Several months ago, K. Michelle caused a stir when she backed out of a show rather than open for fellow R&B singer Lyfe Jennings. During a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, K. Michelle admitted she was wrong for not performing, but added that “They didn’t even have Lyfe Jennings on the flyers…I should have went on but I was like, ‘Damn, we didn’t know you was out [of jail], bruh.’”
Lyfe Jennings didn’t take too kindly to that statement. The singer/songwriter blasted K. Michelle via Twitter.
” Doesnt Kmichell relize that everytime she talks bad about Lyfe her fan base goes down…Next time u do an interview in NY go to their web site and see what their listeners are sayin about ur words on Lyfe,” he tweeted. “But ima keep bein me and not say nothin negative. Cause i know once love and hiphop is over humbleness will b swift.”
“What’s so funny is I get calls for shows with K and I turn em ALL down. And no one has went on without me,” he went on. “And to any promoter: stop callin me i will not do a show with KMichelle on the bill. If shes involved i wont be. Dont need the drama.”
“Yaw dont be fooled by the musicians with 5 -600k followers cause they buyin them… #thirsty. They even got teams of inturns to comment good things on interview sites to make u think people really like them..#fake,” his tirade continued. “Ima give yall the game on this biz foreal… Thats why its kinda good people not buyin records nomore because ur only gonna buy who you love.”
“Musicans fake like they got alotta money cause they think yawll will wanna be apart of that. All those clothes cars and jewlery is rented,” he ranted. “They gettin at the most 100k (if that) in signing bonuses. 25k to the lawyer 20% to manager then 25% taxes = 40k to last a yr. Name 5 musicians that u still love that have been around 10yrs…”
