AceShowbiz - Polo G and G Herbo (Lil Herb) are involved in a new legal trouble. The two hip-hop stars were reportedly named in a lawsuit from NoNaNi Entertainment head, Charles Potter, who accused them of canceling their scheduled appearances in a Florida festival because they double booked shows in another city.
According to TMZ, Potter claimed that he has contracts which reveal the "Distraction" artist collected about $143K in deposits. As for G Herbo, he allegedly pocketed around $43K. Potter also said that NoNaNi paid another $200,000 to handle venue costs, a soundstage, lighting, advertising, promotion and several hosts, including "Million Dollaz Worth of Game" hosts Gillie Da Kid and Wallo.
Following the cancelation of its event, which was named Hoopz & Hip Hop, NoNaNi announced on its Instagram account at the time, "Apologies to all ticket holders but the Polo G & G Herbo Hoopz & Hip Hop event has been cancelled due to circumstances out of NoNaNi Ent's control. We apologize for the inconvenience. Tickets are 100% refundable at Ticketmaster's and Eventbrite."
Hoopz & Hip Hop was supposed to take place on November 27, 2021 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Instead of showing up for the show, Potter alleged in the legal documents that Polo G booked and promoted an entirely different event in Tampa around the same time. G Herbo, meanwhile, booked another show in Atlanta on the same date as the Tampa gig.
Potter also criticized the two Chicago rappers for allegedly failing to promote the NoNaNi event on their social media accounts, despite agreeing to do so in their contracts. The company is now suing both MCs for $300K in damages.
This wasn't the first time for G Herbo to come under fire for bailing on a performance. Back in April, he canceled a show at the last minute via a video. Fans were upset because the rapper only announced the cancellation after the concert-goers were already inside the venue and waiting for the performance to begin.
