Boosie Badazz publicly criticizes Empire Records for failing to compensate him adequately for his work with Yung Bleu.

Boosie Badazz blasted Empire Records on Instagram Live, Saturday, accusing the label of failing to pay him for signing his artist Yung Bleu. Boosie has a distribution deal with Empire Records.

You wouldn’t play with me like this, bro. Pay me my fuckin’ money, bro. Y’all forged my fuckin’ signature, bro.” He said

Now you and all parties involved will receive paperwork. If not Monday, then this Tuesday, it’s just this, okay? Now you all hit back. Now. You wanna hit back now? What up, bro?”

This isn’t the first time Boosie has voiced his frustration with Empire. He previously threatened to take them to court following Bleu’s 2019 departure from Boosie’s Vandross Music Group. He’s clarified that he has no issue with Bleu himself in the situation.


Bleu addressed the contractual dispute during an interview with HipHopDX in 2020. “I came to Boosie and told him I still wanted to rock with the brand but not signed to Columbia no more,” he explained at the time.

“I just wanted to rock independently, without a major label and Boosie was cool with it. He just wanted me to give him his profit and participation on the albums that I had left with him and I did.”
