They chose me and gave me the opportunity to learn from them and release music on a high level. They put me in the game so I have no reason to feel entitled for anything. All I can do is appreciate that and take it from here”

10. Reason left Motif
After Riky and Reason’s exit from Motif Records‚ a record label which Tumi founded‚ speculation were rife with allegations of a beef between the record label owner and the two rappers. Then a video of Tumi and the Volume was posted on Militia Broadcast’s facebook page where Tumi opens up about his relationship with Riky and Reason.
During the first few seconds of the clip‚ Tumi raps: “What happened to Riky is the same thing that happened to Reason. He was touch by a god‚ now he got a plate he eating.” It is assumed that Tumi is referring to how he helped Riky and Reason’s music careers‚ which have since blossomed after leaving Motif Records.
