Pusha T Calls Out False Promoter On Twitter
Pusha T warns fans of a fake meet-and-greet.
Numerous artists use Twitter to promote their upcoming shows and other events.
Others also use Twitter to allow fans know when false promoters are scamming fans.
Recently, Pusha T fell into the latter group, calling out a person who allegedly set up fake meet-and-greets.
I love my family (not fans) too much to ever charge them 75-100 dollars for a meet and greet... Nothing but love for Orlando.— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) December 14, 2013
Pusha continued, telling fans that charging them to meet him would be petty.
I don't charge family to meet me...u buy my albums, u come to my shows...you've done enough. I've never been that petty to charge to meet u.— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) December 14, 2013
Please don't fall for the scam...— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) December 14, 2013
Pusha T took particular offense to the scam because of his own personal history:
I've been broke, I've robbed, even kicked in houses...I never wanna see that side again, trust me, I'd never rob a fan for 100 dollar money.— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) December 14, 2013
Goodnight Orlando...see u tomorrow Tampa. #ItsAllLove— PUSHA T (@PUSHA_T) December 14, 2013
In a recent interview with HipHopDX, Pusha T spoke to HipHopDX about that personal history, explaining that he never had a "good reason" for hustling. "Mine was just built off of greed, wrong decisions and wrong choices," he said. "So I never had those… I never had those great reasons. That’s why I just tell you my mentality, so you know what I’m saying and what I was thinking at the moment. You don’t have to agree with what I was thinking, and I probably don’t agree with what I was thinking at the moment. But as long as you can see from point A to point Z, you should understand it."
