Rapper B.o.B., Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr., is being sued by his former managers, Round Hill Music and Artists Rights Management, for $3 million in unpaid royalties. Currently, an independent artist, B.o.B., “allegedly violated a deal with the companies after refusing to hand over royalties for public performances from some of his tracks dating back to 2017.”
“I have not seen the lawsuit but am aware my former manager had entered into agreements without my knowledge,” said B.o.B, “I take my business seriously and look forward to getting to the truth of what happened.”
“I feel like it’s all a part of the story, man, you known? Doing mixtapes, open mics, albums, going through different phases, playing the guitar, performing with a live band, dancers, background singers, to coming back and being able to cross back over and do club, urban music,” he said. “I mean, it’s all a part of the story. I embrace it all. It’s funny ’cause it’s all aligning, stories lining up, but you can’t mastermind everything. You gotta kinda just go with the journey.”
