Lloyd Scraps Deal With Irv Gotti, Inc After Troubled Past

Lloyd has scrapped his business relationship with Irv Gotti and The Inc (formerly Murder Inc). In a two part video released this week Lloyd says “I’m happy to say I worked out my own release. I have no regrets, and even if I did, it’s about learning to live with them. I look at it as a learning experience … but I won’t really dwell on the past. I will always look forward to the future.” Before he takes hold of his future, which includes the new single “Pusha,” Lloyd decided to clear the air about his past at the Inc — a past his manager says was full of challenges. “(I) tried to work with this rubble that I was given and build something out of it,” Lloyd says of the label’s condition during his stint. “I was forced to record my own music, with my own money with my own friends.. while I was still under contract. All I had was me and my management and my friends.” “We tried to create a buzz around the industry with a song called “You” with Lil Wayne. This was a song I need to be released (sic). At the time I had no support from my label. I was advised to not release these records and sometimes my phone calls would not be returned,” Lloyd alleges after telling the interviewing party that his family had been displaced as a result of Hurricane Katrina, prior to the release of “You”. “Based off the success of this record Irv and the Inc was able to go out and secure distribution from Universal, which in return kind of forced me to stay where I was”. Moving forward, Lloyd says he looks forward to working with other parties outside the Inc and looks at the situation as a learning experience. “I look at it as a learning experience … but I won’t really dwell on the past. I will always look forward to the future.” Watch Lloyd’s video HERE.
