Meek Mill is upset with his record label for failing to pay him for his music. On Monday (Oct. 25), the emcee, who recently released his Expensive Pain project, shared his frustrations on Twitter, where he sought legal assistance as he wondered how much money he’s helped the label earn.

“I haven’t get paid from music and I don’t know how much money labels make off me!!!!!” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “I need lawyers asap!!!”

“Ask the record label? how much have you spent on me as a[n] artist? Then you ask how much have you made off me as a[n] artist?” he continued.

The “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper then threatened to disclose the details of his record deal in a few days to make people aware of how the label is mismanaging his career. “I’m about to make my record deal public by Monday just to let the world see what these people on!!!” he tweeted.

In a third post, Meek claimed that he’s willing to go to the extreme to get his hard-earned money. “Ima war for everything that’s mines all ruthless vibes!” he wrote. His statements were met with understanding from Keyshia Cole, who had a similar experience.

Never received a check from any record label, period,” the “Love” singer wrote under a blog post about Meek’s tweet. “But I just thought about that the other day. It’s nothing wrong with Obtaining Audit Attorney’s [sic] so that you’re aware of where every dollar went. Trust me. A lot gets ‘Lost in the sauce.’”

Tyrese also jumped in the conversation, encouraging artists to fight for the rights to their music. “Most of us who were signed 20 years ago we should ALL DEMAND OUR MASTERS be reverted back to us……….,” he penned in a comment. “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….”
