Bobby Shmurda Claims He's Not Getting Paid For His Shows

By HHL Editors

Bobby Shmurda just turned 20 and is signed to major record label Epic. Everything should be rosy for the 'Hot Nigga' star on the financial front.

But it turns out the Brooklyn emcee has problems beyond his beef with the cops and impending gun charges. Shumrda has been all over the place doing shows -- including closing out the Hip Hop Awards last night -- but apparently he hasn't been getting paid for them.

Shmurda took to Instagram to complain that all of his Shmoneying in concert isn't bringing in any green.

"Nah idgaf I’m doing all theses show not getting ma money dey got me doing shit every fucking day so its hard to keep up Witt dis shit den I ain't got nobody to trust ain't no help in dis bitch I’m ready to go back to da trap be4 jail #RNS dats how I feel foh."
As is starting to become a tradition with social media complaints about your record label, Shmurda soon deleted the message. Of course nothing on the Internet is ever really deleted.

Rumor is Shmurda signed a 360 deal with Epic, meaning they get a percentage of all of his income, including live shows. That may be what Shumrda is complaining about in his deleted message.

Do you think Shmurda just didn't bother to read his contract? Or is he a young artist being legitimately exploited?
