Salt Spring native Al Rickjames said he reached out to Squash via Instagram in 2019 and asked Squash if him can feature him on a track. He said Squash and his Manager Atto Wallace agreed to a 3k Usd deal.
Al Rickjames said after he sent the money via wire transfer which is on record, Squash blocked him on Instagram and Atto gave him the run around for 2yrs. The Entertainer said that he despises people who scam people especially another artist who is working hard after his prison bid of 10 yrs.
In recent times we also saw Studious Ent running into similar issues with the 6ix leader and several voice notes and conversations were exposed online about that deal.
According to Al Rickjames, “Well this time here dem mess with the wrong one because I hustle hard for my paper and mi nah let no man take nothing from me without consequences”. The Artist went on to say he is dropping a diss track towards Squash because what he did was some coward shit.
The song is titled “Christopher Coke No Scam” and is available on All Streaming Platforms Now!
