Kelis and son Knight took a stroll through Los Angeles recently. Knight is Kelis’ first child with ex-husband Nas.
Last week, the Los Angeles County Superior Court reportedly cut the financial support the MC was paying divorcee/singer Kelis by half, according to court documents rustled up by TMZ. The Queens native will be paying a bit over $5,000 a month in child support and $20,00 in spousal support.
It’s a pretty penny but not nearly as much when compared to what Nas was initially subject to hand over. The Distant Relatives rapper was originally ordered to pay an estimated amount of $500,000 per month in child and spousal support, in support of Kelis and Knight.
Elsewhere, Nas is rumored to sign with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music rooster, alongside artists like Pusha T, Mos Def, Common and Detroit upstart Big Sean.
The rapper also spoke about his reigning influence on the rap game some 17 years after the release of his 1994 debut Illmatic, which many deem a classic. West counts the veteran as an influence and Nas co-signed the Chicago MC and producer on his success as well.
“Man, you know, if that’s not happening then I didn’t do what I was supposed to do. I know what I did,” Nas said with confidence. “People like Kanye is brilliant, so when Kanye is out there doing his thing, he’s entertaining all audiences and he’s keeping it hip-hop at the same time. Nobody does that but him.”
