However, the promoters say they got a call from 2 Chainz’ people on September 11th (the day before he was scheduled to hit the stage) from the airport in Oklahoma and they didn’t know where to find their transportation.
The company asked why they had arrived a day before the show and 2 Chainz’s people said they believed he was scheduled for Friday. The promoters explained this was wrong and the rapper’s team said he would only perform today or else. Also, the rapper’s team said it was his birthday on Saturday and he would have never agreed to perform on his b-day.
2 Chainz then informed the company he would not be performing on Saturday and he was true to his word and didn’t show up to the festival. They say they later found out that the rapper did perform at a night club on Saturday in Atlanta.
They are suing 2 Chainz for fraud with the promoters believing he never intended to actually take the stage. Further, they are demanding damages in excess of $75k and attorney fees.
