Kodak Black Said Dollaz and Dealz Entertainment Screwed Him Over
Kodak Black has agreed to settle a breach of contract case with the Florida label he started out with, BOSSIP has learned.
The “Skrt” rapper, who was born Dieuson Octave, sued Dollaz and Dealz Entertainment back in December for breach of contract because he claimed they screwed him over with bad contracts.
Kodak Black signed with Dollaz and Dealz back in 2013, but signed another deal with the label when he went to Atlantic Records in 2015.
The teen rapper said the contracts with Dollaz and Dealz were bad and he was duped into signing without a lawyer present. At the time of the first contract, the teen rapper was only 16-years-old, and he said in court papers that he didn’t know any better.
Kodak Black said the label was supposed to make regular payments to him and give him an accounting of his finances, but didn’t, according to court docs. On top of that, Dollaz and Dealz’s CEO, AC Julien, is currently locked up on unrelated charges, and physically couldn’t provide the management and recording services that the company agreed to.
The father of one contended that the contracts are also unenforceable because the label lacked the mandatory talent agency license that it’s required to have under Florida state law.
Kodak wanted out of his contract, a court to rule that he didn’t have to record with Dollaz and Dealz anymore and any damages the judge thought he deserved.
But both parties have settled the case out of court, and the judge this week agreed to throw the case out. The case was dismissed with prejudice, so Kodak Black can’t sue the label again for the same thing.
This isn’t Kodak Black’s first brush with a courtroom. He is currently battling sexual battery charges in South Carolina, and sued his baby mama, Jammiah Broomfield, for joint custody of their three-year-old son, King Khalid.
