Nas Owes $6 Million In Taxes

Seems like Nasir just can’t catch a break. We all know the situation between him and his ex-wife Kelis, but he recently has been hit with another tax lien. The Detroit News reports that God’s Son owes the Internal Revenue Service a hefty $6M in taxes for properties in New York and Georgia.

    IRS feat. Nas – You owe me

    Smarten up Nas…he must be trying to get his Wesley Snipes on.

  • Wow!

    He Fell Off! What Up Jigga!

    Dam.. Nas is that dude and everything but he stay taking L’s..

    what a dumb nigger. what else is new.

    Damn….I really think Nas needs an intervention at this point…It’s like he battled Jigga, mopped the floor with him, put out a classic solo album in Stillmatic…and afterwards that’s when the downfall began! Sometimes I wonder if Nas got overly righteous…he just doesn’t seem like the same Intelligent Street Brother that we all grew to love & admire, ever since Stillmatic I just don’t get the same edge and steelo from Nas anymore. He needs an intervention and dig back into his original music roots! This Distant Relatives save Africa and the world stuff is a good cause and all…but he clearly isn’t taking care of his OWN B.I.!!! I would expect an incredible album out of him with all the producers fans really want to hear him rock with..

    I don’t buy this. I’m not sure how reputable The Detroit News is but it’s D-town So..
    The Interal Revenue is based on income. Not Property taxes. And no municipality will let that kind of tax burden occur before they siezed the property.
    And to owe $6Mill NAS would have had to gross an unreal amount of coin.. I doubt if NAS has mad $30Mill over the last decade. And that’s a conservative guess.
    He may owe coin, but not $6Mil.. He ain’t getting Google Paper..
    And where is the public record? IRS and Muncipal Tax leins have to be mabe public.

  • assasin9

    does the IRS just leak info like this ? how are the business of these celebrities just getting put out like that by the week

  • GUARE

    i know i can.. be what i wanna be.. if i work hard at it.. ill be where i wanna be .. untill they come knockin for that six mill.. shit done change.. uncle sam dont play.. damn they just wait and wait.. till the worst possbile time.. and they come up knocking.. i bet he drop them albums now

  • QUEENZ

    I’ll pray for the big homie, he’s human like everyone else. Hopefully he can see his way through all of this mess. Besides, how the hell does The Detroit News get a hold of something like this? how accurate is this. In any case, I hope he gets through it all.

  • Shawn

    @assassin9… It’s a matter of public record. Just like when you buy a home

  • blaqscorpio

    Smarten up Nas! HA

  • Shawn

    And even if that amount is accurate… He’ll hire an attorney for $30K go in and negotiate that down paying 30 cent on the dollar. Even at $6Mil hes a small fish. Companies and people owe tens of millions.

  • KingWonder

    STOP TRYNA LIVE LIKE THE WHITE FOLKS AND DO YOU!!!!
    NO NEED FOR 7 HOMES IN EVERY STATE AND SHIIT!
    NAS IS STILL THA ILLEST THO! FELL OF? I THINK FANS FELL OFF FOR NOT LIKING GOOD MUSIC NOWADAYS LOL

  • roger

    yo wheres that 50 cent black magic post did they take it off?

  • D

    Give the guy a break. It’s his problem so he’ll have to handle that by himself. How would you feel if someone was putting all your business out in the media?

  • Black Shady

    ah shit … @blaqscorpio wrote it before me hahaha!

    nas please make sure you take care of your bis before you loss everythang that is important to u….noif said thou…

  • Charli

    Jay needs to loan that man some money! Cmon Hov! Haha

  • Nina

    @ Shawn. Not exactly. This is years and years of undeclared income, interests and late fees. He probably gets paid “under the table” and doesn’t declare the income that’s how a lot of entertainers get caught up by the IRS. The only option I can see is bankruptcy.

    I figured he was having financial problems when he wasn’t paying his ex alimony or child support, but I had no idea his shit was this out of control. This looks like Dame all over again.

  • money mitch

    @roger

    50 called up yn and verbally smacked him up like q

    I remember seeing an interview where 50 was like “whats his name, oh yeah elliot, i dont like him.”

  • Shawn

    @ Word.. I think he owe, but $6Mil?? And there’s a cap on the interest and/or penalties. I can’t believe this.. And How is it that with all the tabloids in NYC it being the center of media.. How the fuck a Detroit blog/”newpaper” break this?
    I think this is embellished.

  • Shawn

    @ Nina he’s defiantly filing Chap 11
    But what you’re explaining, which I’m sure occured, that would constitue tax evasion, this seems like failure to pay.. And there are caps, you can’t just get intrest and penalties forever.
    That’s what got Ron Isley in trouble, well that and cashing a dead brothers checks..
    But you right, whateve assets he has he’ll need to get rid of.. Homie will be living out the Nike Shoe Box for a few yrs.

    YN is loving this

  • Killa Kellz

    thats some fuckin bull shit. first off we all know Kelis has millions of dollars and doesnt need 50 grand every month for their kid. Hes a father and he would obviously take care of his child regardless of the divorce or the money. I dont really know a lot about this whole situation with this 6 million but he’s one of the greatest MCs and song writers of all time and he really doesn’t deserve all of this heat everyone’s been putting on him

  • Soulja Boy might just be the best to ever do it

    I guess kelis have great lawyer? Atleast soulja boy is smart with his money! Sorry nas you LOSE!!

  • Chris

    We always hear about him supposedly owing the IRS millions in taxes and yet he aint gone to jail yet for it.

  • G’Allah

    No this is inaccurate. The IRS does not pursue property tax. The IRS goes after income, coopoerate, estate, and payroll tax. Property tax is state and local not federal. This is some made up BS y’all.

  • Citylivin’

    YN is gonna have a field day with this……..might just throw in a little T.I. slander just for the hell of it.

  • Nina

    The original article doesn’t mention anything about property tax, the writer of this article wrote that. The article only says the IRS has placed liens against his home in GA and his condo in Queens has a lien placed against it due to unpaid fees and expenses.

    I don’t know if it’s accurate or not, but it’s all public record, so it’s not hard to find if you care enough to search. Tons of celebrities/regular people owe billions in taxes with no legal action being taken. I think it takes more than just not paying to be convicted of tax evasion.

  • @ssholes

    and where is Jay-Z (fellow Black Republican even thought they voted Democratic) for Nas’ help? Sounds like Nasty Nas should sign to Shady Records to get his career back on track. Maybe he’ll sell more than 50k for an album.

  • Android@NASLOST!.COM

    Nasir Jones is going to jail!!! 6 milli!

    NAS LOST!!!

    This coming, from a card carrying stan.

  • Chris

    Relax my dudes, the gawd aint gone to jail for this yet and its been like this for a year

    As long as TI, Gucci Mane, Charles Hamilton, Yung Berg, Mel Gibson, Dan Gilbert, Damon Dash, Tiger Woods are still around with their problems, Nas aint the king of L’s yet…….
