Memphis rapper GloRilla had a dispute with her producer HitKidd over her hit song “F.N.F.” and claimed she was not paid.
Former Bad Boy label artist Mase was called out by Brooklyn rapper Fivio Foreign after, claiming he was not paid upfront for signing with him.
Other artists avoided a bad deal such as Dreamville rapper JID who said he turned down a contract from Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan and called the offer “disgusting.”
