 A lot of hip hop artists come from poverty so, the first sign of a better life they jump at it. However, a lot of those same artists get into bad situations for that reason alone. Rich Homie Quan speaks on his experience as a new artist and recently revealed he wasn’t as diligent as he should have been when getting signed. He claims that he didn’t even read the contract he first signed. Smh!! Peep the video below as he explains his deal with T.I and how he had to sue his record label.

TSR STAFF: Tanya P.! @tanyaxpayne _________________________ #Roommates, #RichHomieQuan had hit after hit in 2014. He came on the scene right around the time #YungThug did and formed a group we know as #RichGang. Obviously, Thug and Quan went their own way, but Rich Homie Quan is back and opening up to @BigfactsPod about the mistakes that resulted in him not being able to get paid properly. ____________________ We’ve seen many times, new artists get put on and then sign a janky contract. Though Rich Homie Quan is adamant that his contract wasn’t necessarily bad, but he did admit in retrospect he probably should have read the fine print. Because of that, he hasn’t been able to put out music because he wanted to make sure his business was right. _____________________ Now that he feels like he’s in a good space when it comes to his business, it’s looking like new music is on the way #Roommates! Are you excited for his new Rich Homie Quan? (📹: @bigfactspod)
