Nigerian rapper, M.I Abaga and his record label, Chocolate City have filed a lawsuit against Queenbridge legend, Nasir Jones better known as Nas for not delivering his part in a musical deal.
In the lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court, Nas and Mass Appeal Records’ Ronnie Goodman are accused of swindling Chocolate City of $50, 000 they had paid the rapper for a verse, but he did not deliver as agreed.
According to the lawsuit, in 2013, Nas and Goodman had entered an agreement to contribute a verse to a track from M.I. The deal entails Nas to mention”M.I, Chocolate City, Nigeria, Queens, New York—NAS’s hometown—, Mandela, Trayvon Martin, and the struggles of Africans and African Americans” in his verse.
The verse was, however, delivered but Nas didn’t mention any of the subject matter Chocolate City requested for.
The Nigerian label requested the Queens rapper to re-record the verse,but three years on, it hasn’t happened, hence the reason for the sue.
