A New Jersey father-and-son team of promoters held in Angola for 49 days after Nas failed to appear for a concert there last New Year's Eve are suing the rapper for $10 million in Manhattan federal court. Nas later returned his $300,000 fee, but the blame fell on Patrick Allocco, 52, and Patrick Jr., 22, of Morris Plains, whose company eventually went bankrupt. (New York Post)
At the time, Allocco told reporters that he was stuck in Angola and being held at gunpoint by a local "concert impresario" who put up the money for the concerts. Nas got a $300,000 advance and budding rapper Jamiah Jai, who was supposed to be the opening act, got $15,000. The court papers say Nas was in Miami to attend a New Year's Eve engagement party at the home of hoops star LeBron James. The lawsuit says after the shows were canceled, Allocco and his son were taken into custody by Angolan authorities who refused to let them leave the country until the money was returned. Nas and Jai did eventually repay the money. (New York Daily News)

Last March, the New York hip-hop vet spoke on his no-show and the kidnapping.

"I didn't want to touch on it because it seemed like he was in grave danger out there," Nas said in an interview. "Basically he was a promoter that I never worked with, and he wanted me to come to Africa for New Year's, which, for me, I thought, would be the best way to spend New Year's. ... The business wasn't handled. There was nothing sent to me, and there were no flights. ... By the time he did send money -- he did eventually send money to me -- but it was too late to go. I didn't even have a visa to get in the country. So that's canceled, the show's canceled." (RapFix)

DAMN..

    How would Nas be responsible for you not fulfilling your contractual obligations, cutting a side deal and the getting kidnapped from your lack of actions? I see this getting thrown out fairly quickly. Stop cutting side deals and send the artist their money and transportation details in advance smh..

    Seems like he would be responsible for something above and beyond the $300,000. I mean cancelling a concert is more than just refunding people's money I think.

    Can't really say who's at fault for cancelling but if Nas blew off a concert for a party, the way they make it sound,. he prolly end up paying.

    Plus he like givin' money away, look at Kelis.

    If the promoter did not feel his contractual obligations to the artist, then the artist can back out. The contract is voided and monies are returned. The way its sounds to me is they sent the money like 2 days before the event, without including the hotel/transportation itinerary that is requested by all artist. Nas is only responsible for his fee to be returned. But a white judge will more than likely try to stick it to Nas. Its really on the promoter.

    Even though nas takes a millions Ls it doesnt seem like this is his fault. I'm surprised nas can still make $300,000 for a show.

    Knowing Nas' luck though, the judge might award the promoter the 10 mil.

    Nas the Goat though

    Man, this some bullshit
    How many dudes have you really shot
    you rely on muscle memory no wonder you forgot
    how stupid can you be,I'm world class,who you teaching ass
    you got broad shoulders prom queen, carry that
    your top five lists can not be taken seriously (naw)
    when the reaper takes them all seriously (yeah)
    you should have died as one of your moms cramps
    fuck around get your skull turned into boot camp (ha)
    I am not the one who you want to have bothered
    your mom water shouldn't have broke if Moses was your father (hungh)
    I just stepped out the nexus to answer who next is
    what perplexes me is you all know I'm sicker,you disagree
    you iller?, make your move Nomad (damn)
    I got better reflexes than Body Builders
    demolition man, is he stallone,snipes,or the reem
    all you self-centered clowns can't stop the dream (stupid)

    The essence of my pubescence was stick to the lessons
    Keep the substance in the artwork solid,no need for stressin
    Shit, rap smoke and mirrors
    I aint dyin' off the second hand from the reflection of another man
    Not tryin' to hear who you think more clever, it whatever
    Dead at the same time, they toe-to-toe, neck-and-neck forever
    Dexterity is dexter, my pressure is impressing
    Buffalo Bill, but the victims doing the cross-dressing
    You nobodies get piled in the bathtub
    why you think it's called the rest room
    The brand is new, just call it a flesh-wound
    Word is born, who needs a flesh womb
    If I diss you, better just take that
    I coin phrases,Harvey Dent aint got the balls to flip that
    Sergeons need image awards if they save face
    Cave your chest in until Osama and Bruce Wayne could be roommates
    You gassed already, that's what happens when your hate unconditional
    Your favorite rappers is weak, but you virgins use to putting pussy on a pedestal
