Like many of our favs who are rocketed to stardom, our favorite hottie has found herself embroiled in a heated battle with her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment over her contract.
Megan Thee Stallion expressed her frustrations on Instagram Live, revealing to fans that 1501 is permitting her from releasing any new music after she asked to renegotiate her contract with the label, claiming that the label is money hungry.
“N***as don’t even care about what’s right; they care about money in the end,” she vented before adding, “If y’all don’t see no music from Megan Thee Stallion, it’s because 1501 don’t want to drop that music and that sh*t real crazy. It’s real sad.”
1501 CEO and founder Carl Crawford has not addressed the Megan fallout directly. However, he did post a cryptic message regarding loyalty following Megan’s video.
“At a time when loyalty is at an all time low it’s nice to be link with @jprincerespect who is steady teaching me how to move in this cutthroat industry,” he wrote in an Instagram caption. “And I know that terrifies some especially the ones who double cross me.”
Meg also revealed that she did not read her contract in its entirety at the time of signing to the label until she signed to Roc Nation.
“I was like 20, and I didn’t know everything that was in that contract. So when I got with Roc Nation, I got management — real management — and real lawyers. They were like, ‘Do you know that this is in your contract?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, damn, that’s crazy — no, I didn’t know.'”
The candid IG video spawned the hashtag #FREETHEESTALLION , which soon became Twitter’s top trending topic on Sunday evening, with fans using the hashtag in solidarity with the rapper, pleading with the label to free her of her contract or if nothing, free her the music that they are holding on to.
Yikes, take a look at what Meg had to say below.
