In yet another bizarre development in the world of Nas, the legendary rapper is being sued by concert promoter Patrick Allocco for allegedly being responsible for his “kidnapping” in Angola back in December of 2011.

The hip-hop icon was supposed to perform in Angola that month, but backed out, costing Allocco roughly $300,000 in fees.

TMZ reports that although Nas eventually paid back the money in full, Allocco was held captive by “Angolan authorities” for 50 days until the cost of the cancelled shows was covered.

“We are relieved that this nightmare is over and are looking forward to coming home to our family and friends who have supported us with their prayers and optimism during this ordeal,” a rep for Allocco told TMZ.

Now the concert promoter is holding the Life Is Good rapper responsible for his reportedly being beaten and threatened at gunpoint.
