Rapper Plane Jaymes Claims Yo Gotti’s Label Reps Shunned Him for Being Gay
Rapper and singer Plane Jaymes has made music with Blac Youngsta, G-Eazy, Yo Gotti and more but according to the Pennsylvania native, after Gotti and his affiliate Keon discovered he was gay, Gotti and his Collective Music Group will no longer put any of his music out.
Jaymes made the claim on social media, posting a lengthy message on Instagram on Wednesday (Sept. 5). "@yogotti You said you believed in me and wanted to help me change ppls lives for the better. Up until you & @keonn55 found out I had a boyfriend," he wrote in the caption of a number of photos of him, Gotti and other associates.
"But the fact that me being gay is why y’all no longer wanted me apart of the team is honestly fucked up," Jaymes continued, adding that Keon told him to take the photos down so they would be "comfortable."
The rapper goes on to claim that the "1942" rhymer and his team won't put out any of his music and that he's stuck with CMG unless they release him from his contract. Unfortunately for Jaymes, the artist claims he's had no luck getting in touch with Gotti and his camp.
"Y’all won’t put my music out but I’m still stuck in that contract I signed w #CMG which says y’all own the rights to pretty much all my publishing & everything I do unless y’all terminate that contract," he wrote. "Can’t reach y’all thru phone/email & that ain’t been working for over 2yrs so if I’m 'canceled / shelved' & not family like y’all said I was, all because I’m gay then what’s the deal."
Jaymes ended his post by highlighting the struggle he's been going through and even said he may not be releasing any music out again. "Tired of struggling all because of who I chose to love. And if this is how it’s gonna be I’ma just have to chalk putting out music period," he wrote.
XXL has reached out to Yo Gotti's team at Epic Records for comment.
