Things are not perfect in the Cash Money family. Earlier today, Turk, one of the founding members of the Hot Boyz, released a video and an Instagram post calling out Juvenile, Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh, along with Cash Money founders Birdman and Ronald “Slim” Williams, for failing to support him in a time of need. The video he posted finds the rapper making a simple confessional to the camera, explaining that he reached out to the men on multiple occasions after his father passed away and heard nothing back. “This is the last straw,” he says in the video.
In the video and in an Instrgram post, Turk claims that he hasn’t received any financial support from his friends to pay for his father’s funeral and that he found himself in similar circumstances back in 2010 when his younger brother was killed. “Me and my family are gonna get through this together,” he says in the clip. “I appreciate everybody that is there for me. And whoever not, who say they gonna be, it is what it is. Time reveals every man.”
Turk served over eight years in prison after being found guilty of shooting members of the Memphis, Tennessee S.W.A.T. team during a 2004 raid, but he was released in 2012. At the time of his release he was on relatively good terms with his former Cash Money associates. “I’ve talked to Baby on several occasions while I was incarcerated,” he told XXL in an interview following his release. “I’ve talked to Lil Wayne. Wayne sent me money.”
According to this new video, the two are not as close as they used to be. This incident comes mere months after the Hot Boyz reunited for 2 Chainz’s video for “Used 2″ back in September. Watch Turk’s video above and check out his Instagram post below.
