On Monday, Fif called out his Power co-star over an outstanding $300,000. 50 shared a number of Instagram posts stating Rotimi is now in a position to pay back the money, as his new album Walk With Me is leading the charts.
"I want to punch this n***a nose 👊🤨," 50 wrote. "@Rotimi got the #1 RNB album time to pay me on gang."
Rotimi claimed he didn't owe 50 any cash, and suggested he was simply being targeted because of his album's success. The G-Unit boss was like: Nah. You do owe and you need to pay up.
On Thursday, Rotimi took a moment to discuss the financial dispute with TMZ, revealing the situation was a bit more complicated than a straight-forward personal loan. Rotimi told the outlet he had signed to G-Unit on 2014, but asked to be relieved from his contract after a disagreement over about the single "Love Riddim."
"So I asked him, 'Can I get out of my deal?' And he said, 'Yes. I'm not going to hold you back. But there's business,'" Rotimi recalled, before briefly explaining the terms of the agreement. "I paid an upfront sum (to get out of my contract) and everything else would be through mechanical sales or royalty and everything."
Rotimi then said he believes 50 wants the best for him, and that he may have just been in a "bad mood" when he called him out on social media. He then revealed he had paid off a large portion of the debt on Thursday after speaking to Fif about the situation.
"Because it is my brother, instead of waiting for royalties, and I am able to pay, I gave him $100,000," Rotimi said. "[...] We're good. We're good."
50 shared a clip of the TMZ interview on Instagram, with the caption: "I have no problem with @Rotimi in fact I wish him and his family the best God bless. POSITIVE VIBES."
