Rotimi says that he's paid $100k of a $300k debt that 50 Cent said that he owes him.
50 trolled Rotimi online after his album became the #1 selling r&b album in the country - and 50 demanded his piece of the pie. Initially, Rotimi denied owing 50 the coins but in a recent interview with TMZ - he explained that he did, in fact, owe a debt.
"So I asked him, 'Can I get out of my deal?' And he said, 'Yes. I'm not going to hold you back. But there's business,'" Rotimi recounted to the news outlet. "I paid an upfront sum (to get out of my contract) and everything else would be through mechanical sales or royalty and everything."
He then stated that he paid 50 some money upfront:
"Because it is my brother, instead of waiting for royalties, and I am able to pay, I gave him $100,000," he continued. "[...] We're good. We're good."
