NAS LANDS IN FEDERAL COURT AFTER BEING SUED OVER INSTAGRAM POST

Nas has landed in federal court. The rap icon is being sued over posting a throwback photo on social media.

Celebrity photographer Al Pereira is dragging Nasir Jones to court over a shot he posted to his Instagram that featured him and the late Tupac Shakur. Radar reports the lawsuit was filed in California on February 2nd, and the iconic photo shows the two together at Club Amazon in New York on July 23, 1993.

Periera republished the photo in 2017 and registered for a copyright, and then noticed in 2020 Nas put the photo online without permission or licensing the work. He claims the rapper profited from the work and also used it to increase his social media stats.

The lawsuit also alleges his post made the photo’s value decrease. Pereira is seeking unspecified damages plus an injunction against the music legend from using his work in the future.
