It’s becoming more common now for rappers to want to get out of their contract.
Bobby Shmurda is the latest artist to put his record label on blast. The Brooklyn rapper took to social media on Thursday (February 10) and explained why he hasn’t released new music. In a since deleted post, Bobby said,
“I got a 70-year-old lady running my label. I love her dearly but doesn’t want to let me go at alllllllllll no matter what I do. I’ve been signed to them since I was 19 I did six years in jail trying to get off this label before I came home.” He ended with,
“You name one person in the industry a label keeps a sign in jail for six years ?????? Yeah, I made them more millions than they ever gave me!!! Just let me gooo.” Take a look:
The Jasmine Brand points out Bobby spoke on the matter more. He said, “This is not a cry for help this is a message and understanding for my fans that they stopping my music and prolonging my career I’ve been holding s**t down doing everything on my own since I been home it’s been a year now I still feel like I’m in prison ???????”
Then Bobby confirmed his album is done and ready. It’s not clear why Epic reportedly wont release Bobby’s music. Hopefully everyone is able to come to a better understanding.
