1501 Certified Entertainment CEO Carl Crawford is attempting to take back all the hate he spewed about his biggest earner, Megan Thee Stallion.
Carl Crawford Is Revamping 1501
The former professional athlete is blaming his sportsmanship-like ways as the reason why he went so hard on Meg. He admits he messed up, a lot and really wants to mend the fences now. The first step in the process is hiring someone who actually knows about the music business.
The new president of 1501 certified is Kai “Verse” Tyler, and seeing as Carl hasn’t heard from Meg since 2019, so, the move now, is going forward without her.
“Just call it, I don’t know competitive nature from playing sports and stuff, you’re used to people yelling at you and stuff, you go back and forth. So, I kind of got caught up in that game in the moment.”
Crawford continues on to admit, “I probably shouldn’t have done it,” he admits. “I’m in a different game now.” He is “taking a different approach” and this is where Verse is a key player.
1501’s Reputation Is Horrible
“Our reputation was kind of real, real bad,” admits Crawford. The plan is to “go directly at the situation” and clean it up. Crawford shares that one of the things that tripped him up was that a lot of new things came at him fast.
Coming from the world of baseball, he admits he had no clue how to deal with all this music stuff. “you might make a few mistakes here and there but you have to take ownership for that,” he says.
He shares that he’s never had a problem with Meg and in fact, it’s “this social media stuff” that was a catalyst for the rift. “take the social media part out of it and we don’t have a problem.”
Carl Crawford Won’t Be Talking About Meg Anymore
The music executive is admitting that he is very over the drama. “I’m done with that,” he claims. “you won’t hear me mention Meg Thee Stallion’s name in the media unless it’s for something like this or it’s a big time and I gotta say it but, you won’t see me texting or making a post,r any of that stuff that will cause social media to go crazy.”
Verse chimed in to clarify that it’s not only Meg that the company is vowing to leave alone. “we don’t have disdain for anybody, Meg, Roc Nation, at the end of the day, they are a business conglomerate, they are a business people. We don’t have any in-discrepancies towards any of them.”
He believes it was more so emotions taking over than anything else which makes sense, Meg is passionate about her music and Carl is passionate about the money he invested.
What Happened Between Meg & 1501?
As Crawford describes it, “literally one day we were cool, the next day we weren’t” but in the media there seemed to be a back and forth with Crawford accusing the Houston rapper of leaking her own album, effectively messing with his coin.
He also claimed that she isn’t even from Houston, plus let’s not forget how supportive he was of Tory Lanez during the trial between the Toronto-born rapper and Meg. In return, Meg wasn’t a saint, she allegedly trolled the CEO on Twitter and other social media platforms.
She accused the label of being run by grown men who are “bullying” her. It’s basically tit for tat at this point.
