Jaheim’s Label Woes: “They Promised Me So Much Just to Get Me to Sign”

In a series of tweets, Jaheim shared the pitfalls of his record deal and business practices that resulted in decreases in his bank account. The major issue that caused him the loss of money was several promises made him verbally were written into the legal contract signed by both parties. “So people the lesson learned was never trust no one verbally make sure that shit is on paper” stated Jaheim.

He switched record labels moving from Warner Brothers to Atlantic records in 2007 to release ‘The Making of a Man.’ The album was certified gold by the RIAA. His latest album ‘Appreciation Day’ however did not earn the same commercial success.

The “Age Ain't A Factor” singer has become a free agent since leaving Atlantic Records, and without the major label support Jaheim claims that he earned his biggest pay. “And for the record I'm not mad at nothing I'm enjoying my life I've had a better career then those at the top today In my beginning.”

He views his past as a lesson for his future. “In my beginning, They all struggle to get where they are today I guess without the struggle is no success!”
