(AllHipHop News) For decades, artists and music labels have been caught in conflicts over deals, release dates, finances, creative freedom, and more.
The latest entertainer to take issue with a record company is producer Southside, aka Sizzle.
In particular, the “I Got The Keys” beat maker took aim at Interscope Geffen A&M Records and its Executive Vice-President Joie Manda.
“These motherf-ckers want to see you fail,” stated Southside in a live social media broadcast. “This bald head a## n-gga Joie flew me to New York to tell me, ‘Yo, we’re gonna back out because we don’t want anyone to sue you for what happened with your deal.'”
He continued, “N-ggas came to rob me. Y’all mad I upped pistols on n-ggas cause they came to rob me? Come on, bro. That’s crazy.”
According to Southside, Interscope executives requested he not talk about their meeting in public.
“F-ck y’all! I don’t need y’all money,” declared the 808 Mafia member.
Sizzle then warned aspiring artists about signing with Interscope.
He also suggested the company’s successful acts like Kendrick Lamar and Mike Will Made-It’s EarDrummers crew were anomalies.
“Let me get my money, n-gga, for all them wack a## f-cking projects y’all had me doing with them wack a## artists y’all got. F-ck outta here,” said Southside. “Kendrick’s the only thing over there that’s fire. And Mike Will do his part for his side. Y’all don’t do sh-t for Mike.”
The Atlanta native added, “Everybody else over there – f-ck ya! I don’t give a f-ck. Who gonna say what? Nobody gonna say nothing, n-gga.”
Sizzle later mentioned Playboi Carti as the only other artist on Interscope that he respects.
In addition, Southside announced he’s teaming with TM88 for an upcoming 808 Mafia album titled F-ck The Label Vol 1.
“Y’all n-ggas ain’t gonna enslave me. I’m not going for that sh-t,” asserted the Trap Ye mixtape creator. “Y’all n-ggas mad ’cause I’m smart and I’m black. That’s what it is.. Y’all been trying to make me sign [a deal]. I’m not a f-cking idiot. Y’all done lost y’all f-cking mind. I’m a black CEO for a reason. I took nothing and made that sh-t into millions.”
