Appearing for the very first time on The Breakfast Club, Megan Thee Stallion addresses her current situation with her label 1501 and her contract.
Already with three platinum singles in her young career, Megan Thee Stallion has been pushing though adversity as of late.
After receiving the green light from a judge, Megan has released a new project on Friday titled “Suga”. Consisting of nine songs with features from Gunna, and Kehlani.
Record label 1501, owned by former MLB player Carl Crawford, had been accused of not allowing Megan to release her album. Allegations also claimed the label owned Megan’s masters, and 30% profits of live performances.
Despite it all Megan Thee Stallion is not looking to opt out of her contract with 1501. “I’m not trying to get released from my contract. I just wanted to renegotiate some things in my contract,” explains Megan Thee Stallion. “A lot of things I can’t say, because it’s legal I gotta handle it in court.”
Carl Crawford’s speaking on Megan, would lead her to finally go public with the situation, “He had already been talking about me online. I never like responded to it. I don’t think people realize I was just at a point where I was already frustrated. And, then when I found out I couldn’t drop any music, I was like I might as well say something now,” explains Mega Thee Stallion.
“What people don’t realize is, I don’t put everything on social media. Like, I don’t put my problems on social media. I’m not the type of person to vent online. I just don’t care about a lot of outside opinions.”
After signing with Roc Nation, and being under what she calls “real” management with “real” lawyers, Megan got a better understanding of her current contract with 1501.
“When I finally got real lawyers, and like people around me that knew what they was talking about, it was like some things in my contract or unconscionable in the state of Texas,” said Megan.
Megan Thee Stallion insist her relationship with Roc Nation did not affect her relationship with Crawford, as the two were already at odds. “I know what’s being said is not true,” said Megan.
