how about using some logic, you do realize Nas is in the top 10 for most hip hop albums sold all time right?
1. No he's not , and if you're referencing the same source I think you're referencing then I advise you to just shuddup right now and exit the thread while you're ahead because there's so many errors in that "list" that I saw a while back putting Nas at #9 in the Top 10 highest selling that you'd be embarrassed to even cite such bullshyt. Nas is somewhere in the Top 20 with around 10 mill sold give or take. Try to argue this and I'll easily prove you wrong.
2. Out of all the things you can name that a rapper makes money off you want to cite album sales as the logic behind how Nas is worth 200 million ?? 10 million sold and he's worth 200 million ?? Hammer sold more than Nas and he was only worth 30 million in his prime. 50 sold more than Nas and has done movies, endorsements, a crazy amount of deals, and tours non-stop and Forbes doesn't even have him at 200 mill currently. Albums sales are the lowest source of income for an artist. Eminem probably hasn't even seen $100 mill off just album sales.
Let's say Nas got a really good rate on each album sold his whole career like $1 per album. So 10 million sold = $10 million, and he owes the IRS 6 million currently. That's like $4 million left. So that leaves $196 million left, where did he get that from ? Touring? Who the phuck do you think he is ?? U2 ?? WTF are you smoking ???
Damn.. so nice had to be posted twice.
Nas stans jumping to co-sign shyt without even doing their research. It's okay to enjoy his music for what it is, but dont believe everything that comes out of his mouth, especially about finances.
This foo owes the IRS 6 million, do you really think they'd have to go to his label and snatch his residuals if his net worth was 200 mill ??
