Whether it’s no-shows from Nas and Rick Ross or impostors pretending to be MF DOOM, there are countless horror stories of live Hip Hop shows gone awry. Now, according to HipHopWired, one Brooklyn promoter says Cam’ron stood him up at a performance to the tune of $7,000.
Lou Galluch, a party promoter based in Brooklyn, alleges that the Dipset emcee accepted money to perform at Galluch’s annual New Year’s Eve party “The Shanks,” but never showed. Galluch says that he lost a total of $7,000 over the failed performance.
According to Galluch, he was able to book Cam’ron for the event for $8,000 through a mutual contact. However, one day before the party, Galluch’s contact had to leave town on family business and referred him to Cam’s DJ Moe Sticky to complete the business deal.
“So I meet [Moe Sticky] that next day [Sunday], and I said, ‘Bring the signed contracts and I’ll give you the money,’” Galluch told the Village Voice. “He shows up with no contracts, and I have the money. This is the day before New Year’s, everything is happening. Promotion has gone out, pre-sales are coming in…and they show up with no contracts…[my original contact says,] ‘Yeah, [Cam'ron]‘s gonna show, give [Moe] the money.’”
