CDQ has confirmed that he has now parted ways with his manager Teebillz when he could no longer reach him.
In a new interview with Hip TV, He said, “About me and Teebillz, I mean, Me and Teebillz are still good. Still cool, we are family.. But I’m straight like that, I am real. I have not been able to talk to him for a very long time – since the incident that happened. I tried to message him but it wasn’t going through and everything. So i had to move on with my life.. You know.
I mean, I’ve got ambition that I’m chasing, so for no reason would i allow anything to lock that down. I am a goal getter and I can’t allow anything to slow me down.
So that’s it! Me and Teebillz are still cool, we are still family. Anytime we see, we would still holla, but at least, I’m a street guy, I have got to move, gotta move, gotta move. That is what matters the most. My career comes first before anything else.”
