Nas Hit With $10 Million Lawsuit Over African Kidnapping

An American concert promoter is suing Nas for $10 million claiming that he was kidnapped and held captive for 50 days as a result of the Queens rapper failing to perform at a scheduled New Year’s Eve concert.

The news broke back in March when Patrick Allocca claimed he was abducted and held for ransom by angry Angolan promoters who wanted their money back after Esco failed to show for a gig he was allegedly already paid for. Nas claimed the show suffered from planning issues from the beginning and Alloccoa “threw [him] under the bus” after finding himself in a life threatening situation.

According to TMZ, Allocca filed a lawsuit against Nas in Federal court on Friday claiming that he suffered psychologically, physically, and financially over the nearly two months he was held captive. $10 million is the asking price.
