“So look I made Atlantic records 100’s of millions and let them rape me out out Roddy a artist they came to me about in jail,” Meek said in a series of tweets. “They still saying I can’t drop music until 9 months after my last album got blackballed just wrapped buildings and Nina art with talent.”
He continued “Roddy my youngin still …. But that label seperated us instantly when the millions came in from him… same thing they tried to do with me and rozay … it takes a long time to catch up too because most of em tied in for the love of some money …artist scared to speak up.”
Meek alleges Atlantic stopped Roddy from signing with him, by trying to make it seem like he didn’t have his best interest.
“I had to think Roddy didn’t come to me he was on his own grind … they bought him to me and cut me out soon as the money came … the label should of paid me not “Roddy” then they fed him like I was tryna lock him in … I was tryna help and eat ain’t get a Dolla from label!”
In subsequent tweets he confirmed he’s in good terms with his “Splash Warning” collaborator, though Atlantic would have preferred they remain at war.
“Me and Roddy good now this not about him at all … they would of let us go to war and made the money still … I had to say im rich that’s my youngin and turn to these people and ask wassup for my work they asked me to do! I ain’t get a dollar
The Philly native also claims the label, despite making millions off his talents didn’t put anything into his latest album, “Expensive Pain,” and have prohibited him from dropping another project for nine months.
“They didn’t put nothing into expensive pain and then said I can’t drop another project for 9 months at the end of my contract after I made them 100’s of millions ….. how would can anybody survive that … most rappers can’t speak because they depend on these companies “ I don’t”
He then calls out the label for “taking advantage” of young black kids and “calling it business.” He also encouraged other artists to speak up and tell the truth about their label situations.
