Last month, the “Hot Ni**a” hitmaker put the label and its CEO Sylvia Rhone on blast while saying that he wanted out of the deal, which he signed when he was just 19.

“I got a 70 year old lady running my label and I love her dearly but doesn’t want to let me go at alllllllll,” he wrote in a since-deleted post. “No matter what I do I’ve been sign to them since I was 19 I did six years in jail trying to get off this label before I came home you name one person in the industry a lable [sic] keeps sign in jail for six years???? Yeah IK IK I made them more millions than they ever gave me!!! Just let me gooo.”

He also claimed that he felt imprisoned by his contract. “It’s been ah year now I still feel like I’m in prison,” he wrote in his caption.
