In a recent interview with AllHipHop.com, Philadelphia-bred rapper Freck Billionaire and his personal manager Animal Steele responded to the comments made by Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mayweather, who signed Freck to his Philthy Rich Records, claimed that Freck Billionaire knowingly joined his company though he was already in another contract.
The boxer also alleged that the rapper stole a diamond watch. In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, Freck Billionaire responded to Mayweathers remarks.
Since you really at the bottom of your heart don’t wanna see anyone around you with anything, I’ll send a courier to you with my watch. Maybe you can use it to lure in your next victim,” Freck told AllHipHop.com.
Freck and Animal Steele both claim that the watch in question was a gift given to the newly signed rapper by Mayweather.
The watch was a gift from Floyd to Freck. It symbolized the business arrangement that we were all heading into together. Floyd’s out of control ego hindered any chance of success. We decided to weather through the storm and every time that Freck received any shine, all progress came to a screeching halt, said Steele.
In a recent AllHipHop interview, Mayweather charged the watch was stolen and attempts to recover from Freck have failed.
Mayweather said, “We were working with an artist named Freck Billionaire. When he came aboard we asked if he had any contracts and he said no. Come to find out he was signed with somebody. The guy was trying to sue us and Freck stole one of our watches and left. So weve been looking for Freck Billionaire but hes been ducking and dodging us. He stole a diamond watch and left.”
Steele also claims that Mayweather was trying to break Freck apart from the rap group Street Family, which also consists of Fabolous, Paul Cain and Red Café.
Once Floyd made it obvious that he didn’t want Freck affiliated with Street Fam and more specifically Fabolous, the line was crossed. It was Floyd’s “Philthy Rich or die” attitude that forced us to make a move back east. After all it was Fab’s guidance and leadership that put us on the map in the first place. At the end of the day our loyalty is to Street Fam and our personal relationship with Fabolous,” continued Steele.
In May it was reported that a Long Island-based company, Just for You Entertainment, was suing Mayweather, claiming that he stole their artist– Freck Billionaire.
As far as the allegation of a prior commitment is concerned, we all know that if Floyd had any true intentions of working on a Freck Billionaire project, his capital could’ve gotten to the bottom of any situation.
Freck continues to receive support from Brooklyn rapper Fabolous who featured him on his new album Loso’s Way on the track There He Go alongside Paul Cain, Red Café.
Last week Freck released his latest mixtape This Is Family Pt.2, which features Fabolous and Red Café, among others.
