Nas reportedly owes over $6 million in unpaid taxes
The rapper is said to have three outstanding liens against him, one from October 2009 for $2,584,236, another from February 2010 for $3,365,671 while the latest one for $514,298 was filed earlier this month.
According to the Detroit News newspaper, Nas also owes $3,860 in fees on his New York apartment.
Nas has been experiencing financial problems for a while and last year he had to sign a payment plan to cover ex-wife Kelis` mortgage.
The `I Can` hitmaker - who has an 18-month-old son, Knight, with Kelis - had fallen behind on payments so had to shell out double what he was originally ordered to pay to make up for the money owed.
Nas - real name Nasir Jones - was said to be in $300,000 debt to the `Milkshake` singer and was believed that $52,989.22 of the outstanding monies related to the mortgage.
So he was ordered to pay $14,229.61 a month until he brought the arrears up-to-date.
As well as having to pay her mortgage, Nas was also ordered to pay Kelis $50,000 a month in spousal and child support but because of his money problems a judge recently slashed it to $25,000 a month.
The couple legally split last May, although they called time on their marriage in April 2009 while Kelis was pregnant with Knight.
The `Acapella` singer cited irreconcilable differences for the reason behind their divorce, although no exact reason for the split has ever been given.
