Nas has been in the news lately due to his financial situation. The Rapper reportedly owes the government 6 million dollars in taxes. Nasir finally came clean about the situation and says despite the “bill” he has no regrets.
You’ve been in the news recently because of an outstanding $6,000,000 tax bill. Do you wish you’d been more business-minded in your career? No, I don’t have any regrets. The way we live is no regrets. Everything is a learning experience and your mistakes, when you go back to look at them, are just moments of being human. Those are my reference points. So I go back to those points. And I love those points when I didn’t do well because that meant I was just a human.

The Government aint playing ’bout their money. Reportedly concert promoter Live Nation was forced to withhold fully paying Nas for his shows. TMZ reports:
According to court docs, the GDR obtained an order commanding Live Nation — the promo company behind Nas’ tour with Lauryn Hill — to garnish his wages until the dept is satisfied. The tour is currently underway, and Nas– who’s also on the hook for millions in unpaid taxes to the federal government — is sure to make a boatload of money. A rep for Nas tells us the matter has recently been settled — but the GDR insists the case is still open and they’re trying to collect. Pay your taxes, people.
