NAS FACING LAWSUIT OVER ‘ILLMATIC’ ROYALTIES FROM PETE ROCK

It seems like Nas will be facing some legal trouble. The New York rapper is reportedly going to be sued by a fellow hip-hop veteran.

The lawsuit will come over royalty issues, and it will come from Pete Rock. The groundbreaking producer says Nasir Jones hasn’t paid him a penny in royalties for his work on legendary album Illmatic.

Page Six reports he’s tired of not getting what’s owed to him, and is thus gearing up to sue Nas. His team is preparing a lawsuit that will be filed this month.

His attorneys further claim that Nas signed a contract that would allow Pete Rock a portion of the profits from classic track “The World Is Yours,” a value now floating around millions of dollars. Nasir hasn’t responded yet, so what happens with the matter will only be found out when the court papers are officially submitted.
