Joyner Lucas Says Record Label Falsely Promised Cardi B, Bruno Mars Collabs

Joyner Lucas reflects on his time with Atlantic Records, expressing deep regret and disappointment over what he describes as empty promises made by the major record label. In a recent interview on Math Hoffa's "My Expert Opinion," Joyner and his manager Drew recounted their experience of being courted by Atlantic before signing in 2016. They claim that they faced delays in getting paid, with the money trickling in slowly and not meeting expectations.

Despite his initial excitement at signing with Atlantic, Joyner released only one project with the label before leaving a few years later. He now alleges that the recruitment process by Atlantic involved deceptive tactics, making false promises of collaborations with big stars like Cardi B, Ed Sheeran, and Bruno Mars that never materialized.

Joyner has since collaborated with artists like Eminem, J. Cole, and Chris Brown, none of whom are signed to Atlantic. The rapper's experiences raise questions about the music industry and the prevalence of misleading record deals, prompting artists like Meek Mill to advocate for fairer agreements.
