Mister Cee PSA for AIDS Healthcare Foundation

Mister Cee PSA for AIDS Healthcare Foundation

Mister Cee is still trying to play victim and make peace with his inter demons by doing a PSA for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

Two weeks ago Mister Cee was arrested for soliciting a male prostitute.  Later he claimed, during an interview, with New York’s radio station Hot 97 that he is not gay but has a sex addiction.

With all of this negative press he tries to turn it into a positive by making the below PSA.  Although his intention mean well he should help himself before he tries to help someone else.

IRS Garnishing All Of Nasir “Nas” Jones’ Royalities Due To $6M Tax Debt

IRS Garnishing All Of Nasir “Nas” Jones’ Royalities Due To $6M Tax Debt

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.
