Nigerian Rapper and Chocolate City Boss, M.I Abaga has dragged Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend and American rapper, Nas to court over claims that Nas didn’t deliver the verse he was paid a huge sum of N18million for.
M.I dragged Nas to New York State Supreme Court, accusing him and Mass Appeal Records’ Ronnie Goodman, of duping Chocolate City after they had paid the rapper $50,000 (about N18million) for the verse.
According to the lawsuit, in 2013, Nas and Goodman entered an agreement to contribute a verse to a track from M.I. The details of the deal were that Nas was supposed 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.
According to reports, Nas went on to deliver a verse but it didn’t mention any of the subject matter Chocolate City had asked for.The Nigerian label requested that the Queens rapper to re-record the verse, and three year later, it hasn’t happened despite them delivering the $50,000 payment.
