YGB to Octopizzo: You are selfish

The four-man group that kicked off their music career with rapper Octopizzo, Young, Gifted and Black, popularly known as YGB, has accused the rapper of being selfish.

The group whose members hail from Kibera said they had an agreement with Octopizzo that they would push him into the limelight and once he made it, he would ensure that they become a bigger music empire, according to YGB’s manager, Kamau.

“We had a good plan. We wanted to copy the G-Unit style, where Young Buck, Yayo and Lloyd Banks pushed 50 Cent into the limelight. After 50 Cent made it, he pulled them into the industry and that made G-Unit, bigger and better,” he said.

YGB said Octopizzo frustrated them after becoming successful.

“He even got shows as YGB and never informed the other members,” he added.

Octopizzo has been at the centre of controversy in the past few months. Rapper Khaligraph Jones also released a song telling him off early last month.

However, Octopizzo maintained that he has no time for beef with anyone.
