J. Prince Claims Carl Crawford ‘Discovered, Developed & Fully Financed’ Megan Thee Stallion, Rapper Responds: I’m So Over These Grown A** Men Trying To Take Credit Away From The Work Me & My Mama Put Into The Beginning Of My Career

J. Prince wants the public to know that Carl Crawford developed Megan Thee Stallion’s career. 

On Tuesday (Aug. 23) music executive J. Prince took to Instagram to share his side of the story regarding the record label feud between rapper Megan Thee Stallion and record executive Carl Crawford. J. Prince said:

“For years we have stood by quietly as MTS and her mgmt at Roc Nation has lied about Carl Crawford and his 1501 label. The truth is that Carl discovered, developed and fully financed MTS early in her career which led to a life changing distribution agreement for her with 300 Entertainment.”

He continued:

“From 1501’s earliest agreement with Megan, long before MTS was a household name ; 1501 generously agreed to give Megan 40% of its PROFITS which is substantially more than the customary record royalty that a new artist receives from a record label.”

The 57-year-old explained:

“Any attempt by MTS or RN to portray a contract that provides a new unknown artist with 40% of the label’s PROFITS as unconscionable or unfair is blatantly false and contrary to the customs or norms in the music industry. In fact, we have seen several RN contracts and RN pays its new artists a customary royalty that is significantly less than the 40% of PROFITS that 1501 agreed to pay Megan.”

Prince added:

“Accordingly any statements alleging 1501’s contract with MTS is unconscionable are blatantly false and contrary to the facts or custom in the music industry and are made with the specific intent to mislead and interfere with 1501’s contractual rights In addition MTS has consistently and intentionally breached her 1501 contract with impunity for years in ways that are too numerous to list here – from entering into agreements inconsistent with her contract , falsely claiming publishing shares that belong to 1501 – failing to notify, account or pay ancillary revenue; releasing albums of outtakes and previously released material and falsely claiming that she is out of her contract- and now falsely alleging that 1501 leaked her album when the album was always intended by Megan to be released on 8/19 and where the leak actually hurt 1501 as much , if not more than Megan, rendering her claim to be specious and nonsensical.”

As previously reported, on Monday (Aug. 22), Megan Thee Stallion asked a judge to rule her latestTraumazine album satisfies her deal with 1501 Certified Entertainment. The Houston native’s lawsuit also demanded $1 million in damages from 1501 record label for its alleged attempt to stall her career and take advantage of her.  Last night (Aug. 23) Megan took it to Twitter to address J. Prince. In a series of tweets, The 27-year-old said:

“Im so over these grown a** men trying to take credit away from the work me and my mama put into the beginning of my career…me and my mom “developed” my career I was already known for free styling and I was already working on Tina snow before I got to 1501.”

She explained:

“When my mama died I knew a bunch of hood n*ggas who just started a label for the FIRST time were not gonna be able to manage me PROPERLY so I got with roc…by this time I was a bigger artist and I asked to renegotiate… NOT LEAVE what was wrong with that ? That man is GREEDY”

Megan continued:

“Like for this man to keep getting on the internet with his back up to talk like he made me is ridiculous… was you writing my songs ? Were you with me in my dorm room recording me rapping ? What abt all that rapping out side my mamma car ? Think cyphers?? I ain’t even know YOU.”

Megan exclaimed:

“If you wanna be REALLL I DEVELOPED 1501.”

Megan said:

“I only respond when people say my name so all them weirdo comments abt “I’m looking for sympathy and attention” is DEAD…talk to me & ima talk back when I feel like it. I don’t need validation from the internet but I’m not weak either … beat me in court not the comment section.”

Megan added:

“One more thing bc he still going this 42 year old man said he never heard a story abt me playing as a kid where I’m from … sir I would hope 42 year old men couldn’t tell you where I was playing at as a kid.”

The rapper continued:

“Now I’m just a made up character from Houston? Nobody in Houston knows me ? I just started “claiming Houston” when I got famous.. like it ain’t school pictures and some more sh*t out in the world.”

Megan noted:

 “When the hate don’t work they just start saying anythingggg ? like who is ask anybody? All them 18 year old girls that you hanging with at 42? Cause they d*mn sure ain’t gone know me either.”
