FN Meka's problems didn't go away when Capitol Records pulled the plug on the controversial project -- the Black rapper whose voice was used for Meka has started the process to take legal action against the creators.
Kyle The Hooligan says FN Meka's creators stole his drip to create the character, and he's ready to see 'em in court. Kyle tells TMZ Hip Hop ... his attorneys already started the legalprocess to recoup his damages from both Brandon Le and Factory New this week.
He also claims he gave them all the "cool" ideas, and would've prevented hiccups like the police brutality photo from even happening.
When asked about an Instagram image of FN Meka being beaten by a police officer, Martini said: “Some of the early content, now if you take it out of context, it obviously looks worse or different than it was intended.” Their Instagram is now private. pic.twitter.com/uE6tTPCdPW
Kyle's attorney, Andrew Orcutt tells TMZ, "Despite multiple requests, we have not received a response from or been put in contact with Factory New’s or Brandon Le’s legal representatives, nor have we received any formal offer for compensation. We are continuing to evaluate our options and are hopeful for a swift and just resolution to this matter.”
Kyle raps for real, not just virtually, and saw the digital rapper horizon as a way for artists to expand their careers and portfolios -- but now he wants his case to shine a light on anyone else who's been ghosted in the music industry.
We reached out to Factory New for their side of their story, so far no word back. FN Meka too, but we know he's no longer talking!
