Brymo Takes Chocolate City Legal Battle to Twitter Again | “Audu Has Been Calling and Threatening Everyone Who Wants to Work with Me”

Share

Brymo continues his legal battle on twitter rather than retaining the services of an attorney or other applicable professional to resolve his issues in a court of law, or appropriate forum. He took to twitter to essentially report Chocolate City to the world earlier today. You can read some of his tweets below. Okay, assuming his statements are true, what exactly does he want us to do? Stop Chocolate City? If so, how? Artists, especially if you read AML, please don’t embarrass yourselves like this.

By the way, his statement on who is responsible for suing is wrong.

You don’t always have to wait for life to happen to you, then you play defense. You can make life happen by playing offense, especially if you see life bringing trouble that presumably you did not ask for or cause.
You can sue the potential Plaintiff of a potential lawsuit or legal problem you want to go away, just like Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke and many more have, in an action asking for “Declatory Relief or Declaratory Judgment.” This means you go on the offense and ask the court to declare that you have not breached the contract the potential Plaintiff is claiming; and do not owe the Plaintiff nothing. If you prevail, the court judgment is what you use to negate persons who may be misinformed about your alleged breach.

Again, Brymo needs to grow up. I don’t know why he thinks this method is okay. Clearly it is not working and he is succeeding in making a nuisance of himself on twitter. Does he have someone who can pull him to the side to advise him? What about his managers? He really needs to calm down, get off twitter, strategize and think straight.

If an artiste refuses to honor his/her contract, it’s the duty of the label to sue.. I cannot sue you for breaching your own contract..
