R&B Superstar Chris Brown’s new tour “The Party Tour” was supposed to feature a bunch of rappers and most notably, 50 Cent. But at the last minute 50 pulled out of the whole situation. There was a lot of speculation as to why, but the Many Men rapper, who just released a greatest hits collection, has shed some more light on the situation.
According to Digital Music News:
According to new details from 50 Cent, this simply wasn’t a well-planned operation. And that includes basic setup on his inclusion contract. For starters, 50 Cent claims that negotiations had been finalized on his payment prior to the tour starting. Then, at the last second, touring giant Live Nation slashed that offer by hundreds of thousands of dollars.
But apparently this happened AFTER 50 Cent’s name was on all the promotional material. That did not deter the rapper from standing his ground, though. And so 50 said “nah.”
At first, TMZ reported that it was that the tour “couldn’t afford” 50 cent. 50 went to Instagram to say “I would never say my friends can’t afford me,” citing logistical problems.
The main point being that the tour wasn’t set up or handled correctly.
And Chris Brown hasn’t been without controversy during this whole time, with cancelled performances and pending legal issues he’s sorting out.
