It is quite unfortunate- Rapper, M. I describes legal battle with Hip hop artiste, NAS
By Patricia Uyeh,
You recall that Nigerian rapper, Jude Abaga aka M.I and his music label embarked on a legal war with American hip-hop artiste, NAS for a breach of contract.
M.I while speaking with Entertainment News on Channels TV confirmed the news, describing it as “unfortunate.”
According to the ‘Chairman’ crooner, he paid a huge sum for a verse that was never delivered. He added that he had no idea of how the information that he’s suing NAS went viral because it was never his intention, but he admits it is true that NAS failed to deliver his part of the bargain, hence his move to take him to court.
M. I said:
“We paid a good amount of money to get a verse. In technical terms, we send us an MP3 that merged verse and the beat.
“So what we’ll need is to get a verse that is called a Stem file, so we can use it and we never got that. And we’ve tried and tried and tried to reach out to them, so let the laws handle their thing
“NAS is one of the greatest of all time. It’s sort of unfortunate but it is what it is”
