Today in Hip Hop News, we break to you yet again scandalous record label news involving Megan Thee Stallion and her recent filing lawsuit to sue Label 1501, claiming the label never paid her.
The 27-year-old Houston rapper claimed on Tuesday (Feb. 22) that she was never paid by the company, claiming that her money from tours and shows also went to 1501.
Megan also accused Carl Crawford of leveraging his ties with J. Prince, the founder of Rap-a-Lot Records, to intimidate people in the business by employing "strong-arm methods" in a post that was later deleted.
The explosion is linked to a case she won in 2020 against 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford, in which the company attempted to prevent her from releasing her album, Suga.
Thee Stallion and her legal team, on the other hand, have filed a fresh lawsuit against 1501 Certified Entertainment, this time over the definition of a "Album."
1501 is reportedly refusing to let her fulfill the terms of her contract, claiming that her album “Something For Thee Hotties” does not meet the legal definition of a "Album."
Megan alleges her company notified her two months after the release that it did not match the definition of a "Album" under her 1501 recording agreement, and hence did not satisfy her contract's "Minimum Recording Commitment," according to our sources.
The release "certainly satisfies the definition of "Album,"' according to Thee Stallion's legal team, who also pointed out that the defining factor defining a "Album" under the terms of her contract is its runtime, which must be at least 45 minutes long. It takes 45 minutes and 2 seconds to watch Something for Thee Hotties.
Megan is seeking a non-monetary declaratory judgment that Something For Thee Hotties fulfills the definition of a "Album," therefore satisfying the terms of her contract, as well as reimbursement of her legal expenses.
