After Megan Thee Stallion Blass Music Exec J Prince called her

Megan Thee Stallion is standing her ground after blasting music executive Jay Prince for allegedly violating her contract with her first music label.

Megan began her career with the indie label 1501 Certified Entertainment, started by former baseball pro Carl Crawford, though as the public social media argument escalated, Megan said “If you want to be real.[…]I developed 1501.”

On Tuesday night, Jay Prince wrote a lengthy Instagram post, explaining the situation between the label and Megan as he saw it, and accused the rapper of multiple breaches in the contract. This prompted “WAP” singer Megan to speak her mind on Twitter, hurling several accusations of her own at Prince and Crawford.

Megan Thee Stallion originally signed with 1501 Certified Entertainment in early 2018. By 2020 she had announced that she was attempting to renegotiate her contract with 1501 and consequently delayed the release of her debut album.

Speaking out, she used the hashtag “#FreeTheeStallion” to say she didn’t understand some of the “words” in the initial contract when she first signed it. Jay Prince took issue with Meghan’s claims against the deal in a lengthy Instagram post.

“For years we have quietly stood by Megan Thee Stallion (MTS) and her [management] Roc Nation (RN) lied about Carl Crawford and his 1501 label,” Prince wrote.

“From 1501’s initial deal with Megan, long before MTS was a household name; 1501 generously agreed to give Megan 40% of its profits, far above the traditional record royalties a new artist receives from a record label.” Prince continued, “Any attempt by MTS or RN to characterize an agreement awarding 40% of the label’s profits to a new unknown artist as unfair or unfair is patently false and contrary to music industry customs or norms.”

He claimed that any statements by Megan or Rock Nation suggesting the 1501 agreement was “unsupportable” were “patently false”. He said Megan had “repeatedly and willfully violated her 1501 agreement” over the years “too numerous to list here”. He actually listed several ways he believes Megan violated her contract with 1501 and the recent allegations against the label.

Prince said that Megan is now “falsely alleging that 1501 leaked her album when Megan always intended to release it on 8/19 and where the leak actually hurt 1501 as much, if not more than Megan.”

After her second studio album Traumazine Leaked in early August, she once again went on a Twitter tirade, targeting her label and writing “Sing me lol.”

Jay Prince’s Instagram message was accompanied by a photo of him and Crawford. The following picture depicts the words, “Every lie we tell owes a debt to the truth and sooner or later that debt must be paid.”

Shortly after Prince made his statement on Instagram, Meghan responded on Twitter.

“I’m so over these grown-ass men trying to take credit for the work me and my mom put in early in my career,” she wrote in the first of 13 tweets sent Tuesday night. “Me and my mom “developed” my career. I was already known for free styling and I was already working. Tina snow Before I get to 1501.”

Tina snowWhich is now Megan’s Twitter name, is the name of her second EP which was released with 1501 Proof.

She said the founders of 1501 Certified “who had just started the label for the first time were not able to manage me properly so I met with Roc. [Nation].”

“By this time I was a big artist and I asked for a renegotiation… What was wrong with that? Don’t quit? That man is greedy,” Megan continued, explaining the controversy from her perspective to her fans.

“For this man to continue to talk on the internet with his backup like he made me laugh… Did you write my songs? Were you recording my rapping in my dorm room? Is it all rap out? My momma car side? Think ciphers? I don’t even know you.”

He pointed out that the other people who signed with 1501 would have the same story as each other. She pointed out that in her opinion, Crawford is “fake” and “talked too much” about Jay Prince.

The 1501 verified Twitter account also got involved in the controversy, referencing a tweet about Crawford and Prince. “Now she sent tweets trying to drive a wedge between me and Jay,” read the tweet, which Crawford reposted on her Instagram account.

Newsweek Megan Thee Stallion, Roc Nation, J Prince and Carl Crawford have been contacted for further comment.
