Megan Thee Stallion and 1501 Certified Ent.’s legal battle continues as the rapper accuses the label of blocking the release of new music.
While Megan Thee Stallion has been scoring Grammys and plaques, among other accolades, she’s also been in a nasty legal battle with her label 1501 Certified Entertainment. It all began when she attempted to renegotiate the terms of her contract which she signed when she was only 20 years old. Unfortunately, the two parties have yet to come to terms on any agreement which apparently continues to impede Meg’s release schedule.
According to TMZ, Megan Thee Stallion is accusing 1501 Certified Ent., and its founder Carl Crawford, for reportedly attempting to block the release of her upcoming collab with BTS. The rapper said that she’s featured on the remix to “Butter” which was scheduled to drop this Friday. However, she said that 1501 could prevent that from happening if they decide to block the release.
Meg said that this collaboration is a massive look that could help her breakout even further in international markets since the BTS fanbase runs deep. However, she said that 1501 has attempted to talk her out of releasing the single because they don’t think it would be beneficial to her career. Megan claims this is simply an excuse in an attempt to get a six-figure check off of her by paying them off to release the song.
Last year, Megan Thee Stallion managed to get a court orderthat prevented 1501 from blocking the release of new music. She ultimately was able to release her debut album Good News because of that but she said that the label breached the court order.
Megan is requesting a judge intervene in order to release the single on schedule.
