Record Label Countersues Megan Thee Stallion

The legal war continues to rage on between Megan Thee Stallion and her record label, 1501 Entertainment, with the latter launching a countersuit against her.

On Monday, 21 March, the label filed a countersuit against the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper – real name Megan Pete – by claiming that her October 2021 project, “Something for Thee Hotties”, is not classified as an actual album.

Per the court documents, the project is “made up of 21 recordings and includes spoken interlude recordings on which MTS does not appear, as well as several previously-released recordings” – in other words, it’s merely a compilation album.

1501 Entertainment’s countersuit comes a month after Thee Stallion filed a lawsuit against them, claiming that the project “clearly meets the definition of ‘Album’ under the recording agreement because it is not less than forty-five (45) minutes in length.”

As such, she argues, she has met the requirements of her contract. However, the label rebutted, saying that of those 45 minutes, only 29 minutes of it comprised new material.

Thee Stallion has since criticised the “joke ass” label on Twitter; should their countersuit be successful, the rapper owes them two more albums.
