Megan Thee Stallion crushes misinformation.
The Grammy-winning rapper took to Twitter on Thursday to address a report about her legal battle with 1501 Certified Entertainment, the Houston-based record label that signed her in 2018. Megan sued the company for $1 million earlier this year, her most recent claim. exemptions—Something for you Hotties and August’s Traumatized— honored her contractual obligations and allowed her to cut ties with the imprint.
1501 and its owner, former professional baseball player Carl Crawford, argued that October 2021’s Something for you Hotties did not count towards Megan’s contract quota as it contained only 29 minutes of original material.
On Friday, the hip-hop blog Fck Yaya shared a legal document indicating that a judge ruled in favor of 1501 and Crawford. Something for you Hotties did not meet the definition of a 45-minute album.
“The survey known as Something for you Hotties does not meet plaintiff/counter-defendant Megan Pete’s p/k/a/ Megan Thee Stallion ‘minimum recording commitment’ or ‘product commitment’ for the second option period under the contracts between the parties,” the document states. “Plaintiff/counter-defendant Megan Pete’s p/k/a Megan Thee Stallion has not yet met her ‘minimum recording commitment’ or ‘product commitment’ for the third option period in terms of the contracts between the parties.”
Megan caught the report and immediately pointed out that the court still had to grant summary judgment, and the document was mistakenly released.
“No judge has ruled anything on this 1501 case, this information is not accurate,” she tweeted. “The court date for this is not until DECEMBER 12th… we DID NOT go to court and get a summary judgment. Please stop spreading misinformation, thank you.”
Meg went on to question why everyone seemed to be “so hyped for negative news” and went on to post evidence that the above ruling was overturned.
“Not that the truth ever matters to the people who hate me for engagements online 🤷🏽♀️,” she wrote, “but Notice of NULLITY thanks to the COURT for clarifying an error.”
The notice of void judgment read: “On November 2, 2022, the court entered a judgment/order on a summary judgment motion that was not heard and was not ripe for consideration or decision. On November 3, 2022, after becoming aware of the erroneous judgment/order, the matter was brought before the clerk of the court … the court declared the ‘judgment/order’ null and void.”
Megan also cited a since-deleted post on Thursday believed to refer to 1501, writing that “the men in that camp didn’t clear my music anywhere to sync anywhere (shows, movies, etc.) so I could ALMOST not even doing my Amazon show tonight!”
