Megan Thee Stallion has reached a settlement with her former record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, putting an end to their three-year legal dispute. The 28-year-old Texas rapper is now a free agent and revealed that she is now funding her own music career.
The Hot Girl Summer rapper reportedly settled her legal dispute with the record company associated with former MLB player Carl Crawford after both parties mutually reached a confidential settlement to resolve their legal differences and amicably part ways.
In a statement, 1501 Certified Entertainment said they were happy with the resolution of the matter and looking forward to the future. Crawford, the former Los Angeles Dodgers player, and his company offered their best wishes to Megan for her life and career, as reported by the Daily Mail. The specific terms of the settlement remain undisclosed, including whether any financial compensation was involved.
Last week, Megan Thee Stallion disclosed during an Instagram Live session that she is currently operating independently without the backing of a record label but did not hold back in her criticism towards 1501 Certified Entertainment.
She said her focus since becoming an independent artist is her optimism about her future in the music industry. The Grammy winner disclosed that she is currently financing her upcoming projects without external assistance. Despite this, she sees working without a record label as a positive step for her career. She recently promoted her work by sharing a nude photo.
She mentioned that her current projects are being funded entirely from her own resources, emphasizing it’s a hot-girl production. The rapper encouraged her fans to join her on this journey as she operates from her own pockets. Megan looks forward to future collaborations with a new label once the time is right.
She said she was comfortable operating as an independent artist at the moment. The rapper clarified that she is not currently seeking to sign with a new label because she wants to handle her music career on her own.
She also addressed her previous disputes with her former label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, accusing them of failing to support the release of her second album.
