All I can "say" without getting petty or inmatture unlike Mr. Pringle here (with his many responses which are untrue for I seen the truth myself) is I have paid this man about $500 for a service involving his television showcase. By contract he has implied that it was on a certain date, red carpeted event, I would appear in XXL magazine, and the event would be aired on VH1.

After recieving 10+ emails on changes from new dates, XXL now became The Source, and programming would no longer air on VH1 but BET, I had spoken with Mr. Pringle on how myself running a music company would expect him to handle not only himself but represent his company as well in a more professional manner.

How can a man who claims he is "involved in the music industry" be so un-organized while I represent an up-coming label with more organizational skills. He promised the event would be "jaw dropping" and if I was not satisfied upon arrival I would be reimbursed a full refund. It's unfortunate a good individual like me actually believed in this man's truth through his words. I must give it to you Mr. Pringle, this was definately a lesson learned.

I was suppose to bring people of support along to the event and after Mr. Pringle made various changes from the date to the venue, almost half could not attend due to scheduling. I advised him people do work and need time to make arrangements especially to show to an out of state performance.

The night before I was to appear in New Jersey Tyshone Pringle had sent me a new email of the new venue once again. By this time I was extremely frustrated. Now I was ready to keep my composure until I seen Mr. Tyshone Pringle face to face.

Upon arrival I met Mr. Pringle in a lounge/bar amongst other artist who agreed to participate in his act. Many of the artist were not satisfied quickly realizing there was no red carpet, no "official camera crew," and nobody from any "real" magazine company attended. The only people I saw seemed to be part of Mr. Pringle's company doing all the work.

I did meet Rah Digga and Jesse Idol but that would not make this man's company legit nor substantuary. I'm sure they have dealt with many companies and could care less who gets "jerked" in the process cause they're getting paid the money from those that have been "jerked." Guess that's just part of the business process. I'm sure they were ultimately there for the payout cause when I addressed my concerns to these judges, I pretty much was brushed off.

I was really the only artist/CEO who addressed Mr. Pringle in front of everyone how his services haven't been met and I was extremely unsattisfied. His response was "There's the door" with no concern how much effort I put into his event. After me losing a little professionalism and informing Mr. Pringle such attention would not be tolerated and I would get my money's worth one way or another he quickly appologized for maybe he realized I was a man about his business and not someone of ignorant intelligence.

Let me make a long story short ladies and gentleman: I bit my tongue, performed the event knowing my money would not be returned, and walked away with Mr. Pringle's promise of a refund.

Not only did I ask for a partial refund but a copy of a dvd that I had paid for. Mr. Pringle eventually stopped answering my phone calls and I never recieved anything in regards to the DVD nor partial refund. I do have the emails and have reported this to the Better Business Bureau who seem to not be able to contact neither him nor his company.

After all was said and done - I told Mr. Pringle he could keep the refund and the DVD for his deceitful ways will eventually catch up to him. Thank you Mr. Pringle for a life lesson learned to "Trust Nobody" and "Do Not Send Any Money To Noone Without Fully Doing Your Research."

Circuit boyz

AUTHOR: Black1 - ()

Tyshone you might remember in 2010 when the circuit boyz met you in underground Atlanta during the summer to personally hand you some more money for the scam you were running on us at the time. My story is exactly like the other stories I have heard. Exactly like them. Except I never showed up because, obviously, lol the whole shit was a scam. I didn't have much money then, I think you got like $500 off of us that we never were able to get back because obviously you refused to give it back. But it's honestly refreshing to see that you are still a piece of shit with a fake company and a fake life with barely a couple hundred dollars in your pocket running around scamming young artists with huge dreams and aspirations. You have to know even God doesn't like ugly man and that shit you are still doing is ugly. It doesn't end well for you either. For instance, for a while now I have considered just looking whatever new bullshit company you have going at the moment and pretending to sign up for one of your bullshit events under a made up artist name and made up back story. And then scheduling a meeting with you to give you the cash and discuss things At which point I kidnap your bitch ass, duct tape you and throw you in the trunk and murder your ass and leave you in the woods. That's one scenario I have considered. I have others, but the punch line in all of them is, you die. And it's not about the money it's about me going to great lengths and risking a lot to meet you on time in Atlanta and have that money for you on time as you suggested that it was very urgent and "slots" were closing. Drove from Chattanooga flying down there to meet you in underground. Three of us. My big 6'8, 265 lb friend would still like to speak with you as well. And im sincerely amazed that this man still defends that he is legit lol amazing. I would say simply call the home office or headquarters of his "company" and see for yourself. It will be his throwaway wal mart cell phone. If you meet him he looks raggedy. He is a con man straight up. But beware that fake artist who wants to meet you in the future Tyshone lol that's no bullshit. You had to know karma will not allow you to do what you have been doing it has to come back. That's the balance of the world. But anyhow, I can vouch for these dudes they are telling truth. Dude is a straight up scam artist it happened to me and my group in summer 2010 in underground Atlanta.

TYSHONE PRINGLE IS A SCAM ARTIST!

AUTHOR: AVA - (United States of America)

Really? Stomp to my level?? You sound so educated just by the way you type. And where in the hell is your show going to air??? On BET? NO! On Vh1. NO!  Why? Because they never heard of a small time crook such as yourself.  You are delusional. You are calling ME a little girl when your comments are so juvenile.  You never addressed my questions because YOU ARE LYING!!! Give me your attorney's   information PLEASE and I will call him during the week when he will be in the office. You have my number and my email address where you can forward his information. Its that simple. Please "stomp" to my level. A high powered executive and CEO such as yourself certainly has plenty of time to fish the internet writing poorly written rebuttals to people who have exposed you and I am the little girl?? Get a grip on reality Tyshone.

HEY EVERYBODY!! YOU CAN TRUST THIS MAN! HE IS A PROFESSIONAL AND A CEO.

I know alot of those artist on your so called tour I showed their managers your emails sent to me and they want answers. Your caught give it up bro

Pringle is a scam artist!!!!

AUTHOR: AVA - (United States of America)

Nice rebuttal, Pringle. I have been asking for your attorney's information since back in July.  Never got it, so stop bluffing. And why do you avoid the questions if you are such a professional? Like why did you claim that the contestants would be on BET and in the magazines when clearly that was a lie? Also, why is that when I called the executive chef to find out what happened, he told me you didnt want to pay the bill for the venue? You said there was a conflict in schedule. AND, when you told me that you took care of Vince, I immediately texted him and he said you didn't. You didnt even pay your own cousin. I keep in touch with everybody.  See how you lie. Please keep lying, you are just giving me more evidence against you. This is great. Why did you take your website down???? BUSTED!!!!

If you are telling the truth, you dont take down your website because YOU GOT CAUGHT!

First thing how you assume that we are scamming you. Because you ready these falsely reports of this so call artists. So of these artist was made up from one person that been a pain to us from my ex wife family. The tour is schedule to take place in October. You don't have any of the venues that we are performing until the end of this month that August 31, 2012 that when we release the venue.

So you writing this on false statement like the other ones. Also have you suppose to call the hotels and we have a contract with the hosting hotel. Hmmmm. Okay what you want to say or want to lie about but these people that read these false report will see a tour and our show on air.

Watch and see and everyone that wrote these so call reports will see that you are liars. So convince that. Have a Good Day

jerzy music group is a scam

AUTHOR: unknown - (United States of America)

I am an artist who has vast resources in the industry. I received several emails from Mr.pringle and had phone conversations with him. He is very convincing and is very good at what he does but unfortunatly I do my research before I involve me and my company in anything. Me and my attorny reached out to several sources that represent B.E.T, Source magazine, XXL magazine,venues and even reps of some of the artist that are supposedly going to be on your imaginary tours with the bus and four star hotels. Im here to state none of this is true none of these people or club owners has never heard of this guy. But they are familiar with his scam and has heard of him in a criminal manner. Im just hear to say this Im an up and coming artist. I know how hard it is and for any artist out there he is a con artist and poor investment.

Tyshone Pringle/ Jerzy Music Group/ Allstar Music Showcase SCAM ALERT!!!!!

AUTHOR: AVA - (United States of America)

Its not slander if its all true. I have only stated FACTS about everything that happened. I have every single text, email, and contractual agreement between us and I have witnesses ,the entire crew whom you did not pay as well. AND when I spoke to you last, you said you would have your attorney contact me and I asked you for his information and you never gave it. What a surprise that you respond to this. If you are honest, Tyshone, you don't go into hiding and change your website. I still have texts and emails where you ACKNOWLEDGED that you would pay the crew. ITS ALL SAVED and ready for a court case if that's what you want. DONT THREATEN ME WITH LEGAL ACTION  because I have XXL magazine and BET on my side who will attest to the fact that you did in fact commit copyright infringement and fraud. You cant just cut and paste a logo on stick it on a website claiming affiliation with them. As a consumer and an employee, I have every right to call them to make sure that your claims are valid, as does anyone else. You lied, got caught, and now the website is down. How suspicious. You lied to my face and when I confronted you, you just disappeared. COWARD and CON ARTISTS way out.

Once Again Tyshone let's be clear!! People read

AUTHOR: Mo - (United States of America)

First off you might wanna spell check and proofread your grammer when you respond to a statement cause half of what you stated doesn't even make sense since your such a "professional.

Second - re-read what I have indicated. I paid you almost $500 for services that involved your showcase. Which was $100 for supposingly A&R's to appear on my behalf to see my performance which you stated they were given the wrong address so they never showed up. Yes $350 for the showcase and $35 for the video. So if you wanna be technical that adds up to $485 which is pretty close to my estimate of $500. Let's be clear. The A&R's never showed therefore that was an error on your part and the $100 should have been refunded. Then the video fee should have been refunded since I never got the video.

I had stated that I did do the showcase so you trying to make me seem like I'm blowing smoke is not happening. I brought family and friends to this event and was not going to give them what they had come all the way from Pennsylvania to tell them to go home even if you were bogus in your business. They all seen your work and will vouch especially since my sister was present at the showcase in which she is a graduated attorney from Penn State University and advised me that this is not a headache I should put too much mind to but a lesson learned which I agreed.

You told me this was suppose to be like "American Idol" and "X Factor" oriented which ended up being in a bar/lounge holding what, 25 people or so. Let me remind everyone that I brought about 13 of them from my end.

Third, if you are so legit and a man of business then why are there more negative factors all over the internet about you and your business. There is a trend going on and all things come to light. Let's not mention how you stopped answering my calls and I never got no kind of refund. Now these are facts and you know this!

Like I said Tyshone, I'm not going to go back and forth because that would make me petty which would put me back on your little level of ignorance. Sooner or later your fraudulent ways will come to an end question is when and how. You got nothing on me but I have plenty on you so it is what it is. Let it go just like I have and understand you will one day be brought forth and a judgement will be made for the wrong doings you have done to innocent people.

For the People - understand these things don't just get made up. Why have so many people taken the time to put the word about this man and his business? It's obvious something is wrong with this picture. For those that still wanna do business with him I say God bless and I will pray you don't get dealt a bad hand like many as well as I.

Tyshone Responding to this Statement

AUTHOR: jerzy - (United States of America)

I will not go back and forth with this statement. Service was provided. Showcase was filmed and have footage to back it up. Because he was satisfied but service was provided and he mention yes he met with our judges and continue performing our showcase. All contestant not that we are not going to release the footage until the fall of 2012. So how service wasn't provide. 

He had done his live interview. He want a red carpet interview. Our red carpet interview was on the venue vip area outside on the deck. He wasn't satisfied. Well Can't satisfied everyone but put a false statement like this we will not tolerate. 


All interview was record for the purpose for the editor when we release for the magazine coverage. No he haven't paid $500 to get on our showcase the cost to participate is $350.

If anybody want to see proof of this gentle man performing on our showcase and claims that it is not legit please email us: jerzymusicgrup@gmail.com
