It truly is a bummer for confident, but if there is a silver lining … it is that Casanova and the other people are likely to get compensated for this despite becoming canned. Rolling Loud co-founder Tariq Cherif explained as considerably on Twitter, but would not elaborate even more.

The big query, of study course … why cave to the NYPD at all? It truly is a difficult question — you will find any selection of reasons to cooperate with cops, legal and in any other case. You could chalk it up to a shrewd small business determination … or politics. Likely a bit of both equally, to be honest.

We have reached out to the NYPD to see if this letter is legit …  so far, no word back. As for Rolling Loud, they have declined to remark over and above what Tariq explained.
