It appears that there is trouble in the house of Funk Volume.
After its flagship artist Hopsin called out co-founder Damien Ritter over the weekend and threatened to leave, signee Jarren Benton has also come forward to express his desire to leave as well.
The Atlanta rapper took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal plans to join Master P’s No Limit Forever imprint. “We all heard the news about @hopsinson leaving @funkvolume. I’m also venturing out on my own with Master P to revamp No Limit records,” Benton wrote in the caption, alongside a photo of No Limit’s logo.
Despite Benton’s claims, a rep for Funk Volume tells HHDX that he’s still signed to the label… and is not signing with Master P.
Benton signed with Funk Volume in 2012, and released his debut studio set in 2013, titled My Grandma’s Basement, following by an EP in early 2015 called Slow Motion, Vol. 1.
