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.

It's nice to see he's staying out of trouble!

R. Kelly returned to Chicago this weekend after his third trip to Africa this year!

"Visiting Africa is always exciting and inspiring for me, both musically and personally," he said. "Even though I hate flying, I'm always willing to get on an airplane if the destination is Africa."

The singer performed in front of President Jose Eduardo dos Santos of Angola during a benefit concert in Luanda for the Special Olympics. He even serenaded the leader to celebrate his 68th birthday.

Kelly is even returning to Africa in December to perform in several other countries.

Tired of the States, honey?! Just make sure to keep your nose clean!
