Megan Thee Stallion sues label for $1m in damages

Megan Thee Stallion is suing her label for $1 million in damages. The “Savage” hitmaker has amended her lawsuit against 1 501 Certified Entertainment after she released what she believed to be her final album in her contract with the label, Traumazine.
As well as seeking monetary reimbursement for allegedly not being paid royalties, she’s also hired a forensic investigator to establish why the LP was leaked early, according to Rolling Stone.

Carl Crawford, a founder of 1501, has also alleged that the 27-year-old rap megastar has not paid her share of her touring and merchandise profits with the firm. As she released her latest record earlier this month, the singer declared herself “almost out” of her contract with 1501 Certified Entertainment as she claimed it was the final album she will release on the label. She told her fans – nicknamed Hotties – on Twitter before her latest record’s release: “We almost out.

“Y’all know I always have problems with dropping my music under this label. The “WAP” hitmaker – whose real name is Megan Pete – filed a lawsuit against the label in February, “seeking a declaration that her album, “Something for Thee Hotties” constituted an “Album” as defined in the parties’ recording agreement.”

The record in question was released on October 29, 2021. She claimed she was told on January 5, that the record was not classed as an album under her recording contract.

Her lawyers said in the filing: “1501’s new position, taken months after the album’s release, is clearly a ruse in an effort to try to take further advantage of Pete, at great expense and not in good faith.”

However, 1501 disagreed and filed a fresh lawsuit claiming the release was “made up of 21 recordings and includes spoken interlude recordings on which MTS does not appear as well as several previously-released recordings.”

They argued that the “Sweetest Pie” hitmaker was only featured on the whole release for less than 30 minutes and that her contract with them includes a clause which states that for it to constitute an album it “must include at least 12 new master recordings of her studio performances of previously unreleased musical compositions“. However, she insisted she was only told that it would have to be 45-minutes long.
