Megan The Stallion’s label has countersued the rapper over her claims that Something For Thee Hotties is an album.
Last month, the rapper filed a complaint in Harris County District Court. In her case, she is “seeking a declaration that her album, Something for Thee Hotties constituted an ‘Album’ as defined in the parties’ recording agreement”.
In October, the record was released, and two months later, 1501 told Megan that they didn’t classify the project as an album. Instead, they said it was only a compilation because it heavily featured old, previously-released material.
According to court documents, the label says it is “made up of 21 recordings and includes spoken interlude recordings on which MTS does not appear as well as several previously-released recordings.”
Furthermore, they also bemoan how she only features on 29 minutes of the new recordings. According to Megan’s contract, “she must include at least 12 new master recordings of her studio performances of previously unreleased musical compositions” for them to recognise the project as an album.
Megan’s attorney Brad Hancock has told TMZ: “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.”
Additionally, the rapper commented on Twitter: “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 added: “I choose not to say nothing back abt court and address shit online but im getting tired of being painted the BAD GUY 2/47 the last girl on 1501 mad at this man too!”
