Megan Thee Stallion is hitting back at J. Prince after the record executive called her lawsuit against her music label stupid, stating both the rapper and her mother knew exactly what the contract entailed when she signed it all those years ago. As The Blast reported, Megan Thee Stallion got a victory in court on Thursday after a Texas judge shut down her record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, and label head Carl Crawford, denying the emergency motion they filed against the star.
1501 Certified Entertainment tried to stop Megan Thee Stallion from releasing any new music without their permission. The rapper is planning to drop a new song, “Suga,” tomorrow. The record label claims that her contract states she can’t release new tracks without their permission. Days ago, Megan Thee Stallion sued Megan sued 1501 and Carl accusing them of using “bullying and strong-armed tactics.” After the news broke about her victory, J. Prince, who is involved in her deal with the record label, took to Instagram to address the lawsuit. He stated that it’s common for artists to “criticize the deal that raised that artist from the dead” after they become famous and even brought Megan Thee Stallion’s late mother into it.
After stating that “Megan seems to be a perfect candidate for self-destruction,” J. Prince revealed that “Any artist in the music industry will testify that a 40% profit share is a great deal.” As we reported, Megan claims she would only walk away with 40% of her music income which quickly dwindled after paying off employees. That’s when J. Prince dropped the bomb that set Megan Thee Stallion off. “To end this I give credit to where credit is due. Megan along with her mother, who evidently could read (God rest her soul), negotiated a good deal,” he said. The “Hot Girl Summer” rapper’s mom, Holly Thomas, passed away in March 2019 after battling a brain tumor.
Hours after J. Prince’s statement, Megan Thee Stallion hit back stating she was “no one’s property” and warning him to “respect my deceased mother.” Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the “B.I.T.C.H.” rapper wrote, “FACTS ARE FACTS AND THE FACTS ARE PUBLIC!!” Telling fans that “extremely pleased” about today’s court victory, Megan Thee Stallion continued, “I will stand up for myself and won’t allow two men to bully me, I am NO ONES PROPERTY.” She also stated that “This has nothing to do with anyone else including JAY-Z,” warning him to “stop deflecting and trying to make this a publicity stunt.”
Megan Thee Stallion then listed out all of her rights in regard to releasing new music before giving J. Prince a stern message telling him never to talk about her late mother. “1501 tried to fight the decision today, the court denied 1501’s request??♀️. respect my deceased mother, she’s not here, you don’t know her, you weren’t involved,” she stated. As The Blast reported, Megan Thee Stallion’s lawsuit against the record label and Carl Crawford is still ongoing.
