Megan Thee Stallion calls out 1501 Certified Entertainment CEO over countersuit

22 March 2022, 10:02 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Megan Thee Stallion has aired her frustrations with 1501 Certified Entertainment CEO Carl Crawford on Twitter after the label filed a countersuit.

Last month Megan Thee Stallion filed a new lawsuit against 1501 Certified Entertainment, alleging that the label is preventing her from meeting the demands of her contract by not acknowledging that her Something For Thee Hotties project is an album.

1501 Certified Entertainment has since filed a countersuit in Harris County District Court, Pitchfork reports, alleging the rapper is in breach of contract, and that Something For Thee Hotties "does not meet the requirements of an "album" under the three contracts that she has signed with 1501." The label wants the court to declare that Megan Thee Stallion's Something For Thee Hotties project is not an album, as well as monetary damages based on the contract breaches and lawyers’ fees and costs.

According to Billboard, the label's lawyer Steven M. Zager wrote, "MTS knows that each ‘album’ must include at least twelve new master recordings of her studio performances of previously-unreleased musical compositions. She also knows that 1501 gets to approve the musical compositions to be included on each album. And MTS knows that none of that happened here."

Megan Thee Stallion's lawyer Brad Hancock told Billboard, "This is yet another absurd attempt by 1501 to disregard Megan’s album and squeeze more money and more free work out of her for as long as possible. We will ask the court to protect Megan from this type of abuse."

The Houston rapper also shared her frustrations with the lawsuits on Twitter, writing, "First the man over my label said I don’t make him any money … now he counter suing trying to keep me on his label because he wants to make more money lol if I ain’t making you no money why not just drop me?"

She also asked 1501 Certified Entertainment to "Let me gooo lol," and added in another tweet, "Greedy ass men."

Megan Thee Stallion also claimed that the label CEO Carl Crawford put "his jewelry and chains" on an expense report, and wrote, "lord free me from this joke ass label."

Later, the rapper added on Twitter, "Also, how can I owe you any of MY money out side of music when your team can’t even provide ACTUAL statements of what i owe… you also haven’t PAID ME since 2019. Your team signed off on SOMETHING FOR THE HOTTIES to count as an ALBUM now it’s not? Jokes."

Earlier this month Megan Thee Stallion collaborated with Dua Lipa on "Sweetest Pie".
