Everybody’s got a hustle, and Lil Scrappy found himself the victim of a small time hustle last Sunday.
Apparently Scrappy had been booked by a concert promoter to perform at Club Vizion in Louisville, KY. Scrappy should have been suspicious from the gate that someone was offering to fly him out to do a show in KY; because when he arrived, he was told that the promoter didn’t have the money to pay him!
Understandably, Scrappy’s next move was to refuse to perform. This standoff continued, while an unknowing crowd was showing up for the concert, until the concert promoter relented and offered to pay Scrappy a much smaller amount of money to do a meet and greet with the crowd instead. Scrappy agreed and did the meet and greet.
You would think that would have been the end of the story, as Scrappy did. So imagine his surprise when he returned to his hotel at the end of the night…to find out the concert promoter had CANCELLED his reservation!
Scrappy must have not had the funds to foot the bill himself, because he was told to vacate the hotel. A source at the hotel says cops were called to make sure Scrappy left quietly, but the rapper denies that any cops were involved, and says he bounced on his own.
That’s a cold piece of work.
Scrappy says he was humiliated by the experience and plans to sue the promotor. I’m surprised he didn’t try “to put the paws on him!”
