Rapper Nas has pleaded not guilty to a criminal contempt charge for unpaid child and spousal support. According to reports, Nas owes more than $200,000 in child and spousal support to his estranged wife Kelis.
In March, Nas will have to attend a court hearing to show why he has been unable to pay the ordered support amounts. If he is found to be in contempt of court, he could face jail time.
Meanwhile, the rapper has vented out his frustrations in a new song titled, The Strong Will Continue. In a verse of the song, he raps about his son Knight and his child support woes:
“Twisted and mangled, sort of like Bruce Lee life, cursed with his son Brandon. If that’s you and me Knight, I pray our fates greater. How in the hell am I supposed to stay comfy, when I pay child support, alimony monthly (source).”
