    Don't mess with the IRS.

    Rapper Nas is learning that expensive lesson, as his wages have been garnished and all of his royalties from record sales will not go to his pocket or bank account but directly to the IRS to pay off his massive $6 million tax bill.

    According to TMZ, Nas has failed to settle the outstanding amount and IRS lawyers recently filed legal papers in a Georgia court requesting to garnish his wages from BMI and ASCAP until his balance with the IRS hits zero.

    Ouch.
