Yung Joc to Sue Diddy
Yung Joc is not so happy with Diddy and his Bad Boy label and is planning to get a little retribution by getting a few suits involved.
Yung Joc has told Billboard.com that he plans to file a lawsuit against Bad Boy Records and Block Entertainment for a host of contractual discrepancies, including failure to pay royalties and advances for his first two albums and charging "outrageous clearance fees" for his collaborations with other artists.
"I haven't been paid any royalties since I've been out, after over a million albums sold," says Joc. "For my first album, they gave me a $25,000 advance when I was supposed to get more...Then I had a million dollar budget for my second album, never even got an advance off of it. For the third one they hit me with another $25,000, like I'm some chump in this s***. And I just got tired of it."
Even though Yung Joc says his main outrage is with Block Entertainment, the company that got him his Bad Boy record deal, he also expressed distaste over his label's lack of support. "Diddy said he's got to stay out of it because it's between me and Block Entertainment," Yung Joc explains. "I was never signed to Block Entertainment, but they've been interfering with a lot of my business. I feel like [Bad Boy] isn't doing anything to try to intervene and help the situation."
Hope Joc can pull this off. Good luck, buddy.
