Nas Owes $3.3 Million In Taxes

Bad news keeps coming in for Nas. Last week, he was ordered to pay ex-wife Kelis $200k in child support, now a 2009 $2.5 million tax lien has increased to $3.3 million. Allegedly, Nas pocketed $50k from his performance at Sundance, but blew the dough before his departure. Money is a bitch, ain’t it?

  • Damnnnnnnnnnnnnn…Come on Esco. Pay that shit bro. Ask Hov 4 a loan or somethin’ man. I’d hate to see u in jail like Ron Isley or escapin’ to other countries runnin from the law like Wesley Snipes.

    At the risk of sounding like a Nas stan, how much of this story is really true?

    This is a continuation of the story that TMZ reported last year, and in both cases they claim sources say he owes the IRS this amount of money, but havent really cited them or shown evidence. But knowing TMZ’s history, they normally are quick to show documents for these kinda situations. All we’ve heard and seen from the original TMZ link is just “sources say”. This is the same deal.

    Look Im not saying Nas isnt capable of doing some dumb shit like this, but at the same time how come all this shit is coming from the same news source who are good friends with Kelis people and Lawyer (TMZ). How much credit do we give an internet story? Also the numbers in all these stories just dont seem to add up. For him to be in debt of more tax than his contract, he would have spent years not submitting tax forms, if that was the case, this should not have been the first time

    Either way, I guess we’re gonna see next week at that hearing if he gets locked up. But so much of this story is suspect, I only wish TMZ would shed a bit more light to really take it seriously.

    damn Jay’s “takeover” verse just resonated when i read this.

    “you said u been in this 10, i been in this 5, smarten up Nas”


    Nas stay takin L’s, Damn homie.

  • Smartenupnas

    well, my moniker says it all!

  • JT

    Nas is an artist, Jay is a business man. Nas probably doesnt even own his own publishing, which is sad because he has created classics.

  • If Nas owes that much in Tax then he’s made a shitload of money recently. Those taxes can’t be from years ago or we would have already heard about it. Let’s see what the real story is….

  • Shawn

    ^Not exactly true. He’s in the highest percintile of income tax. And it may take about 2-3yrs for IRS to catch up and another 2-3 you can put them off before a lien..During this period you accure intrest and penaties. The actual amountay have been about $1.5… Not a lot for someone may gross about $2mill/yr
