Federal Tax Lien

Against Nas

It Was Written

10/19/2009 1:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

isn't the only person trying to get money from Nas -- turns out Uncle Sam is too!

TMZ has obtained a federal tax lien filed last month against Nas for a whopping $2,584,206.31. Looks like Nas didn't pay his taxes in 2006 and 2007.

Nas is currently involved in a bitter divorce battle with Kelis. Looks like she'll have to wait in line.

IN REPLY TO #15 named.... Who are you.

Who is this looser? There must be a whole other universe out there that I am happy to say I am unaware of.
First of all let me start out by asking, who are you? ( Who are you.)

Tens of millions of people know who Nas is worldwide.
How many people know you maybe six or seven including the dog and the family cat.

And if it is true that Nas owes the Feds $2,584,206.31 for two years of none payment.
This would indicate that he grossed at least six million dollars within those two years.
More money than you and 85% of the entire American population will ever touch, within an entire lifetime.

So if this makes him a loser as you say.
Then this makes you even less than a loser.
And since there is no word in the English vocabulary for less than a loser.
Than I'll just have to improvise and call you garbage.
Garbage that should be thrown out with yesterday's trash, undeserving of a proper burial, just a plain old garbage dump will suffice.

However don't feel too sad you will be in good company along with approximately 200 million other Americans.
And keep in mind there are just slightly over 300,000,000 Americans in the U.S. (Nuff Said)

I must leave you now, you see I am in training to compete in a triathlon. So I run between 18 to 22 miles a day, every day in the heat of Miami.
Now you may ask what it is I do for a living that allows me to indulge myself in such extraordinary yet time consuming adventures.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I made my first $1,000,000 at the tender age of 20. I am considerably older now, so you do the math, that is of course if you can add.
And no if you're wondering, I owe the government not a dime.
As a matter of fact the government may very well indeed owe me.

Now how's is that for a WINNER,
LOSER or better yet, you HUMAN GARBAGE.

Again (Nuff said,) got to get my running shoes on.
Unlike most Americans, I have many great things still to accomplish....ARTOFWAR

You don't know who the person is yet you have an opinion on whether he's a looser or not and the time to post a statement. Mayne, you are soo much more pathetic than any loser than has ever existed. Even more pathetic than any fictional looser created in films or story books. No wonder you are happy. You live in ignorant bliss. lol
