The 7th Annual West Coast Hip Hip Show Awards Show was one of the most unorganized disappointing events my label has ever been a part of! My label paid $1,000.00 performance fee for our Artist to perform in front of Record Label Executives, Hip-Hop and Rap Legends and he did not perform because the host never stuck to the time slots in the order on the slot sheet plus some of the performances were awful and on stage longer than the alloted time! Big names like Snoop Dogg, Coolio, Too Short, etc were advertised to be in the house neither was there. (Too Short’s Mother did show up). My group approached Octavius on two seperate occasions asking when our Artist was performing since it had been over an hour from his time slot and Octavius said in 15 minutes he did this to us twice. As it got closer to the event being over we noticed the remaining awards were being removed from the stage, equipment and microphone gone and police presence asking everyone to leave the theater. We also purchased additional $200.00 VIP Tickets (BBQ, Car & Motorcylce plus show) that were no better than the $92.00 Tickets (show only). We recieved no itinerary as promised for us to follow BBQ was supposed to be at a private beach location and was never told parking cost $15.00. There were no car or motorcycle show the BBQ was not to be found no signage no private beach or indication there was even a West Coast BBQ at the beach. We walked the entire beach twice at 3:30pm and found out later everyone had left by 4:00pm, BBQ was to end at 6pm. Huge long beach with a bunch of groups and if you look at Octavius FaceBook page he claims a beach takeover. Two dozen people is not a beach takeover look at the picture……smh! At the show it was the saddest VIP Access ever, everybody had access to the VIP Room which was a table with soda and chairs sparsley around the room, with a back door leading into a hallway that no one monitored. No crowd control, people walking in and out of two big doors on each side of the stage back and fourth it was so distracting. One act finish performing and then there would be areas of empty seats because groups of people was walking in and out of the theater most of the show. The in and out privilage was a bad idea for this type of show. Octavius Miller is taking no accountability for the 10-12 Artist that never got to perform even though he collected performance fees and not refunding the Artist that never performed. Some Artist traveled from other states paid a performance fee and did not perform per their contracts either. By the time LAPD came to shut down the Convention Center Theater around 10:30pm Octavius Miller left the building and was no where to be found. He left his staff to the wrath of all the angry people that came to see loved ones perform or was to perform on stage. There were even Artist that was to be honored with an award did not recieve one. If you’re depositing money into his or his wife personal bank account that is a red flag. A businessman should have a business account and not commingle with personal funds. We are out of pocket over $3,000.00 and we want all our money back. Octavius Miller lives out of state which makes it hard to file a criminal complaint but, it can and will be done! Breach of contract, Fraud, False Advertising and Misrepensentation This industry is hard enough we do not need this type of Scam or Black Eye reputation tainting it! .
