R. City aka Rock City are airing out their former label boss Akon. After five years, eight mixtapes, and a collection of hits written for artists including Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, and R. Kelly, the singing-songwriting duo were never given a release date for their album on Konvict Records/Interscope.
So they launched a public campaign called PTFAO (Put the F**king Album Out), and after two years of campaigning, Akon met with the Virgin Islands natives in March and offered them the option of staying with him or being released from their contract. They opted for the latter and are now independently prepping their debut Free at Last on their own label Rebelution Records, featuring the first single “We On.”
They don’t hold back when addressing the split on one of the cuts, “Dark Cloud.” “What’s a label when your CEO is an artist whose only obvious motive is focusing on his own shit?” they ask. “Now all that man really cares about is getting laid and thinks that he’s invincible because he hella paid.”
Listen to them go rogue below.
