Meek Mill Lashes Out At Atlantic Records, Accuses Them Of ‘Separating’ Him From Roddy Rich: I Made Atlantic Records 100’s Of Millions And Let Them R*p* Me Out Roddy!
Meek Mill has some words for his record label.
Rapper Meek Mill is unhappy with his record label, Atlantic records. In a series of Tweets, he accuses the label of holding his music hostage and blames them for the poor performance of his last album. The rapper also claims that they forced a wedge between himself and fellow rapper Roddy Rich. He said:
“So look I made Atlantic records 100’s of millions and let them rape me out out Roddy a artist they came to me about in jail … they still saying I can’t drop music until 9 months after my last album got blackballed just wrapped buildings and Nina art with talent …”
He continued his rant, stating:
“Roddy my youngin still …. But that label seperated us instantly when the millions came in from him… same thing they tried to do with me and rozay … it takes a long time to catch up too because most of em tied in for the love of some money …artist scared to speak up.
They didn’t put nothing into expensive pain and then said I can’t drop another project for 9 months at the end of my contract after I made them 100’s of millions ….. how would can anybody survive that … most rappers can’t speak because they depend on these companies “ I don’t.”
“If I didn’t have millions I’d prolly do something crazy …. They out smarting young black kids taking advantage and calling it business! Other artist speak up and tell the truth while you winning not when you down!
I had to think Roddy didn’t come to me he was on his own grind … they bought him to me and cut me out soon as the money came … the label should of paid me not “Roddy” then they fed him like I was tryna lock him in … I was tryna help and eat ain’t get a Dolla from label!”
“Also I had to fight for my life to get dc4 counted as a album because they said I “called it a mixtape” if y’all made 20 million off it what is it counted as?
Me and Roddy good now this not about him at all … they would of let us go to war and made the money still … I had to say im rich that’s my youngin and turn to these people and ask wassup for my work they asked me to do! I ain’t get a dollar.”
Meek Mill signed with Mayback Music–a division of Atlantic founded by Rick Ross–in 2011.
His latest release, Expensive Pain, spent its first week at number 3 on the US Billboard 200. By the following week, it had dropped to number 4.
