Incarcerated rapper Gucci Mane may be doing time behind bars but that’s not stopping him from seeking legal action against former label mate Waka Flocka Flame and his mother Debra Antney.
According to reports, Gucci has filed a lawsuit against Waka and others over various allegations including fraud.
The popular rhyme-sayer whose government name is Radric Davis and Michael Armour named Juaquin “Waka” Malphurs, Malphurs’ mother Debra Antney, producer and DJ Xavier “Zaytoven” Dotson, and rappers Khia Stone and Otis “OJ da Juiceman” Jones, Jr., in a federal lawsuit accusing them of fraud, racketeering, theft and breach of contract as it pertains to Davis’ company, 1017 Records, LLC, the complaint claims. Neither Antney nor Malphurs were able to be reached by phone at Mizay Entertainment, the company Antney runs. At least some of the accusations refer to events that happened during Davis’ 2009 stint in the Fulton County Jail. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Gucci took personal aim at former manager Debra Antney and accused her of stealing his money.
The complaint says Antney, who manages her son’s career and has her hands in the rise of several area hip hop artists, was hired to manage Davis in 2006 and was released from her duties in 2009. The lawsuit claims that Antney took control of the company and along with Malphurs and Stone spawned at least three separate companies without Davis’ consent and, for Malphurs, in direct violation of his artist’s contract. The complaint claims that Antney stole a ring and necklace from Davis, failed to report tax information on her income, and seized control of his money and assets and used them for herself. The lawsuit also accuses her of fraudulently inflating the costs of certain record label expenses and using the excess for personal gain. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Over the past few months, Waka Flocka has suggested Mane is mentally unstable.
The feud between the rappers has been going on for some time. On Sept. 16, Waka completely dissed him on Power 105, saying “Gucci lost his noodles, man. People think he’s gangsta and hard, he really needs medical attention, man.” He also brought up the Twitter war where Gucci said they both had slept with rapper, Nicki Minaj. “Nah man, the world would’ve known, man, she’s too poppin’,” he said about Nicki. “No disrespect to her, she’s like a sister to me, but it’s too poppin’. I would’ve been tried to grab those cool points.” (Hollywood Life)
Gucci received some bad news in an Atlanta courtroom last September.
Things are going from bad to worse for rapper Gucci Mane, who recently opened up about his drug addiction and was arrested for carrying a gun and weed. Now, it looks as if Mane will be spending some time behind bars for probation violation. According to papers uncovered by WorldWrapFederation.com, the rapper was booked for probation violation on September 16, just two days after his arrest on September 14. He was sentenced this past Friday (September 27), receiving 183 days (six months) in jail. Beyond that, we don’t have any further information, but it looks as if Gucci still has five open charges surrounding his recent arrest (three of them regarding the firearm, one of them for the drugs, and another for disorderly conduct). Gucci has announced plans to enter rehab once he’s through with his legal troubles. (Exclaim)
