Things are heating up.
Last month, news broke that Kane Brown was being sued by his former producer Jamal Jones, AKA Polow da Don, for breach on contract. Jones alleged that Kane’s 2015 record deal with Sony Nashville violated a contract that he had with Brown.
According to the Tennessean, Brown fired back with a 51-page counterclaim, alleging that Jones “is unsatisfied with the millions of dollars in royalties, revenue and income he has made off of Kane Brown’s hard work” and “fraudulently induced Mr. Brown into signing a lopsided recording agreement in 2015 and repeatedly misled Mr. Brown and others to protect it.”
Brown also states that the two parties entered into another agreement with Brown’s label in 2016 that supersedes the 2015 deal at issue in this lawsuit.
As a law school dropout, here’s my expert legal opinion… never enter into a contract with someone that calls themselves Polow da Don, you’re just asking for trouble. Stay tuned for more expert analysis from the Whiskey Riff legal correspondents. We’ll closely monitor this riveting legal battle.
In the meantime, more 90’s country.
