Nas Speaks Out On Promoter's Kidnapping In Angola "He Was In Some Crazy Danger In Africa, So He Threw Me Under The Bus" [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Nas is opening up about American concert promoter Patrick Allocco and his 22-year old son. As we preciously reported, both Alloco's were kidnapped by a concert promoter in Angola when Nas didn't show up for a concert on New Years Eve.


"Basically he was a promoter that I never worked with, and he wanted me to come to Africa for New Year's, which, for me, I thought, would be the best way to spend New Year's. ... The business wasn't handled. There was nothing sent to me, and there were no flights," Nas told MTV's RapFix Live. "By the time he did send money — he did eventually send money to me — but it was too late to go. I didn't even have a visa to get in the country. So that's canceled, the show's canceled."


The father and son were allowed to stay in a hotel, but had their passports taken so they couldn't travel until local promoter Henrique "Riquhino" Miguel was paid the money he advanced to Nas and opening act Jemiah Jai.

 

Miguel had his bodyguards kidnap the Allocos when he realized neither Nas or Jai weren't coming. The American Embassy had them placed in the hotel. Alloco and his son did make it home safely eventually after Nas repaid the $300,000 he had received. Alloco is still considering a lawsuit against Nas after having to spend 49 days trapped in Angolo.

"Nothing could be further from the truth," Allocco said of Nas' version of the story. "Nas put us in harm's way by not showing up and put my son and I at physical harm and at risk by his inaction to fly to Angola."


Nas thinks Alloco is simply using him as a scapegoat.


"He was in some crazy danger In Africa," Nas said. "So he threw me under the bus."
