At some point in the interview conducted by Brandon "Jinx" Jenkins, they talked about signing with 300 Entertainment, their fallout and how they broke free from the contract.

"300 was the biggest hurdle. They tried to hold us against our will," Offset says. "It wasn't never no in-house hurdles we ever had, like where it had been a problem. With 300, that was the biggest thing, going through times and situations with them."

Pee echoes Offset, saying, "I'm going to stand behind him on that. Because for 18 months, we couldn't sell no product. Whatever that was already out, that was already on iTunes or whatever, that was cool, but anything that we was putting out, it was like we was shackled down.”

“They created that whole movement,” Pee continues, referencing the fervor “Look At My Dab” sparked. “It was one of the biggest songs of that year. We had the athletes doing it. You had the kids, everybody was doing it. But you ain't see it on iTunes, you see what I'm saying?” We couldn't sell it. We couldn't stream it, because we was in a battle.”

“We got a company saying, "Y'all can't put no music out. We ain't letting y'all sell nothing.”



"We didn't make a dollar. I mean, they were still continuing doing shows, but we couldn't sell the actual product.”

According to Pee, QC had to spend around half a million in legal fees to escape the clutches of 300 Entertainment.

“I remember it like it was yesterday,” Coach K adds, “As soon as we came to an agreement, we leaked ‘Bad & Boujee’ and the rest is history.”
