On his social media accounts, Juicy J continued to lambaste the label, writing on Twitter, “I gave Columbia Records 20+ years of my life & they treat me like backwash.” Over on Instagram, he had harsh words for Columbia CEO Ron Perry and EVP Imran Majid. “Don’t sign with these people,” he wrote on his Instagram Story. “Fuck em!”

Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Columbia Records for more information.
