Recently we were contacted by Hip Hop Artist Mz. Nicky’s team, who stated that she had a horrible experience with member of the Hustle Gang label. She alleged that she paid to do a song with Shad Da God, Banditgang Marco, Young Dro, Young Thug & T.I., but never received the Masters or the Video she was promised. Read more into the interview as she explains in her own words, what really went down.
Hello Mz. Nicky. Thank you for taking the time to talk with us. Let’s jump right in.
You have a hard working track record, how long have you been in the industry?
I’ve been in this industry since 2009, I did music with Mia X of No Limit, Young Bleed of No Limit, and Shawna of DTP.
You have worked with some major figures in this business, what was the motivation to go that direction?
Motivation is always having a strong networking relationship with others that will help elevate me to the next level of making wise business decisions. I believe that will raise me to a higher platform of respect and a recognition as a female MC.
The industry has given a lot of artist ups and down. You recently went through a situation with some major artist, can you explain the situation?
Yes, the industry is shady and cut throat in my situation. I paid for major multiple features on my new single titled “Add little purple.” I did my part of business and never received my masters or the video that corresponds with my song. I’ve gotten the run around no calls back or emails. So this forced me to go public.
Seems like that situation dragged out a bit. Please tell us what was the final moment you felt it wasn’t going to work out?
When someone for the hustle gang was acting as if they were a part of T.I.’s management and the team apologized to me that they had been busy and wanted to assure me that I would be flown down and they would pay for hotel and arrange for us to shoot a group scene to add to my video. We signed paperwork to clear everything so I could move to start making money and promoting. However, I got hustled out of extra money and they never sent my session files.
At this point what are you hoping will happen to resolve it?
I am hoping to receive all my session files and the full video along with the group scene. I know that now I’ve decided to move forward and go public, they will view me differently. So being compensated and to receive a sincere apologize would right the wrongs and make us all money to continue to feed all our families.
What’s your next move as an artist?
My next move is to take my story public and inform others how independent artist are being treated and what we go through. To continue to make great music that everyone can relate, listen to, vibe to, and share similarities with.
What did you learn that you would advice others to be aware of?
I would to advise others to seek a lawyer before any money is handled to any artist. Always do your research on people , so many of them are running successful scams on others.
Would you ever work with another top artist again?
I would work with anyone who makes great music. If someone wants to work with me, I’m always open to work when it comes to music and money.
How can people find you on social media?
