Henry County, Georgia – Nasir Jones won’t be Wesley Sniped by the tax man anytime soon. After dealing with reports that he was severely in the red with the IRS for most of this decade, the 43-year-old Hip Hop legend bossed up and shelled out more than $3.5 million for Uncle Sam to remove him from the “you’re-going-to-jail” list.
In March of 2016, it was reported that Nas was hit with a $145,000 tax lien, bringing his grand receipt to more than $6 million in unpaid taxes. According to documents obtained by Bossip, Nas (quietly) paid the aforementioned $3.5 million sum in December 2016 to settle most of the score. However, the records show that he still owes the state of Georgia nearly $426,000 stemming from his 2007 earnings, which includes “a nearly $60,000 penalty, more than $57,000 in interest and a nearly $71,000 collection fee.”
With an album admittingly completed and an upcoming performance at Rolling Stone’s Big Game Bash in Houston for Super Bowl LI, Nas will have plenty of opportunities in 2017 to keep the revenue stream flowing.
