While Megan Thee Stallion is toasting champagne to celebrate her new deal with Roc Nation, her former label CEO is making it known that he is not okay with Jay Z signing her.
The CEO of 1501 Records, Carl Crawford, took to Instagram to let everyone know that Megan is still his! Under a picture of himself posted with J. Prince, he wrote:
”J. Prince and Rap-A-Lot Records have built one of the most impactful independent music labels in the world and we are thrilled to be working with them to expand the audience for our artists globally. Improving opportunities all around. It’s great to partner with a solid individual known to solve many issues in the rap industry. #1501 #JPrince P.S.. ain’t no body taking sh*t from me 🤘🏾💪🏾‼️‼️.”
J. Prince also had a few words of his own about Megan’s new deal. He wrote:
”The music business is a business filled with sharks and cut throat people. So congratulations to the homie Carl Crawford owner of 1501 Records for breaking your first artist Megan Thee Stallion. Carl is from my hood, better known as 5th Ward and I’m proud to be his new partner moving forward. Surprise to all that had plans on taking something from him, good luck with that. This is just the beginning.”
I’m sure Jay Z and his label have all of their ducks in a row, so this is bound to get messy.
