We reported in June 2009 that Nas was to pay his ex-wife Kelis cash in abundance as a result of their divorce. It turns out that the judge in charge of the case ordered Nasir to pay about $50,000 total monthly — $40,000 to Kelis and $10,000 to their newly born son. But according to reports from HipHopDX, a judge in Los Angeles County Superior Court heard the monetary woes of Nas with an open mind. As such, the rapper’s payments to Kelis and their son was cut exactly in half to $25,000 total each month. This is some damn good for Nas, especially after all the label bullshit surrounding his request to release another Lost Tapes compilation.
