Rowdy Rebel claims his record label Epic Records hasn’t paid him for any music he’s released since 2014. In a since-deleted Instagram post, the Brooklyn-born rapper aired out his grievances on Tuesday (Dec. 14) and said he won’t be releasing anything new until the company pays him.
Rowdy has released a slew of new music this year. Just last week, the rapper was featured on Doe Boy’s song “Ain’t My Fault” alongside 42 Dugg. Earlier this year, he also appeared on the “Godfather of Harlem” soundtrack and teamed up with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie for “9 Bridge.”
Last December, Rowdy was released from New York’s Collins Correctional Facility after serving six years behind bars. The “Computers” rapper was arrested in 2014 alongside Bobby and 12 other GS9 affiliates for conspiracy, attempted murder, attempted assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon. He initially pleaded not guilty to all charges, but later reversed his plea for a deal that sentenced him to six to seven years in prison.
Ahead of Bobby’s release, Rowdy penned him a heartfelt note on social media.
“I wouldn’t be here RN if you haven’t been the same genuine person I met in elementary…I never seen you fold or bend through treacherous times. Always thinking and doing for others,” he wrote at the time. “I thank God I got a friend like you I could call a brother. I love you like you my mama kids ….see you soon kid.
