A&R Leroy "Lucky" Burton and marketing and

promotions Kevin "Big Rap" Brinson. Legit Ballin'

sources say the third partner heading a reorganization of

the Chicago label known as CWAL Mob, producer Sam "Legendary

Traxster" Lindley, was invited to the New York meeting

but declined to attend.


all good," said a Legit Ballin' source, who asked not

his legal bills and put Legit Ballin' on point."
