And Humiliated Me

Lil Scrappy
 says he was left with no money and no roof over his head after a concert promoter screwed him over ... on a messed up night that culminated with police intervention.

Scrappy tells TMZ, he was scheduled to perform at Club Vizion Sunday in Louisville, KY, but when he showed up to do the show -- the promoter didn't have the money to pay him ... so Scrappy refused to take the stage.

Crowds of people had already shown up for the performance -- so Scrappy says the club owner paid the rapper a small sum to do a meet-and-greet instead of a show ... and Scrappy agreed.

When all was said and done, Scrappy says he went back to the hotel the promoter had arranged for him -- but the hotel informed him his reservation had been canceled and he was required to vacate.

A source at the hotel says cops were called to assist in Scrappy's removal -- but the rapper says he left voluntarily.

Scrappy tells TMZ, he has no plans to sue the promoter -- but vows never to work with him again

The promoter had no comment.

Lil Scrappy?? This would make a good name for a dog! How do these rappers come up with such ridiculous names?

This is what happens when you deal in "hood contracts". If Scrappy had real legit management he wouldn't be in this predicament. Why didn't he use his LHHATL money to keep the room until the his flight left. Why didn't Momma Dee warn her "Prince of the South" of street con artists after all,she claims she knows the streets and would do anything to protect him? Just a bunch of silly rabbits and in that order.

So... lil twerp got a "rapper's" treatment from a promoter?
My guess is he got what he deserves, It seems to me it would take a lot to "humiliate" a "rapper."
That might be hare to prove.

BeastMode Ent paid their half upfront. It was the club owner who didnt pay and had him kicked out of the hotel. The club owner wasnt happy about the turn out that showed up to see Scrappy (little to none) and refused to pay because he was loosing.

Scrappy has been around long enough to hopefully had his contracts in order so should be no issue the promotor must pay and if not will be sued promptly. Wish they put the promotors name out so other artists know a con man by name.

How can a grown man who is referred to as "Lil Scrappy" honestly be humiliated by anything?
