Earlier this month, the Atlanta rapper made headlines for publicized money woes.
“U Don’t See Me” … Young Dro said it in a rap and did it in real life … failing to respond to a lawsuit filed against him over a Maserati and now he has to pay up. As TMZ first reported, Dro was sued earlier this year in and Atlanta court after he defaulted on payments for his 2007 Maserati Quattroporte Sport. The leasing company behind the suit repo’d the car and claimed the rapper still owed them $61,220.37. A default judgment was entered at the end of October in the company’s favor because Dro dropped the ball and failed to respond to the suit after he was served. The rapper was ordered to cough up the full amount plus attorney’s fees. Grand total = $67,613.12. (TMZ)
Back in 2009, Dro pieced together his delayed P.O.L.O. (Players Only Live Twice) sophomore album.
“When I walked in the office, couldn’t nobody look me in the eye,” Dro said in an interview. “They was looking down. You had Jim Jonsin beats, some of the best production I ever had on there. When I saw it I was like, ‘Oh my God. OMG.’ But then I said, ‘I’m gonna patch it up.’ The album got leaked, so we going back in the studio. We gonna get [Don] Cannon beats, we gonna get DJ Toomp beats, we gonna sew the album up and act like it ain’t never bled. No leak.” (MTV)
