808 Mafia producer and CEO Southside Aka Young Sizzle publicly cuts all ties with Interscope Record after they allegedly tried to have him killed.
As fifty said back in 2007: “When I made fifty mill, Em got paid / When I made sixty mill, Dre got paid / When I made eighty mill, Jimmy got paid” in ‘straight to the bank’ off of his ‘curtis’ album, the greedy Interscope Record Executives like the money but don’t actually support nor appreciate the lifestyle that comes with it.
The 808 Mafia CEO and world famous producer Southside first took it to twitter saying :
” On some 100 Shit F*** these labels. I had a situation where I defended myself on their studio grounds, where they let people in to harm me and my guest. I reacted in order to keep myself safe , now keep in mind ( INTERSCOPE) was puttin together a label with which by the way was bulls**t. They pulled out of my deal because I defended my self from being robbed so its f*** the label. You are an idiot if you sign with them, they care nothing about us or what goes on . They backed out on me lije I needed them. By far I don’t and never will. They are full of shit.”
Blasts Interscope Record & EVP Joie Manda
He then took to Instagram live to express his frustrations with the music giant. In the video,Sizzle from his real name Joshua Howard Luellen claims that during the recording session with who he called ” a $2 dollar rapper from atlanta” in some Interscope studio a group of unidentified men errupted in studio and tried to rob him. Pulling out his gun he was able to defend himself and his guest from intruders which resulted in the Interscope Geffen A&M Records imprint to halt the deal they had.
“You mad because I upped pistols on n*****s so I lose my whole deal? Then they want me to be quiet and not speak out, man f*** y’all.” said Sizzle. And according to him, they requested him not to talk about their meeting in public.“Y’all N***** not gonn enslave me, imma speak ma motherf*****g mind”
in the heated monologue on social media he expressed his deep-seated distaste against Interscope’s Executive Vice-President Joie Manda who allegedly flew him to the big apple :
“This bald head ass n-gga Joie flew me to New York to tell me, ‘Yo, we’re gonna back out because we don’t want anyone to sue you for what happened with your deal.”
He also took the opportunity to reveal that a new 808 album is in the works, entitled “Fuck The Label Vol. 1”.
Sizzle was the architect of Waka Flocka Flame style and pretty much originated modern trap. His ubiquitous influence in the hip hop scene is undeniable and has helped the career of dozens, across the past eight years, from the biggest names as he executively produced I got the keys featuring Jay-z & Future to more modest act as the late 6lack.
He has spend the last few days in chicago with G Herbo and Lud Foe in the studio and lately participated in Kodak Black latest release called ‘Just a Wrap‘.
