Chief Keef’s FilmOn Label Files $1 Million Lawsuit Against Glo Gang Management, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven and More



Chief Keef’s relationship with Alki David and FilmOn continues to worsen. David has filed a $1 million against Glo Gang management for the release of unauthorized music, according to the court documents obtained by Hip Hops Revival. David names multiple parties in the suit, including Sosa’s manager Peeda Pan, manager Brandon Zehrer, Zaytoven, Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital and more. The suit cites numerous reasons for the suit, including breach of contract.

FilmOn found issue with Sosa releasing “Finally Rollin 2” and “ “Nobody Pt. 2”. FilmOn additionally listed DJ Holiday in the suit for hosting FR2.



Chief Keef claims he didn’t sign off on “Nobody Part 2.” Producer 12 Million, who executive produced the project, is responsible for dropping the project without Sosa’s permission.

“That nobody 2 sh*t is fake I didn’t drop that’s Unauthorized business again n***s out here inese streets trippin! I got a fat a-- 223!” Sosa wrote on Twitter.



The suit states Chief Keef signed a two-year contract with “options” on May 1 with FilmOn agreeing to render “entertainment services,” including, but not limited to, recording, publishing, merchandise rights and live performances.

HUF was listed as a defendant in the suit for selling Glo Gang merchandise with Sosa.



FilmOn is also suing Sosa’s team for allowing him to go on his unauthorized Camp Glo tour.







FilmOn states in the suit that the company has been “damaged in that it has lost income, revenue, royalties, and fees that it would have received for the Chief Keef recordings, merchandise, and performances under the agreement, all to plaintiff’s damage in an amount of not less than $1,000,000.”

FilmOn, according to suit, argues the defendants “acted with oppression, fraud, and malice,” which justifies the awarding of punitive damages.

David warned he would sue Sosa’s team for repeated violations in early December during an interview with VladTV. This came after David suspended Sosa’s contract for going on the Camp Glo tour.

“I will continue working with him,” David said. “His management is his choice but that doesn’t stop me from suing the hell out of them and everyone that has worked with Keith during our contract.”

David also issued a statement to Billboard about the current standing of Keef’s FilmOnTV deal:

“Keef has a seven-album 360 deal with FilmOnTV. We are committed to making his career the best that it can be. We also have about 70 new songs recorded. A lot of these are major bangers. His management needs to understand that we could sell this package to someone else then they will have to deal less loving attitudes.”

Alki repossessed the 2015 BMW i8 he gifted Sosa on his 20th birthday after the suspension was announced. The MRSP for Sosa’s i8 was $135,700.

“Chief Keef’s contract was suspended 2 weeks ago because his management went off and did a tour without our approval,” Alki said in a statement. “Not happy with the direction they are taking him. Same sh*t over and over. Limiting his appeal to a wider audience and I’m not saying he should sell out, just be more prolific.”
