Former Bad Boy Recording artist, Ma$e has been incredibly vocal about his contempt for Diddy’s business practices over the years. However, Fivio Foreign thinks Ma$e is the one who could use some lessons as well, especially when it comes to contracts.
Fivio Foreign Unhappy
While making an appearance on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, the drill rapper suggested that he was under a questionable contract with Ma$e’s RichFish Records. Though Foreign has usually been silent on the subject, he explained to co-hosts Gillie Da Kid and Wallo that a friend of his brought him to Ma$e and pressured him into signing the paperwork.
“The n-gga that brought me to him, he was like, ‘Yo, man. Just sign that shit. You bugging,’” he explained. “I’m like, ‘Yeah, read it.’ He’s like, ‘Alright, just sign it. It’s good,’ so I just signed it,” he explained. “Advance was $5,000.”
At the time, Foreign considered $5,000 to be a lot of money. He added, “I thought that shit was going to last until whenever it was going to last. That shit ain’t last two weeks […] Ma$e know the business. He really know the business a lot. I didn’t know nothing.”
Foreign then accused Ma$e of “fake explaining” how the money would be divided. However, he ultimately determined, “I’m in a better situation now. He gets what he gets, like, whatever he gets but I control all my money and shit like that.”
A lot has changed for Fivio Foreign since signing the contract. He rose to fame in 2019 with his hit single, ‘Big Drip’ which was later remixed by Atlanta natives Lil Baby and Quavo. In 2020 Foreign would make his first Billboard-charting effort when he was featured on Drake’s song ‘Demons’.
Fivio’s Big Success
Later in 2020, Foreign collaborated with Lil Tjay and Pop Smoke on the song ‘Zoo York’ which peaked at No. 65 on the Billboard Hot 100. In August 2021, Foreign landed a feature on Kanye West’s single ‘Off The Grid’ from the Donda album.
Fivio Foreign’s debut album B.I.B.L.E. was released in April and had features from superstars such as Quavo, Alicia Keys, Queen Naija, Chloe, A$AP Rocky, Polo G, and Ne-Yo, among others. Along with other, Kanye West, Dem Jointz, The Chainsmokers, and Mike Dean produced the album.
