Kevo initially claimed in February that he had given Gunna $250,000 for a feature before being arrested and later released in the YSL RICO case.
The self-proclaimed Finesse God publicly calls out Gunna for failing to deliver a promised feature. The rapper admitted that he himself had been finessed out of $250,000 and demanded a refund from Gunna.
“I paid gunna last year for a feature 250k And months later he got a caught case which put my feature and everything else got put on hold, just for him to get released and snitch[.] I can’t do a song with dude I need my bread back asap and if they cap im going big lawsuit,” Kevo wrote on Twitter at the time.
Now, it appears that Bandman Kevo’s price has increased. He claimed that he is seeking $5 million from the native of Atlanta as payment for the scrapped feature in an interview with Say Cheese! on Sunday, April 2.
He asserted that since the YSL rapper was released late last year, Gunna’s team has been holding off on approving the feature and that the song was ultimately a bad investment.
“You got out and his managers still ain’t try to make it no better. They’re like, ‘Ah well, he just got home,’” Kev said. “Lady, it’s been over a year. You feel me? So it was like they were kinda careless with it. So I’m like, ‘Alright, well shit, you might as well run a bag back.’”
“So, you want a refund?” the interviewer asked.
“Really, I want more money because of all the time wasted over a year that was at that time type shit. I feel like I deserve some real M’s. Who knows where the song could have been before you messed your name up, like $5 million.
“Look, realistically before he got locked up, if I woulda dropped the song he woulda posted it and it woulda did what it did. The song, I was gonna make it go big.”
Kev continued by saying that the song’s delayed release was a result of clearance holdups, “lawyers,” and “doing things the correct way so everything must make sense.”
“I was just trying to make everything make sense first,” he explained. “I feel like it hurt my investment bad because…as soon as I invested, I feel like that’s when he was at his peak. Now if you woulda got out and did the right thing, he woulda been bigger.
“So that was another part of waiting like alright when he get out, him and Thug get out and go crazy it gonna be the biggest thing in the world. So with that being said, it’s like ‘damn’ type shit.”
In addition, Gunna was accused of being a snitch by Bandman Kevo due to the Alford plea agreement he took to avoid jail, however fans swiftly mocked Kev for these remarks and claimed the Chicago rapper had expressed a different opinion just a few months prior in a previous interview with Say Cheese!
“A plea agreement is nothing. That don’t mean you snitched. He could possibly snitch, but he could possibly finesse. For instance, I take a plea agreement but I’m willing to testify,” he said at the time. “I could get up there and cap. I could get up there and say, ‘I was scared. I don’t know what y’all talking about. I just wanted to get out.’”
Kev continued: “I don’t think he’s a snitch because he just took a plea agreement… We would only know if he’s a snitch depending [on] what he will get on the stand and say. And we have to let Thug get out.”
