Hitt Afta Hitt’s Johnnie Cabbell Responds To Rapper Gucci Mane’s Jail Announcement
Gucci Mane’s former booking agency, Hitt Afta Hitt, responds to Gucci Mane’s jailhouse announcement about him cutting all ties with the company as well as So Icey Entertainment.
Johnnie Cabbell, the owner of the booking agency Hitt Afta Hitt, has responded to Gucci announcement of him severing all ties with Cabbell and his company, as reported on HipHopRX.com.
Gucci Mane released a statement from prison on May 4th announcing that he has dropped his old label So Icey Entertainment as well as severing all ties with manager Debra Antney of Mizay Entertainment and Cabbellâ€™s Hitt Afta Hitt booking agency to develop his new label 1017 Brick Squad Records.
In a statement that was released to AllHipHop, Cabbell is claiming that he has yet to receive some sort of correspondence from Gucci Mane or his legal team as of press time to support the claim.
“While it is being widely reported that my booking agency Hitt Afta Hitt is no longer working with Gucci Mane, I have yet to receive any type of correspondence from Gucci, the label or anyone else that supports that. I have known and worked with Gucci for over a decade. I have seen his career grow from being a local phenomenon into a household name and I feel like I helped play a minor role in his success.”
Cabbell also addressed the rumors of pending lawsuits against him and his company and that he is still the official booker for Nicki Manaj.
“There are no federal criminal or civil lawsuits pending against me or my company Hitt Afta Hitt.,” Johnnie Cabbell told AllHipHop.com. “My booking and management agency is still one of the largest in the south and we are still the official booker for rapper Nicki Minaj. We look forward to continued success and growth.”
But wait! If Cabbell claims there are no pending lawsuits against him then why are there reports of two lawsuits?
According to AllHipHop.com, Shaâ€™Nod Johnson filed a breach of contract complaint against Cabbell and Shawty Lo for allegedly failing to honor a contractual agreement not to perform two weeks before, or two weeks after his event.
As well as, on April 10th, All Hood Entertainment filed a lawsuit against Gucci Mane, Mizay and Hitt Afta Hitt, claiming Gucci missed a show in Louisville, KY in November of 2009, resulting in a $61,000 dollar loss, as reported on HipHopRx.com.
