But on Thursday night, he took one step ahead and wrote a detailed note about why he wants his label to let him go. Bobby claims Epic has been stopping him from releasing music, most particularly his album which is already finished. “I got a 70-year-old lady running my label. I love her dearly but doesn’t want to let me go at alllllllllll no matter what I do. I’ve been signed to them since I was 19 I did six years in jail trying to get off this label before I came home,” he wrote in the note — the lady referred to being Sylvia Rhone, 69, the chair and chief executive of Epic.
“I did six years in jail trying to get off this label before I came home,” he continued. “You name one person in the industry a label keeps signed in jail for six years?????? Yeah [I know] I made them more millions than they ever gave me!”

In September, he dropped his comeback single ‘No Time for Sleep Freestyle‘ and then offered another new song called ‘Cartier Lens‘ in October, both of which sort of came and went. Late in December after saying he’s not in control of his music, he dropped another single called ‘Shmoney‘ with Quavo & Rowdy Rebel.
