Is life imitating art? Is Nas turning into Sincere from Belly? Sources say he’s moving to Africa after the release of his next album, Life is Good.
A source close to Nas recently confirmed the rumors that he will be moving out of the United States and relocating to Africa, shortly after his newest album Life Is Good, is released. It’s no secret that Nas has been having some major difficulties with the government regarding his negation to pay his taxes appropriately. The source claims his decision is in his best, all around interest to ensure that he’ll be living good without having to deal with government stress for the next decade.
The source stated:
“Basically Nas’ decision is more of a business move than anything else. His lawyer gave him two options: ‘Let the government take every dollar you make for the next 4-8 years or extradite yourself to a country where they can’t touch your earned income.’ Nas been talking about moving out the U.S. for years anyway so he was like, ‘F*ck it. Let’s drop the album and I’m out.’ Africa’s his escape from the debt problems.”
I’m lilD, and that’s the Word Eye Heard. I guess he’ll send his two children a postcard…?
