Megan Thee Stallion filed a temporary restraining order against 1501 Certified Entertainment earlier this week after taking to social media last weekend to say how they won’t let her release any new music. She signed to them when she was 20 as the label is owned by former MLB All-Star, Carl Crawford. She explained that she didn’t understand some of the terminology in the contract. Megan has since received that restraining order and is releasing her new ‘SUGA‘ project tomorrow. It will feature Kehlani and Gunna as well.
According to TMZ, Crawford tried to file a motion to stop the album’s release but a judge has since rejected it. The hearing took place in Harris County, Texas. In Crawford’s lawsuit, he said Megan’s contract issues must be handled in arbitration. He added that Megan made business decisions without his approval. This applies for the album release as well. He has since claimed that Megan changed on him after signing the management deal with Roc Nation last year and doesn’t want to pay him anymore after her social media followers went up along with her concert prices.
Crawford’s lawsuit also pitched his case that “he’s exercising his contractual right to control distribution of her music.” He also doesn’t care that Megan’s fans being disappointed is a reason for the album’s release. In the end, Megan won big and is able to give the people what they want tonight at midnight with SUGA’s release.
