Rich the Kid’s management company reportedly filed a $3.5 million breach of contract lawsuit against him. Blueprint Artist Management claims that the “Plug Walk” rapper failed to pay them millions, including monies earned from a 2017 deal that the company forged on his behalf, TMZ reports.
According to Variety, Rich the Kid signed with The Blueprint Group in 2018. The management conglomerate partners Maverick management, with Gee Roberon’s Hip Hop Since 1978, Cordell Bryant’s Bryant Management, and Shawn Gee’s SEFG. The company boasts a roster of clientele that includes Lil Wayne, The Roots, Lil Nas X, and G-Eazy.
“Rich the Kid is burgeoning Rap Mogul in the making,” Blueprint/Maverick partner and chief marketing officer Al Branch said in a 2018 statement to Variety. “I’m so excited to see Rich the Kid and Jay Critch provide the Blueprint for the new generation of artists, entertainers, and executives.”
Last year, Rich The Kid was sued by a landlord over $30,000 in unpaid rent, and for allegedly posting the landlord’s lawyer’s phone number online .
