Nas Fights Back in Promoter Kidnapping Case

(AllHipHop News) Queensbridge bred rapper Nas is asking a judge to dismiss a New Jersey promoter’s $10 million lawsuit.

The suit stems from the promoter being kidnapped in Angola for 50 days after Nas didn’t appear at a Luanda New Years Eve concert scheduled in December of 2011.

While Nas say that the dispute was already resolved out of court by paying back a $300,000 advance, the promoter wants $10 million for being beaten and threatened at gunpoint while kidnapped in Angola.

According to TMZ, Nas filed court documents earlier this week asserting the dispute was settled during the promoter’s kidnapping, which eventually came to the attention of the United States State Department.

As part of the agreement, Patrick Allocco agreed not to sue for the incident, that also resulted in his son Patrick Jr.’s alleged kidnapping by Angolan promoter Henrique “Riquhino” Miguel and his associates.

Nas is also asking for a dismissal of the suit due to the fact that the promoter agreed to be “human security” for the concert prior to Nas agreeing to perform.

The Illmatic rapper says he refused to show up to the concert after a breach of  contract on the Allocco’s behalf as plane tickets were botched and advance payments were late.

    So let me get this straight..Dude is more concerned with suing Nas for not showing up instead of asking for help in catching the folks who harmed him? Good luck getting anyone including Vanilla Ice to perform in Angola now. We could send him all the twitter rappers with horrible mixtapes who love link spamming. Actually that’s not a bad idea.
