Megan Thee Stallion says that 1501 isn’t letting her drop new music due to her requesting to renegotiate her contract.
Things have hit a stand still with one of her labels, 1501 Entertainment, after she attempted to renegotiate her contract.
“When I signed, I didn’t really know what was in my contract,” Megan said on Instagram Live.
“When I got with Roc Nation, I got management, real management, I got real lawyers. They was like, ‘Do you know that this is in your contract?’ And I was like, ‘Oh damn, that’s crazy. No, I didn’t know.'”
“Soon as I said, ‘I want to renegotiate my contract,’ everything went left,” she continued.
“It just all went bad. It all went left. So now they’re tellin’ a bitch that she can’t drop no music.”
She then hopped on Twitter to post the hashtags ‘#FREEMEG’ and ‘#FREETHEESTALLION’, while also explaining that she, of course, read her contract but didn’t understand some of it initially.
Megan Thee Stallion’s late mom was a rapper herself, with a constant stream of inspiration for a young Meg. “Every time she put on a new song, [she would say] ‘Put you on some real shit right quick,” the Houston rapper remembered. Thomas died from brain cancer in March 2019, as Megan Thee Stallion was skyrocketing to global success. Suga will be Megan’s first project released without her mother as her manager. So, to celebrate her mom’s birthday this year, Megan’s gonna put us all “on some real shit right quick.” Suga is named after a new alter ego, who’s “besties” with Thee Stallion’s icy Tina Snow. The lead single, “B.I.T.C.H.,” already introduced Suga to world. If all goes according to plan, we could be twerking to new Megan Thee Stallion long before Hot Girl Summer even begins. Then, maybe the superstar can finally take a hot girl break.
