This past Sunday, Megan Thee Stallion jumped on her Instagram to put some respect on her name. Thee Stallion announced her “Hot Girl Summer” and “Big Ole Freak” singles are platinum-certified.
“Hot Girl Summer and Big Ole Freak are platinum! Fever is almost gold. Thank you hotties. Keep running it up”
“When I signed, I didn’t really know what was in my contract. I was young, I think I was like 20. And I ain’t know everything that was in that contract. So when I got with Roc Nation, I got management, real management, I got real lawyers and they was like, ‘Do you know that this was in your contract?’ I said, ‘No damn, that’s crazy. I didn’t know.’ So I’m not mad at 1501, I wasn’t upset. I’m thinking in my head, ‘Everybody cool. We all family. It’s cool, it’s nice. Let me just ask them n*ggas to renegotiate my contract.’ Soon as I said I want to renegotiate my contract, everything went left. It just went all went bad, it all went left. So now they’re telling the b*tch you can’t drop music.”
The publicized pal to music stars G-Eazy and Trey Songz didn’t hold back. Instead, she admitted greed ultimately took over her record label’s decision in not wanting to renegotiate her deal.
“It’s really just like a greedy game. It’s just real greedy. Wasn’t trying to leave the label. Wasn’t trying to not give nobody money that they feel they’re ‘entitled’ to. I just want to renegotiate some sh*t. … I work with everybody and I’m nice and real family-oriented. But n*ggas going be n*ggas and they’re gonna be greedy and they’re gonna be shady and I see the sh*t that that camp be saying about me and I be like, ‘D*mn, well since you got so much to say, why won’t you just tell them why you’re mad?’ You’re mad because I don’t want to roll over and bow down like a little b*tch and you don’t want to renegotiate my contract. N*ggas be like, ‘Oh, yeah they made Megan Thee Stallion.’ Megan Thee Stallion was Megan Thee Stallion before I even got over there. I been rapping.”
Former MLB superstar Carl Crawford is reportedly the label’s owner. Meg has reportedly remained with the label for over two years.
Stallion’s label is 1501, which is based in Houston and owned by former MLB player Carl Crawford. She signed with the indie label in early 2018. Neither the label, nor Crawford, has responded to her claims. Stallion is managed by RocNation, but that doesn’t have anything to do with this apparent dispute.
