A woman got super pissed when Usher parked his SUV in a handicap parking space in Atlanta.
New York rapper ASAP Rocky was just starting buzz when he signed his deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA earlier this month.
So what made the NYC newcomer sign his name to the dotted line so quickly?
Well, according to the rapper, “About three million dollars.”
“[Other rappers who don't sign] are smart, but I feel like Sony/RCA is a family and the people there actually care about me,” ASAP Rocky said to Pitchfork.
“When I came to meet [Polo Grounds Music founder] Bryan Leach, I got to know him on a personal level– he would set up car service for me to go to other labels.”
“He wanted to see me make it. He’s from Harlem.”
To breakdown Rocky’s deal, $1.7 million goes towards his solo projects, while $1.3 million will fund his A$AP Worldwide imprint.
“I’m going to have creative control; there’s no bullsh*t,” he said.
“The situation is almost unrealistic. I mean, five months ago I had about $3,000 in my bank account. Now I’m worth $3 million.”
“Nobody’s gotten a deal like that since 50 Cent.”

According to the report, the incident stemmed from another maid’s firing a few weeks ago.
Authorities say Minaj fired the maid after she went into her trash to retrieve a picture in hopes that the rapper would sign it.
According to police, the housekeeper returned, to the ire of Ms. Minaj who ordered her to leave.
A source for TMZ says the woman refused saying she would not be “treated like an animal.”
To which Nicki reportedly replied, “I’ll show you how to treat someone like an animal…get the f— out of my house!”
But according to TMZ’s sources, the maid Nicki confronted was not the maid she relieved of her duties weeks prior and she was barking up the wrong tree.
However, Minaj’s boyfriend then reportedly got physical with the maid, prompting the workers boss to file a battery report.
No one was arrested.
