Chief Keef’s career has been a series of missteps ever since “Don’t Like” became a hit. The latest folly is that the Chicago rapper’s own label is suing his manager, and a number of notable producers, for breach of contract.
“Since May 2015, Chief Keef has breached the Agreement by arbitrarily and capriciously recording, writing, selling merchandise and performing outside of the Agreement,” the lawsuit reads.
The rapper’s Glo Gang manager, Idris “Peeda Pan” Abdul Wahid, as well as producers Zaytoven, Metro Boomin’, Sonny Digital and DJ Holiday are cited in the suit for their contributions to Chief Keef’s recently released projects, Finally Rollin’ 2 (which dropped in November) and Nobody 2, released earlier this month.
FilmOn, which has “suspended” Chief, is the labeling doing the suing. According to it’s founder, Alki David, Chief Keef isn’t to blame.
“FilmOn Music is not suing Keef because we do not believe in suing talent,” Akil told Billboard. “We believe Keef has once again mislead by his management. We have filed a lawsuit against his management company plus all the vendors and producers who have knowingly interfered with his 360 Recording Contract with FilmOn Music.”
Worth noting, Chief Keef named his newborn son after the label for promotion. Struggle rappers stay losing.
