The lawsuit states that Dummy Vapes entered into a celebrity collaboration with Tekashi in February 2023, securing his exclusive endorsement for the company's vaping products.

Everything appeared to be running smoothly until June when Dummy Vapes claims it learned that Fume had reached out to Tekashi in an attempt to arrange a meeting with him. They claim Fume was trying to entice Tekashi to work for them with a $1 million offer.

Althoguh Tekashi turned down Fume’s offer, the company then allegedly turned their attention to the rapper’s girlfriend, Yailin la Mas Viral, by offering her a $250,000 contract.

Interestingly, Tekashi later embarked on a merchandise partnership with Fume in July 2023. This venture prominently featured his controversial "Shaka Laka" collaboration with Kodak Black and Yailin. Fume moreover released 14 distinct vape flavors, with some even bearing names like "Dummy Vapes by Fume,” a clear diss to its competitor and Tekashi’s original collaborator.

However, tensions escalated when Dummy Vapes claimed that they had invested $60,000 to secure Tekashi's presence on a private jet, as he was set to promote the brand at an industry event in Las Vegas. However, the company was left in limbo when the rapper withdrew, citing directives from Fume as the reason.
