Sahdeeq has emailed the majority of webmasters the
past week to clear up his status with Rawkus and to confirm that
he is still alive and well.
After several Rawkus
employee’s went as far as going to his house in Brooklyn to find
him, he issued this statement two days ago:
"This is in response
to all the RUMORS, NEWS ARTICLES, PHONE CALLS, ETC!!! I gave Rawkus
every thing a real MC could deliver, lyrics, beats, style, and
dedication. I created the underground buzz it takes to move records
by staying in the lab, doing shows (more promotional than paid),
doing radio / club promotions for the label, and involving myself
with other group projects. My singles, which featured some of
the best MCs in hip-hop, came and went without the proper push,
and they still managed to move in NY, the States and Overseas.
(Call FAT BEATS!!!) I did all of that on my own with minimal support
from the label.After my project
continuously got pushed back, without any explanation or guidance,
I began to feel as if the foundation I helped to build didn’t
prioritize my album that has been finished for almost a year.
There were decisions made without my best interest in consideration.
So in my best interest I decided to depart from the long waiting
list of projects that Rawkus had on their plate.
"I wish Rawkus
well and all my former label-mates success. PLEASE NOTE: THIS
DIDN’T STOP SHIT!!! THERE’S MORE S-DOUBLE TO COME!!!
I AIN’T DEAD YET!!!”
