Gucci Mane

Concert Booker Vs. Rapper

You Double Crossed Us!

Gucci Mane
tried to pull a fast one and perform two gigs in one night -- in two different states -- so says the pissed off concert promoter, who's suing the alleged two-timing rapper.

Empire Entertainment filed a lawsuit against Gucci -- real name Radric Davis -- claiming it paid him $22,500 to perform in Little Rock, Arkansas on November 22nd ... but didn't get their money's worth. Here's why:

Empire says prior to the gig, a nightclub in Tennessee began advertising a Gucci show for the same night -- and says Gucci himself promoted it on Twitter.

Empire says it called Gucci's people -- who assured them, no TN gig was happening.

But the night of the concert, Empire says it became clear Gucci's people lied ... claiming the rapper only performed 3 songs (15 min of stage time) and then hightailed it 138 miles to perform at the other club. Then drove back to stay in the hotel Empire provided.

Empire says Gucci's 2nd gig torpedoed their ticket sales. The company is suing for breach of contract and fraud. It wants all the cash it spent on his fee, hotel, travel and promotions.

I'm sure the guy has a following because someone is willing to put up performance money for him but if I was willing to put out good coin for some guy who called himself Gucci Mane I'd deserve to get ripped off just on principle.

i mean come on. these dudes are ALWAYS HIGH. you can't seriously 'book some proper appointment venue' and really expect everything to run perfect. you probably have to make sure they they weren't on some 8 day joint binge when you booked them, and they were riding green elephants on purple clouds.

All of these corny rappers want to be Italian, gangsters, or Italian gangsters. Gucci Mane -how original. Irv Gotti, young Gotti, versace song, and the list goes on.

Look at this loser. Probably has been having women give him money all his stupid life and has NO sense of financial responsibility. This is real life dummy, time to pay up.

Common "Rapper" behavior, to accept payment and not show for a gig.
A sense of honor and honesty is unknown to these "people."

What a creep. But this clown shouldn't have one show a night. Why did he have two?

Ok so if I read correctly he did perform at his scheduled gig but " only performed 3 songs" well unless the contract is really specific about the number of songs to be performed and/or time on stage then those folks in Arkansas are ass out. What's wrong with an entertainer multi tasking? Smh
