gotten so greedy behind money," Hobbs told AllHipHop.com. "Flip has
burned a lot of bridges in the South, thinking he’s Tupac, acting all big headed.
that Flip refused to let other Sucka Free artists perform with him and felt
that he deserved most of the proceeds for concert appearances.
got outta jail and started booking shows and collecting the money," Hobbs
said. "His daddy said that Flip was tired from touring and needed a break.
I gave him a few days off and then I find out that Flip is doing a big concert."
Hobbs said he confronted
the rapper, who denied the charges. "I sent some people from the label
behind him on a later plane. They catch him on the stage performing. He sees
the boys from the label and tells security not to let them in."
Flip agreed the
falling out was due to money. "If you say that we spent a million dollars
on something, I want to see that," Flip told AllHipHop.com. "If we
cool and you my homey, show me everything."
Hobbs called the
situation unfortunate, because he was simply trying to allow his upcoming acts,
Lil Ron and Young Red to gain exposure.
"We been doing
this together for seven years," Hobbs said. "They helped you get your
writing straight. I can see me and him falling out cause I wouldn’t let him
do the young boys like that. He’s probably been doing this to the young boys
for the longest. The song on the "2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack is Red and
Flip. Flip had the relationship with the people at Universal and he has the
people thinking he’s on the song by himself. Universal is stupid cause they
can’t tell it’s two different artists. so now I gotta fight for Young Red’s
Hobbs vowed to
fight the entire situation in court, if the two men do not resolve their differences.
"I told Sony
and Flip ‘I got a label deal, not an artist deal.’ I hope it doesn’t go that
far. The only way we gonna left him off Sucka Free is if Sony buys me out. He
came to me as a child in middle school. I raised him and got him to where he
is to this day. Go grab your lawyer and let’s get this sh*t cracking. It’s only
gonna hurt Flip as long as I got the contract."
