Young Jeezy Claims He Doesn’t Owe Partner 5 Million Dollars

Alleged business partner says he was down with Jeezy before he got his record deal

Rapper Young Jeezy has filed legal papers denying that he owes a former friend and business associate $5 million, Hip Hop Wired reports.

The statement is a response to a lawsuit filed last year by Ellerbee Demetrius against Jeezy, claiming that he is owed profits  from at least four of Jeezy’s albums.

Demetrius (who goes by “Kinky B”) says that he’s been friends with Jeezy since 1995, and that they started two record companies together, released mixtapes, and worked on building Jeezy’s career, but Jeezy denies the claims.
