Rapper Nas

Georgia Pad Foreclosed

... Sold At Auction

EXCLUSIVE

1014_nas_tmzLife's a bitch ... Nas sang it and now he's living it ... because besides being knee deep in tax debt, TMZ has learned the rapper just lost his Georgia crib to foreclosure. 

According to official records, Nas purchased the 2-bedroom, 3-bath pad back in 2004 for $585,000 ... but according to SunTrust bank (which issued him the loan) ... Nas couldn't foot the bill and defaulted on the payments, still owing $507,000.

SunTrust recently foreclosed on the property and then sold it to the highest bidder at public auction last month for $348,500 ... WAY LESS than the rapper paid eight years ago.

It's a steal for the new owner -- the house is over 3,500 square feet with a walk-in pool and hot tub ... granite counter-tops ... custom theater ... gym and game room.

I'm suprised TMZ knows a song from Illmatic, considering Harvey couldn't even name who made the album.

I think the living room looks tacky. Otherwise, it is a really nice house. It sounds like the new buyer got a steal if the other properties held their values.

What? A rapper going broke? No S**t! Most rappers only have a room temperature I.Q. with no financial wisdom at all. Even the more successful rappers like Lil Wayne still need help tying their shoes.

A rapper with a suspended license, multiple babies and baby mommas he doesn't support and an unpaid tax bill? Can we just file this under the "sun sets in the west" category?
