A Brooklyn concert promoter says that Cam’ron shorted him $7,000 with a no-show performance.
According to HipHopWired, party promoter Lou Galluch alleges that the Dipset emcee accepted money to perform at his Annual New Year’s Eve party “The Shanks,” but never showed up. Galluch says that as a result he lost a total of $7,000.
According to Galluch, he was able to book Killa Cam for the event for a modest $8,000 through a mutual contact. One day before the party, Galluch’s contact had to leave town on family business and referred him to DJ Moe Sticky to complete the business deal.
Here is what Galluch had to tell the Village Voice about the transaction:
“So I meet [Moe Sticky] that next day [Sunday], and I said, ‘Bring the signed contracts and I’ll give you the money,'” He shows up with no contracts, and I have the money. This is the day before New Year’s, everything is happening. Promotion has gone out, pre-sales are coming in…and they show up with no contracts…[my original contact says,] ‘Yeah, [Cam’ron]’s gonna show, give [Moe] the money.'”
Lou then allegedly handed DJ Moe Sticky $3,000 cash.
Galluch claims that Cam’ron was supposed to hit the stage at 3 AM; however, the venue wasn’t full at the time, and he requested that Cam wait until 4:30 AM to perform. DJ Moe Sticky reportedly agreed to the new terms, but only if Galluch fronted him another $2,000 of the performance money.
When it came time for the rapper to hit the stage, however, Galluch claims that Cam’ron, DJ Moe Sticky and company bailed with cash in hand.
Moe Sticky has also shared his side of the story. The DJ claims that Galluch was supposed to give him the rest of the money prior to the performance, but only had $2,000 at the time. Moe added that the initial $3,000 was part of of a standard $4,000 deposit for Cam’s performance.
As of now no lawsuit has been filed, more as the story develops.
