General Larry Platt, the American Idol contestant who received national attention for his song “Pants On The Ground”, is now facing backlash for his hit anthem.
General Platt recently recorded an official version of his homegrown theme song with the assistance of “This Is Why I’m Hot” rapper Mims.
According to distribution company American King Music, they funded the studio sessions and General Platt owes them money for “expenses related to producing, writing and recording of Mr. Platt’s official recording of the single.”
Attorney Leron Rogers of Hewitt & Rogers released a statement on behalf of the distribution company saying,
“My client, American King Music, who funded Mr. Platt’s recording session with Mims, would like to compensate Mr. Platt for the sales of the full-length hit song ‘Pants on the Ground’ which we made available on iTunes. However, Mr. Platt and his representatives have failed to take care of Mr. Platt’s obligations.”
As previously reported this is not the first time General Platt has faced controversy over his song.
“The Green Brothers” cried foul over the success of his song because it was too close to their musically inclined tune “Backpockets On The Floor.”
They have yet to take legal action against the General.
