AceShowbiz - Keyshia Cole has joined Meek Mill in calling out their respective record labels. After the "Going Bad" rapper claimed he hasn't been paid for his music, the "Love" hitmaker declared that she also has a similar experience.
Meek, who is managed by Roc Nation, first aired out his frustration on Twitter on Monday, October 25. "i haven't get paid from music and i don't know how much money labels make off me!!!!! i need lawyers asap!!!" he argued in a since-deleted tweet.
The "Intro" spitter further stressed, "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!!!" He, however, did not mention whether he was referring to Maybach Music Group and/or Atlantic Records.
After Meek's tweets were shared by The Shade Room, Keyshia took to the comment section to tell her own stories. "Never received a check from any record label, period," she penned. "But I just thought about that the other day. It's nothing wrong with Obtaining Audit Atterney's so that you're aware of where every dollar went. Trust me. A lot gets 'Lost in the sauce.' "
Tyrese Gibson then chimed in in the discussion, saying, "Most of us who were signed 20 years ago we should ALL DEMAND OUR MASTERS be reverted back to us." The singer/actor continued, "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."
Hours afterwards, Keyshia clarified her previous statement. "I did get 10Mill my bad. Jimmy Iovine, Doug Morris took care of me. Just never any after that. My money over the years come from the songs I've written. I do agree with the audit part tho. Cause I would like to get one done for my records as well. I just don't want to leave that quote like that. so sorry," she pointed out.
