American 🇺🇸 rapper Megan Thee Stallion is being countersued by her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment which claims that she owes them more money and more recordings.
The label has made it clear that her 2021 drop ‘Something For Thee Hotties’ does not count as an album and is a mixtape. The two parties had agreed in Meg’s contract she would produce albums that would only feature at least 12 new master recordings of studio performances that are previously unreleased.
The album also needs to be approved by the label but 1501 claims that they did not approve of it. “Something is made up of 21 recordings and includes spoken interlude recordings on which MTS does not appear as well as several previously-released recordings,” said 1501.
Megan who sued the label a month ago, took to her Twitter to reveal that the label approved of it as an album and is in disbelief that they now do not consider it as one.
“Your team signed off on SOMETHING FOR THE HOTTIES to count as an ALBUM now it’s not? Jokes,” read her tweet.
Also, how can I owe you any of MY money out side of music when your team can’t even provide ACTUAL statements of what i owe… you also haven’t PAID ME since 2019. Your team signed off on SOMETHING FOR THE HOTTIES to count as an ALBUM now it’s not? Jokes— TINA SNOW (@theestallion) March 22, 2022
The label claims that Megan has been hiding how much money she makes outside of music which is through endorsements, collaborations and sponsorships adding that they would like a cut from that and that they believe that the numbers should add up to $1 million.
If the judge declares ‘Something’ not an album, Megan will have to stick with 1501 and give them 2 albums before she can walk away which seems to be the one thing she wants the most at the moment.
Things took an even uglier twist after Carl Crawford, the founder of 1501 labeled Megan as a bonified alcoholic who sleeps around in the industry on his Instagram stories and claimed that the truth will be revealed one day.
“This all coming from a Bonifide Alcoholic who f**cked the whole industry including her best friend n**ga,” read the post. @theestallion @1501certifiedentCarl Crawford
