Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Nas Moving to Africa After the Release of "Life Is Good"?

According to a source, Nas may be chucking up the deuces to the United States and leaving for the greener pastures of Africa! A Nas insider has revealed that Nas is considering moving out of the United States in order to avoid paying the government $6.5 million in owed back taxes. Below is what the source is saying:

"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."

"Life's a b*tch and then you die, cause you never know when you're going to go".

Poor Nas.

(But leaving for Africa did work for him and T-Boz in "Belly", so who knows?)
