Megan Thee Stallion Sues Label to Get Out of Her Contract
The Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion has claims that her recording label 1501 Certified Entertainment is blocking the release of her putting out new music.
Megan made the claims in an Instagram Live, stating that the terms of her contract were not clear to her upon signing with 1501, and that when she asked to renegotiate the contract, she was barred from releasing new work.

The rapper has now filed a lawsuit against the label seeking the termination of her contract, and a temporary restraining order has been granted to allow the new music’s release.
Crawford issued a blanket denial of the allegations made in the lawsuit.
It has been reported that the lawsuit was filed on (March 2) against CEO Carl Crawford of 1501 Certified Entertainment. Megan is said to be suing her label for at least $1 million in damages and is asking for her contract to be declared null or terminated.
The lawsuit claims that the contract dictates that 1501 Entertainment is entitled to 60% of her recording income. The 40% remaining is reportedly allocated to Megan, however the suit claims that she must use that portion of revenue to pay featured artists, mixers, remixers, and engineers.
