Looks like they're trying to stop Thee stallion dead in her tracks
I'm pretty sure if not all but most of you know who up and coming female rapper Meg Thee Stallion is, she's been killing the game lately but someone is trying to stop her...her record label. She had been teasing fans with her upcoming album 'Suga' which she'd hoped would drop May 2.
A simple request to renegotiate her contract turned into her record label 1501 not allowing her to drop new music. Meg hopped on Instagram live to let her fans know if they don't hear any new music from her, that is why.
"Niggas don't even care about what's right; they care about money in the end, if y'all don't see no music from Megan Thee Stallion, it's because 1501 don't want to drop that music-- and that shit crazy. It's real sad. Meg said in the live
"I was like 20, and I didn't know everything that was in that contract, so when I got with Roc Nation, I got management -- real management -- and real lawyers. They were like, 'Do you know that this is in your contract?' And I was like, 'Oh, damn, that's crazy -- no, I didn't know."
"I'm signed to independent labels. I'm not signed to them big-ass labels these other artists are signed to, and they do all kinds of shit. So anything you see me do is because I woke up and did it that day. I work for everything I do. I really be working. And to try and stop me from working is really crazy! All I want to do is put out music."
"I wasn't upset, I'm thinking in my head, 'everybody cool, we all cool, we family, it's cool, it's nice. Soon as I said, 'I want to renegotiate my contract,' everything went left. It all went bad. It all went left. So now they tellin' a bitch she can't drop no music. It's really just, like, a greedy game."
"I'm not a greedy person, I'm not a person that's a bitch. I work with everybody, and I'm nice, and I'm real family-oriented..
"I see the shit that camp be saying about me, and I be like, Damn -- since you got so much to say, why you just won't tell 'em why you mad? You mad because I don't want to roll over and bow down like a little bitch and you don't want to renegotiate my contract, Niggas be like 'oh they made Megan Thee Stallion before I even got over there. I been rapping, been freestyling, been doing me, been Meg."
"To new artists coming out, I just want to say: Please, it might seem good, it might sound good, but you definitely got to read. And you got to read and read, read, read all that shit. Read that motherfucking paperwork and have somebody that know what they're talking about reading it. Don't sign nothing without no real lawyer and make sure your lawyer is not the lawyers of your label. Get your own lawyer with their own opinion."
"I ain't never wanted to address it, but y'all got me fucked up. It is fucked up, but I know I'ma be OK. Because at the end of the day, when you really give a fuck about music and you know that you really doing right, and you really pray, and you really believe in the Lord, and you know you ain't did nothing wrong, can't nobody touch you."
Fans jumped to Meg's defense and got behind her by getting the #FreeMeg and #FreeTheStallion hashtags trending like crazy.
