The record label explained Rich Homie Quan signed an exclusive recording agreement with them back in 2012. They said they invested many hours and money into promoting and marketing his career.
But they said several months after he signed with them he became money-hungry and unhappy with the deal. The rapper began to dodge his contractual obligations to the label.
The suit says that in spring 2013 Rich Homie Quan stopped consulting with them about his career in regards to his music, concert tours, endorsements, appearances, etc… The rapper began releasing mixtapes, songs, signed up for tour with Wiz Khalifa and became a spokesperson for Avion Tequila.
Think It’s A Game Entertainment said the rapper never accounted for the money he made from the unauthorized music he released, didn’t tell them the details of his Tequila deal and didn’t hand over any money from merchandise sold at the concert with Wiz.
The label slapped Rich Homie Quan with a counter-suit demanding full accounting for all money he has made from his deals, an injunction against the rapper from releasing unauthorized videos, songs and mixed tapes and an order prohibiting the rapper from entering into a new record deal. They said that the rapper has been trying to sign a new record deal.
Think It’s A Game Entertainment explained the deal Rich Homie Quan signed with them gives them 50% ownership of all songs he releases and they want the court to order their original contract as valid.
