Mobb Deep is in some deep legal trouble according to reports. 50 Productions are alleging that the group owes approximately $500K for expenses paid to help make the duo successful over the years. Although Prodigy passed away recently, that isn’t deterring 50 Productions from their suit. According to TMZ:
Buck 50 Productions says they managed the careers of Prodigy and Havoc from 2010 until Prodigy’s death last summer — and over that period the rappers racked up a serious tab. In the suit, Buck 50 says their team booked touring, recording and endorsement deals. They also paid advances to Mobb Deep … for which Buck 50 was never reimbursed, they say.
Total cost for services rendered, according to the suit — at least $500,000.
This story sounds a bit incomplete. 8 years without out getting reimbursed sounds like a stretch but we’re sure the details will be revealed soon enough. Hopefully, surviving Mobb Deep member Havoc can clear this all up. We’ll keep you posted.
