Pusha T is reportedly the target of a lawsuit from Miami nightclub Cameo over lost revenue, according to a September TMZ report.
The rapper addresses the case in “Lunch Money,” the Kanye West-produced song he released yesterday (November 18). “You might have caught me on TMZ,” the Virginia Beach, Virginia artist raps on the song. “Cameo tryin’ to sue a nigga / Fuck ‘em ‘cause I party hard like there’s three of me.”
“According to a lawsuit filed in Miami, the rapper agreed to do an appearance at Cameo nightclub on August 16 — and part of the deal banned him from appearing at any other clubs within 30 miles of Miami-Dade County within 15 days … before or after his Cameo gig,” TMZ reports.
Pusha T allegedly violated the terms of this agreement by appearing at Dream Nightclub on August 15 to attend a celebrity basketball game.
TMZ reports that Cameo claims this appearance cost them sales and revenue.
“They claim Pusha’s double cross — intentional or not — cost them $13,000 in sales … cause who wants to see Pusha T on consecutive nights?” TMZ reports.
HHDX staff reaction to the single is as follows:
“When you think Pusha T you can’t help but summon his famous ‘ugh,’ HipHopDX staff reacts in an article posted today (November 19). ”As a gruff reminder of his standing as the semi-bourgeois, elder prince of Rap, he fumbled into the digital wilds yesterday his first piece of music for what feels like his second solo studio album ‘King Push.’ It’s called ‘Lunch Money,’ and it features Push’ bullying his way through that metaphor over a beat from the end of the world. “
Pusha T’s solo debut album, My Name Is My Name, was released October 2013 via Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music.
