all.

Ugh, if the title says it all as promised, this song is going to be king of the hill, top of the heap, a number one!

Nas Responsible For Kidnapping?! $10 Million Lawsuit Pending!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersNas

Uh Oh!

Nas is being sued for $10 million after a concert promoter was kidnapped when the rapper didn't make it to an Angola show.

The concert promoter, Patrick Alloco, filed a federal lawsuit this past Friday. In the paperwork he states that Nas should be held responsible for his kidnapping back in December of 2011. When Nas failed to appear at the show with a $300,000 advance, Patrick and his son were held captive and beaten by another promoter for 50 days.

Along with the torturous kidnapping, Patrick lost his home and job and is hoping to be reimbursed for the psychological, physical, and financial damages he has suffered all thanks to Nas' absence that night.

Nas, however, claimed that he never had official plans with the promoter.

The Life Is Good artist said in regard to the allegations:

Nas' Tax Debt Ain't Peachy; Georgia Garnishes His Wages To Tune Of $1 Mil

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!

Nas' Home Sold In Public Auction After Bank Foreclosure!

Poor Nas!

The rapper, who is already facing serious tax debt, just had his 3,500 square foot, 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in Georgia foreclosed upon after he defaulted on his loan payments to SunTrust bank!

According to records, the house - which has a walk-in pool, hot tub, theater, gym, game room, and granite counter-tops - was originally purchased in 2004 for $585,000, but Nas only could pay off $78,000 before realizing he couldn't foot the rest of the bill!

As a result, the home went to the highest bidder at a public auction last month who only had to pay $348,500!

Ouch! That HAD to have hurt!

Sometimes you just have to learn the hard way that Uncle Sam always wins!
