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.

TRANSLATED: Well, you already know how those ghetto rapper types are... they want the job but they don't want to work... so this Scraps person and his promoter essentially wizened out of doing the concert after being paid.

These rappers and ball players are a social experiment in throwing money at stupid does not pull the ghetto out of people. I mean the people out of ghettos. After a couple generations of that mentality and it seeps into their genes.

So this azz has no money of his own??? If this is true, why didn't he pull out the wads of money they use in the club, get a plane and fly his azz home? Totally USELESS

SEE, THESE YOUNG PUNKS NEVER LEARN FROM THEIR ELDERS... BACK IN THE DAY PEEPS LIKE ARETHA FRANKLIN, JOAN RIVERS, ET ALL WERE GETTING SCREWED BY PROMOTERS ALL THE F*CKIN TIME. THAT'S WHY YOU ALWAYS TAKE 50% UPFRONT AND A LIST OF CONDITIONS BEFORE THE DATE. NO MONEY NO TALK. BUT SCRAPPY IS STILL A PUNK ASS... #TRUTH!!

His rap career was basically over when it started. He hasn't had a hit in years. He sucks!
