Cardi BThe legal beef with her former manager is finally over – and she seems to be pretty happy with the results.
The rapper has the dispute between her and As, her former manager, who sued her for $ 10 million in 2018 … and claims he discovered her, and that she left him in the cold as soon as she really blew up after the success of her first mega-hit ‘Bodak Yellow’ ‘.
Shaft claims his team of writers / producers produced the song for her, and not only that … he claims he put her on the road to mainstream fame by getting her on VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop’ – just to be proper payment refused when she subsequently secured millions.
Cardi, of course, invested at $ 15 million … claims that the contract she signed with him when he was incredibly unfair and too one-sided – not to mention greedy in how many cuts he allegedly tried to collect from her (a commission of 20% initially and then 50% discount on her Sony edition later, she claims). She also said that Shaft tried to control almost every aspect of her life, including who she could date Offset.
These lawsuits worked on their own through the system for a while – and Cardi even made requests about how her upcoming deposit should be handled – but in the end it seems that both parties have reached a mutual agreement to sweep it all under the rug.
AllHipHop acquired doctors to show that the matter has been dismissed with prejudice, which means that neither party can fill the same grievance again. They also agreed to cover their own attorney fees.
Usually this means that money is exchanged in some form – but Cardi speaks casually after the news of her settlement became known … it seems as if she considers herself a winner.
She tweeted: “Feel good to be free.”
