Megan Thee Stallion Now Wants $1 Million In Addition To Being Released From Carl Crawford’s 1501 Certified Entertainment Label
Megan Thee Stallion (real name Megan Pete) just raised her price, literally.
For the first time, the former First Lady of Carl Crawford‘s 1501 Certified Entertainment is reportedly asking for $1 million in damages, in addition to being completely released from the record label. The request comes following the release of her album Tramauzine on Friday, August 12, which reportedly finally fulfills the quota needed to be released.
According to Megan Thee Stallion and her attorneys, Tramauzine and Something for Thee Hotties, released in October 2021, “both constitute an ‘album’ as defined in the parties’ recording agreement,” and as a result, the OG hot girl has satisfied the requirements of her contract signed in 2018.
The rapper reportedly wants a minimum of $1 million in damages because 1501 allegedly has refused to give her share of the royalties from her music.
1501’s attorney Steven Zager has responded, noting that they haven’t decided yet whether it will challenge Traumazine as a full album under her contract. The attorney says,
“We want to really analyze the new album. We don’t want to be unreasonable. I think she did that for the impact. I think at the end of the day, Megan owes 1501 lot more money that she claims 1501 owes her.”
Megan Thee Stallion and 1501 Certified Entertainment have been engaged in a protracted court dispute since March 2020, following the Houston rapper’s public claims that she signed a contract with the label when she was still an up-and-coming artist, without realizing at the time exactly what she was getting herself into.
In a video posted on Twitter in March 2020,
“When I got with Roc Nation, I got management – real management – and real lawyers. They were like, ‘Do you know that this is in your contract?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, damn, that’s crazy. No, I didn’t know.’”

The two have since been involved in several heated exchanges across social media, with Megan once calling Carl Crawford a “pill popper.” In return, Carl Crawford referred to Megan as a liar and “bonifide alcoholic.”
Prior to the release of Tramauzine, Megan appeared to celebrate almost being released from 1501. In a tweet, she said,
“Y’all know I always have problems with dropping my music under this label, all these games and having to go to court just to put out my art has been so stressful.”
“Thank you hotties for rocking with me through the b*llsh*t WE ALMOST OUT. LETS STAY FOCUSED AND RUN THIS LAST ONE UP”
