A Nigerian music record label, Chocolate City has sued Nigeria-US rapper, NAS for not keeping to his promise as he did not provide a verse to MI Abaga after he had been the label.

The lawsuit was filled in New York State Supreme Court last week. The deal was made back in 2013 where they both agreed that NAS will drop a verse on one of M.I's tracks, which he eventually did but didn't follow M.I's instructions.

According to the lawsuit, content of the verse to be produced be by NAS was supposed to contain "M.I, Chocolate City, Nigeria, Queens, New York- Nas' hometown, Mandela, Trayton Martin and the struggles of Africans and African Americans", but NAS recorded his verse without following this step after collecting an advance payment of $45,000 and extra $5,000 given to Goodman, his partner who stood as NAS' agent. This law suit is came up after four years that it happened.
