theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, 2 Chainz has reached a settlement in the legal battle accusing him of defrauding a concert promoter out of $$$ over a music festival performance, with the rapper signing a confidential agreement to end the lawsuit once and for all.

Here’s the backstory: Concert promotion company named Levelland Productions filed a lawsuit against rapper 2 Chainz, his marketing team Street Execs Management and his business manager David Leeks.

The promoters explained they put together a Oklahoma music festival called the Rawhide Festival. They say they booked 2 Chainz to perform at their September 12th concert back on July.

They said they wired the rappers booking deposit to him in August for the performance. Further, they claimed to have spent substantial amounts of cash on promoting and preparing for the rappers performance at their festival.

However, the promoters said 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 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 filed suit against 2 Chainz for fraud with the promoters believing he never intended to actually take the stage. Further, they demanded damages in excess of 75k and attorney fees.

Here’s the latest: On June 7th, 2 Chainz and the concert promoter informed the court that they reached a settlement in the case which will result in the entire lawsuit and all claims against the rapper to be dismissed. Both parties agreed to pay their own attorney fees. The terms of the agreement are confidential and will remain under seal. The case will close after the judge signs off in the near future.
