This one hits close to home for me. During my pledging semester, the fraternity booked Gorilla Zoe to perform at our Islander party. Here I am high-fiving the man himself.
It ain’t tricking if you got it, and Gorilla Zoe got it.
Except he “got it” 3 hours late.
We had paid for Zoe to go onstage around 11 P.M. and finish up around 12:30 A.M. He ended up showing up to the house at 1 A.M. As a pledge on stage duty, I had to calm down the crowd for like 2 hours by telling them every 15 minutes that “Gorilla Zoe is in the building” when in reality he was apparently recording radio spots on the other side of town.
We didn’t take any legal action against Zoe because he still brought down the house with his 45-minute set. All I really remember from the performance is him saying “Jeffrey Dahmer” over and over again (the name of one of G.Z.’s more recent bangers), which, when you’re drunk and in Wisconsin, where Jeffrey Dahmer, AKA “The Milwaukee Monster” raped and murdered a ton of young boys, doesn’t really bring about any refreshing party vibes. It was still a great night all around, though.
Sigma Phi Epsilon at Auburn University had a much worse experience than we did when their performer, Chief Keef, failed to show up for a concert after accepting $12,000 from the fraternity.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
According to a newly filed lawsuit, Chicago rapper Chief Keef — whose real name is Keith Cozart — was scheduled to perform at an Auburn University fraternity house last April.
But the lawsuit accuses Chief Keef of not showing up for the gig — and keeping the $12,000 he was paid in advance to appear.
Chief Keef was slated to perform April 25 at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house in Auburn, Ala., according to the suit was filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court by The Booking Collective, LLC.
The Booking Collective, the group officially suing Chief Keef, is the company Sig Ep used to book Chief Keef for their event.
The suit alleges that after word spread that Chief Keef—who now lives in Los Angeles—didn’t show up to the Sigma Phi Epsilon, The Booking Collective’s reputation suffered.
Chief Keef was to be paid $22,000 for his performance, $12,000 of which he received upfront, the suit stated.
The suffering that The Booking Collective’s reputation underwent is nothing compared to the broken hearts of all the sorority girls at Auburn. I hear they love his songs “I’m Not Fond Of” and “I Love Sosa, I Hope He Proposes Before The Start Of The Spring Semester.”
After Chief Keef didn’t show up, The Booking Collective was sued by Sigma Phi Epsilon for $70,000, the suit stated.
Serves The Booking Collective right. You can’t just go around crushing souls and not get slapped in the jowls with the long dick of the law. This is America.
After getting sued by Sig Ep, The Booking Collective in turn sued Chief Keef.
The two-count suit alleges breach of contract and violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act and seeks more than $175,000 in damages.
Sig Ep doesn’t love Sosa..
