The rapper has refused to pay the photographer for his work claiming that it is his image and was not consulted adding that there was no agreement between him and the photographer.
He has now come up with ground rules for any photographer who plans to attend his event in future:
One fan questioned if that also applies to blogs that use his photos and this was his response:
Know media that will be invited to the event is not prohibited at all.
Freelance photographers who most of the time gets in with complimentary tickets has to sign a consent.
It’s a standard even commercial media always signs a consent. https://t.co/8OAFV9RYPG
