Rapper SAIGON has left his record label after three years - because bosses spent more money on other artists.
The hip-hop star left Atlantic Records after receiving "no support" from the label.
He says, "They gave me $18,000 (GBP9,000) to shoot the video for Pain In My Life and I'm seeing Plies get $100,000 (GBP50,000) and Lupe (Fiasco) gets $150,000 (GBP75,000).
"What the f**k? Those artists are friends of mine, but now I'm happier than I've been in a minute."
Saigon - real name Brian Daniel Carenard - says he's in talks with several major labels.
He adds, "I'm not that excited about going to a major label. They would have to make it so I'm set for the rest of my life. They want too much for the little that they're giving.
"It's not like I didn't want to put out music. But Atlantic wanted me to do ringtone songs but they didn't sign me as a ringtone artist."
