Prosecutors in two
counties are investigating a canceled rap concert in Dothan, Alabama, that was
to feature Paul Wall, Mike Jones and Chamillionaire on Dec. 9.
Attorneys in Coffee and Houston Counties were contacted by local
businesses who sold over $4,000 worth of tickets.
According to police, the show was promoted and advertised on
Dothan radio station WDBT and was booked by a promotional company named Top
A crowd showed up to the Farm Center, only to be greeted with
a sign that stated the concert was canceled with no reason given.
Fans of the rappers went to the local businesses demanding refunds
for the concert. One local retailer said he shelled out over $1500 in refunds
to appease his angry customers.
According to The Farm Center’s manager, promoters never
paid the remaining deposit to secure the building or returned phone calls inquiring
about the balance.
Paul Wall confirmed
with AllHipHop.com that he was not aware of the concert and had not been booked
to play in the area.
