Prodigy Must Make Public Statement As Part Of His Universal Music Settlement | Music News
In November 2015, Mobb Deep’s ex member Prodigy, filed a suit against Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), since the company allegedly collected the artist’s fees for featuring work that was not covered in his publishing deal.
Although the court records filed on March 1 confirmed that Prodigy has settled with UMPG, they also revealed that the rapper must make a public statement on the dispute clarifying that it was a “misunderstanding” of the terms and conditions of the deal.
Albert Johnson – the real name of the artist – agreed to tweet the following statement: “My dispute with UMPG was all a misunderstanding. Thankful that we resolved it quickly and happy to be continuing my long-standing relationship with UMPG”.
Despite tweeting those words in accordance with the settlement earlier today (March 2), Prodigy has then deleted the tweet and followed that with a new tweet, which reads “#bbhmm” and it most likely refers to Rihanna’s song “B***h Better Have My Money”.
