Frustrated with release date delays and an ongoing management dispute, Ski Mask The Slump God leaked his highly anticipated Beware The Book of Eli mixtape.
According to an Instagram Live video from the South Florida artist, the tape was continuously pushed back by his manager Shiv due to the rapper’s desire to cut ties after its release.
“He knows that I’ve been planning on firing his ass after my tape drops,” Ski Mask said. “He keeps pushing my tape back because he knows that I’m going to fire his ass.”
Ski Mask then announced he’d leak his mixtape if he got 40,000 comments on an Instagram post. Fans quickly met this mark and the mixtape was released on SoundCloud before being taken down by management, according to Ski Mask.
The Members Only artist confirmed he has officially cut ties with his management team and is working with his lawyers to resolve the situation. The 18-track project is now scheduled to drop on May 11. It features contributions from Offset, Rich The Kid, Timbaland and more.
