Rapper Rick Ross Hit With $226k For Performing A 15-Minute Set
A promoter has filed a lawsuit against Miami rap star Rick Ross, over a truncated show that took place in Charlotte, North Carolina during CIAA weekend.
Rick Ross, Meek Mill and Waka Flocka Flame are the subjects of a lawsuit filed by SM Global Union, over a show held at the Bojangles Coliseum.
The rappers were paid a total of $225,000 to perform 60-minutes sets during the CIAA weekend in March.
According to the lawsuit, SM Global Union paid Rick Ross $90,000 to perform for an hour, but the rapper only delivered 15 minutes and abruptly walked off the stage.
Waka Flocka and Meek Mill are being sued for breaching their contracts, by failing to advertise and promote the party through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
They are in addition to appearing at numerous venues prior to the March 2 performance.
SM Global Union is suing for breach of contract, and seeks $226,000 in damages, as well as lost profits.
