Meek Mill called out his label on Monday for apparent mismanagement and failure to pay him for his music.
“i haven’t get paid from music and i don’t know how much money labels make off me!!!!! i need lawyers asap!!!,” Meek wrote in a since-deleted tweet. In a follow-up tweet, Meek wrote, “ask the record label? how much have you spent on me as a artist? then you ask how much have you made off me as a artist? i’m about to make my record deal public by monday just to let the world see what these people on!!!”
Meek's tweet elicited supportive responses from his peers in the industry, including Keyshia Cole and Tyrese.
“Never received a check from any record label, period. But I just thought about that the other day. It’s nothing wrong with Obtaining Audit Atterney’s [sic] so that you’re aware of where every dollar went. Trust me. A lot gets ‘Lost in the sauce,’” Keyshia Cole wrote.
Tyrese added, “Most of us who were signed 20 years ago we should ALL DEMAND OUR MASTERS be reverted back to us………. Yeah I said it by Dec 2022 I will own 5 of my masters from releases over the years…… Speak up on it or they will keep collecting off of your body of work….”
