TeeRoy's 2 cents:
- He previously said he'd deleted all his music -- which would presumably include the Eternal Atake 2 sessions.
- Can the situation really be that bad that he wants to give up music? Or does he just want out of his contract?
- Maybe he can try a Prince move and change his name.
- It'd be nice if this cry for help inspires folks to work things out.
- Could he really have deleted all his music? Surely there are backups somewhere -- like on an engineer's hard drive or in the cloud?
In an Instagram video, the Philly rapper blamed his label situation for the rash decision. He said, “Y’all talking about drop something… I’m tryna drop something. I dropped 'New Patek.' That [ish] ain’t getting leaked... All I can do is make music and sit back and wait for y’all response and make visions to this [ish]. You think I don’t wanna drop music? You just gotta understand when people don’t love you, they’ll hold your life if you sign a [deal]…[and] hold that [ish] against you…”
He went on to compare signing a deal to snitching. “You ain’t supposed to sign no… paper in the streets because that’s rattin. How the [hell] I even sign this…as a deal... [I] set myself up. What other way I was suppose to let this… go?… It be all good at first just like them…rats. [They] be right out of jail.”
