Rapper Nas Ordered To Pay Up, Earnings Garnished by IRS

Fame comes with a price and Nas is in that line of celebrities who are finding out the hard way. The IRS will always get what you owe them. The State of Georgia has just got the go ahead to garnish $1,000,000 of the rapper’s earnings. This is all in order to satisfy a tax debt of $1,083,435. It is reported that Nas owes for four years’ worth of taxes (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010).

The Georgia Department of Revenue has gotten an order that will force the promo company, Live Nation, to garnish Nas’s wages until he completely satisfies the debt. Nas is currently touring with Lauryn Hill. An ironic pairing of the two, as Ms. Hill is also in trouble with the IRS.

Nas’s reps are saying that the matter has been settled but GDR reps are saying that Nas still owes. Nas is in a long line of African American celebrities that can’t seem to hold the finances together. Just recently, Gary Dourdan , Swizz Beatz, and Toni Braxton have experienced financial woes. It could be worse. At least Nas has a chance to pay his taxes back instead of being threatened with jail time. GDR is banking on Nas, literally.

  1. Yes! Finally someone writes about cpuz.

  2. The IRS does not discriminate.

  3. I truly believe that we shouldn’t have to pay taxes for the same amount of time we were enslaved unless reparations supercedes that. Sounds extreme but our tax dollars are only getting us subpar services from most of the people are tax dollars support (fire, police, elected officials, prisons, etc.). Highest unemployment, most is jail, slow police response (when we’re the victim), broken political promises, prisons that don’t rehabilitate (but recycle), and the list goes on. But, unlike our forefathers, we won’t organize and do ish so things will continue to be 2nd class to us because we’ve accepted this role/place.

  4. Funny how they always come for the little people yet the big corporations get off scott free….

  5. I'm sure there is more to the story on this matter seeing that its primarily the state of the Georgia and Branch doing this action. Maybe GA has stricter rules on paying taxes maybe it has something to do with his marraige if he had moved. Nas to me doesn't seem to be the type not take care of his responsibilities then again maybe not. We should closely observe these news feeds untli we get more info and pass any judgement.

  9. Sounds about right to me, No business sense, no economic sense, no understanding of how the system works. If you make money you have to give some back, to take care, you know who!

    • but he got more then you ever had..Sounds about right to me, No business sense, no economic sense, no understanding of how the system works..He do give to who he want???

    • He should want to give it up to the IRS, before he finds his self locked up for 6 years. FYI, I made some nice investments years ago, and do just fine.
