Turk Speaks On His Cash Money Issues : ‘We’re young when we come in the game…’

Hot Boy member Turk has been going to war with his former label, Cash Money, over monies owed. The Hot Boy member recently sat down with ALLHipHop to detail the situation.

“There are things that we didn’t know coming into the game as youngsters,” Turk says. “When I got with Cash Money it was like ‘97 or ‘98. I believe I was about 15 or 16. I was a teenager fresh out the projects.” 

“At the time, I didn’t know,” he continues. “None of us knew. The only thing we saw was the lifestyle. When you’re young and you see a lifestyle of the rich and famous and have a chance to be in it  – mess with the females, ride in nice cars, and all the stuff that you dream about – especially me coming from the projects, you don’t think about the legality of it. You don’t think about the contracts. You don’t even think about the future. You live for the day. Baby was not young. He had a lot of wisdom. He knows a lot. You can’t take that from him.”

“Don’t be blinded by what you see,” he says. “We’re young when we come in the game, and we’re impressed by the watches, necklaces, earrings, and grills. We’re impressed by that, but you gotta think about if your kids are going to be set for life. Or are you just selfish, and you just want to live for the day?
