It is not looking good at all for Nas, the divorce was ugly enough but now he is being charged after failing to pay more than $200,000 in spousal and child support fees. He was previously ordered to pay more than $49,000 per month in support to Kelis. The hearing for Nas’ contempt case will be held next month, which could potentially land the rapper in jail.
On a recently leaked track from Nas titled “Strong Will Continue,” Nas addressed his legal woes with Kelis.
“How in the h*ll am I supposed to stay comfy/ When I pay child support, alimony monthly,” he raps. Nas also touched on the rumors that he cheated on his wife in the same track. “So I’ve stuck with some married women so fine, cheating while their husband rushing on the 40-yard line/ Wonder if this is what my ex did the whole time.”
Fellow Def Jam label mate Method Man spoke out on Nas’ during a radio show
“Ladies come on, y’all know that’s some bullsh*t…let’s be real and sh*t, for real for real, all you did was f*ck your man. That money right there, a kid don’t need that much money to survive and sh*t. You trying to maintain your lifestyle. I wanna see the shoe on the other foot. That sh*t is ridiculous man because then you got a lot of chicks and that’s not all of them, but there are some chicks out there striving to get [that]…The court system is geared more towards the women than the men.”
It was previously reported that Nas was earning nearly $150,000 per month, while having over $70k in monthly expenses. Really 70k a month??? if that’s true he should be able to more than afford this but I have a feeling his income might not be as fruitful as people think.
