Nas and Uncle Sam are butting heads. Looks like Uncle Sam might win this one…
According to TMZ:
The next time you buy a Nas album, you’re really just handing your money over to the government — because the rapper’s delinquent tax filings have caused Uncle Sam to begin garnishing his wages … TMZ has learned. As TMZ first reported, Nas is in tax debt up to his eyeballs … if his eyeballs were $6,000,000 tall.
So the government has finally tired of waiting for Nas to pay up, so they filed documents in the state of Georgia to have his wages garnished — via the music publishing organizations BMI and ASCAP — until the debt is paid off.
So if you like Nas, but hate the government … perhaps you’ll want to find an alternative way to listen to his music.
