KRS-One has won an injunction against In The
Paint/Koch Entertainment, barring the label from selling his anticipated Kristyle
album, which was slated to drop today (June 24).
According to KRS, the album was halted due to
alleged contractual breaches with the production and marketing of the album.
The court order prohibits the promotion, distribution
and sale of the album until the issues between the two parties are resolved.
“Although I am proud of all of my work,
this is not the album that I intended to put out," KRS said in a statement.
"It seems that In The Paint/Koch has taken (without my permission)
the rough mixes of the Kristyle album and has made a Kristyles.
This is unacceptable! ”
Fans were advised to seek out and find the original
album on such outlets as Kazaa and to not purchase the the album for the retail
price of $17.98.
Those who want the original album can also call
1-866-hiphop9 to order an original, autographed copy for $10.00.
In The Paint/Koch representatives were not available
for comment at press time.
