Young Jeezy, Polow Da Don, Jazze Pha Accused Of Not Paying Studio Fees
While their songs continue to grow more and more popular, a number of artists in Atlanta are accused of owing thousands of dollars in unpaid fees for some of their biggest hits.
According to CBS Atlanta, recording engineer Tony Terrebonne has confirmed that producer Polow Da Don owes more than $20,000 in unpaid studio services and attorneys fees.
Terrebonne said $8,0000 of that is for his work on the Chris Brown hit “Forever” and he’s owed an additional $480 for Usher’s “Love In The Club.”
According to Terrebone this isn’t his first issue with the Zone 4 head who previously owed him $50,000 causing him to move in with his parents and sell his car to make up for the loss.
He tells CBS,
“It’s a lot of hard work, I’ll be up for three days straight and I won’t get paid for it. It’s insane.”
In addition to Da Don, Young Jeezy and Producer Jazze Pha are also reportedly guilty of not making payments.
In addition to Terrebone, Recording engineer and owner of Atlanta’s 11st Street Studio Josh Butler told CBS he was still waiting on $20,000 from Young Jeezy while Zac Recording owner Jim Zumpano told CBS that he’s still waiting on payment from Jazze Pha.
Since CBS published their story, Butler received $20,000 from Young Jeezy’s YJ Entertainment and Zumpano received about $2,000 from TSG Financial Management who represents Jazze Pha.
