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:
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!
We feel it in our fingers, we feel it in our toes…
The retailer finally unveiled the ads featuring Michael J. Fox, his wifey Tracy Pollan, Jack Huston and his dog Orso, Nas and his dad Olu Dara, Aubrey Plaza and just one look at the vibrant photos will warm the cockles of your heart.

To help spread it all around, the retailer's tapped famous faces like Michael J. Fox and his wife, Tracy Pollan, to appear in the Love Comes in Every Color-themed ad.
Nas and his blues musician pops, Olu Dara will get lovey dovey in a Fatherly Love tidbit, while Boardwalk Empire actor, Jack Huston cuddles up to his doggy, Orso, in an aptly titled Puppy Love ad.
Actress Nathalie Love, director Gia Coppola and granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola will display Best Friend Love, and NBC's The New Normal will exhibit Modern Love.
And last but most certainly not least, Parks and Recreation actress, Aubrey Plaza will celebrate her Self Love.
With all the love in the air, we would think Gap was getting ready for Valentine's Day, but nothing beats the holidays like feeling joyous and being around the people you adore.

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!

Darling Nas, you sweet thing!
Nas may be a thought provoking artist in general, but the iconic rapper had some thoughts of his own last Monday evening (October 1st) when he got intimate with his audience during a small London show!
While spitting the somber tune Bye Bye Baby — a song supposedly written about his Milkshake making ex-wife Kelis — Nas expressed how he still wants to have sex with his ex, even if it's only for one, last time!
Nas expressed to the crowd:
