Daddy & Daughter Time
As many have learned, fame does not excuse anyone from getting teased. Hip-hop veteran Nas is learning this lesson, if he didn’t already know it, after his daughter accidentally made him the end of a bad joke.
The 23-year-old may think twice before she shares her quality-time-with-dad moments with her followers again.
Destiny Jones and her famous father were hanging out poolside when she decided to snap a picture of her and Nas’ feet as they laid on cozy-looking beach chairs. What she seemingly didn’t realize was that her dad’s feet were pure comedy material.
“Shout out to the PETTY-azz RONI that sent me this picture of #Nas’ feet, saying it looks like his foot is giving the middle finger,” Tea Tenders’ captioned their Instagram post of the photo. It took no time for the jokes to roll in, as fans had a field day picking with the 44-year-old’s toes.
“Clearly he was shot in his toe!” one commenter wrote. “He does NOT get a pass! He’s to rich for that ! Lol” said another.
“Nah b , I refuse to believe Mad got feet that look like everyone was amputated except the 1 giving me a middle finger!!!Noo,” a fan said. “Let me see the other foot…maybe this one just the bad one lol,” joked another.
“Project feet! You know nobody could fit their shoes in the projects! When n***as said ‘Knuckle Up!’ this is what they meant,” a fan commented. “But these are some money Makin project feet now.”
“Money Makin’ Project Feet”
“Money makin’ project feet” they are, as Nas has reportedly cashed out on a very lucrative investment. Nas is said to be an early investor in Ring, a video doorbell company.
After Amazon bought the company for over one billion dollars in February of this year, WeBuyBlack.com came forward with news that the “The World Is Yours” artist made about $40 mill. It is now estimated that Nas’ net worth is within the range of $17 to $52 million.
Just before he made millions, Nas made a huge payment on his tax tab. He had been sparring with the IRS over unpaid taxes since 2009 over bills that date back to 2006. With interest and late fees, his debt to Uncle Sam had ballooned over seven figures.
However, TheJasmineBRAND reported that the rapper finally shelled out the $276,464.80 he owed to the Georgia Department of Revenue.
DMX should be a cautionary tale for all rappers on how not to handle the IRS. In November of 2017, Darkman X pled guilty to tax evasion. His case was a little worse than Nas because he simply wasn’t claiming his income from royalties and performances, opting to use cash and other people’s bank accounts to hold his money instead.
After his court appearance, Joon H. Kim of the New York Attorneys’ office told ABC, “Today, Earl Simmons admitted to systematically cheating on his taxes. By insisting to be paid in cash whenever possible and having royalty payments diverted to the accounts of financial surrogates, Simmons concealed hundreds of thousands of dollars of income from the IRS.”
“Simmons made a choice between ‘Right or Wrong,’ and did the right thing, admitting his guilt, and agreeing to pay his tax liabilities,” he said. “No matter who you are or whatever fame you may have achieved, the law applies equally to all, and no one is exempt from the shared obligation to pay our taxes.”
