Meek Mill Blasts His Record Label For Not Paying Him Inspired By N.O.R.E

 

Robert Rihmeek Williams, known as Meek Mill is a rap artist and label owner with a lot of awards, the star took to his Twitter to blasts his record though he wasn’t certain. 


The star is signed to Atlantic Records and Maybach Music Group, which he wasn’t certain Of which of the record is not paying him.


“I haven’t get get paid from music and i don’t know how much money labels make off me,” Meek wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “I need lawyers asap!!!”


Meek said  “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!!!”


N.O.R.E might  have been the source of inspiration for Meek Mill to go to Twitter and vent his frustrations with his label. During a recent visit to the I Am Athlete podcast, the Drink Champs host spoke about his first-hand experience of the ugly side of the music industry.

“When you sign to a major label, that money that they give you, let’s say they give you $800,000, alright? That’s a loan,” N.O.R.E. said. “You have to pay back that loan with interest. So, if you don’t make back that $800,000, what they do is, they put you in the red.


“You can still be hot and you didn’t make back that $800,000. So, they’ll give you another album, and instead of $800,000, they’ll give you $1.2 million this time.”


He continued, “But you still in the hole for that $800 you understand? But you got another $1.2 million and if you don’t make that, then you’re just in the red for both. And this is a loan with interest that you don’t get nothing out of.


Not all contracts are profitable for artist, so you need to learn more as to ascertain more knowledge of what you signed for and what you are getting from it.


Though the rapper has put his over 10.9 million followers on a high expectation as to who among the two labels is the rapper talking about, we guess the MMG owned by Rick Ross because Rozay as usual will be all over the new album “Expensive Pain” which he was not.


We look forward to when the star will officially announce who he is referring to.
