Juelz Santana a long with his fellow Dipset brethren (sadly my Jim Jim wasn’t there) performed at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Sunday (August 31st), and rumour has it, he was robbed.
According to sources the Harlem rapper’s jewellery was stolen over the weekend, and it was revenge for shafting several promoters out of 70k in the past. Click here to read more…..
it’s rough out here……
In an statement to AllHipHop.com, Juelz Santana revealed details about the incident, which took place as the rapper was preparing for a show at the Sheperd Busch Empire in London on Sunday (August 31).
“Bottom line, my former Manager along with an ex group member (no specific names mentioned due to the “No Snitching” rule) accepted an astronomical amount of money for a paid date that never happened or was ever brought to my knowledge,” Juelz Santana told AllHipHop.com. “I was NOT robbed. My staff and I were kicked out of our original hotel for the commotion.”
Despite working out his outstanding differences with the promoter, the two shows in the United Kingdom were canceled as a result of the altercation.
“The London and Wolverhampton shows were canceled by the UK Police minutes before show time due to the hotel commotion and the Police’s inability to handle the turn out,” added Santana’s publicist Lynn Hobson, who witnessed the chaos.
Other than the two canceled shows in the United Kingdom, Juelz Santana, JR Writer and Skull Gang members Richmond Rab and DJ Tobb Cobain completed a successful tour of Europe, which included stops in Amsterdam; Rotterdam; Sweden; Switzerland and Norway (Trondheim, Bergen, and Oslo). (Source)
They performed in other parts of Europe and things went smoothly without incident. They visit these shores and encounter this breed of foolishness. Plus the fans who forked out money to see them perform, and the UK support acts had to miss out because idiot London boy ‘promoters’ (well done you A-holes!!!) felt like they had something to prove, and decided to run up in to a hotel like a hurd of blasted elephants to settle an old score.
Why didn’t they just sue his management at the time when they realised they had been shafted out of 70k?
Juelz – “Bottom line, my former Manager along with an ex group member (no specific names mentioned due to the “No Snitching” rule) accepted an astronomical amount of money for a paid date that never happened or was ever brought to my knowledge,”
It does not take a genius to figure out who those individuals are……
And taking in to account Juelz’s history within the industry (folk have taken major liberties with him and his career in the past), his explanation does sound plausible.
Juelz gives Miss Info the low down – Listen
Who in their right mind just hands over 70k like that???
