Megan Thee Worries About Label’s Financial State

Megan Thee Stallion has voiced her concerns about the ability of the record label to compensate her if she wins her lawsuit. The rapper has accused the label of running low on funds, despite millions of dollars in deposits. Thee Stallion worries About Label’s Financial State Amidst Ongoing Lawsuit

According to TMZ, Megan believes that 1501 Certified Entertainment’s primary bank account has less than $10,000. Because of this it raises fears that the label’s owner, Carl Crawford, along with J. Prince and Gee Roberson, have been profiting from her music without proper compensation.

Royalties sought after In Motion Filed

Megan Worries Financial State (Megan Thee Stallion Album Cover for Good News )

As a result Thee Stallion filed a lawsuit against 1501 and its CEO, Carl Crawford, in 2020. Seeking royalties and her release from her contract in her latest motion. The rapper expresses concerns that she may not receive the compensation owed if she wins her legal battle against the label.

Megan request to appoint a third party to manage 1501’s finances is an indication of the severity of the situation. Megan is not only seeking compensation but also wants to ensure that she receives the payment she is owed, regardless of the label’s financial state.

Because this ongoing legal battle between Megan and 1501 highlights the importance of artists having proper legal representation and being vigilant about their finances. The rapper’s worries about her label’s ability to compensate her should serve as a cautionary tale for other artists.

A third party to manage 1501’s finances could also be beneficial for other artists on the label. Ensuring that they receive their rightful payments. It remains to be seen how the legal battle between both parties will play out. The rapper’s latest motion highlights the need for transparency and fair compensation in the music industry.

38 SPESH is back in the kitchen.

After serving time in prison he returned in 2012 with Time Served. This began a constant dispersal of studio projects that continued through the end of 2010. Along with numerous solo releases, Spesh showcased artists on his TCF Music Group label with the Trust Tape series.

He has blessed mics with Benny the Butcher (Cocaine Cowboys and Stabbed & Shot), Joe Blow (In the Mob We Trust), and Kool G Rap (the cross-generational Son of G Rap). Spesh closed out his second decade of activity with a handful of solo tapes, highlighted by A Bullet for Every Heathen.

He’s worked closely with fellow Upstate natives such as Benny the Butcher and Che Noir, and has recorded with influences including Kool G RapGhostface Killah, and DJ Premier.

Jhené Aiko Releases “Calm & Patient” Single

Jhené Aiko is ushering in a new era with the lush, powerful new single “Calm & patient.” The track is her first new solo song since 2021’s “Wrap Me Up.”

Over beds of synthesizers and minimal percussion, Aiko waxes poetically on the joys of life. She sings, “I’m satisfied with life/ I do not just get by, I thrive/ What a miracle to be up and alive/ Sending love to those who are stuck in the fight.” Listen to the uplifting new anthem below.

Jhené Aiko trended heavily in 2022, after announcing her second pregnancy. She had this child with Big Sean, as she’s been dating him since 2016. As a result, Aiko and Sean announced that this is a son, and went on to be born in November. They also unveiled that his name is Noah.

Aiko has been quiet, last emerging to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her debut mixtape Sailing Soul(s) by releasing the project on streaming services for the first time ever.

“This mixtape was a pivotal moment for me,” Aiko wrote on Twitter. She explained the story of Sailing Soul(s), saying: “When Was 12 I was signed to a label, singing songs I have no real connection to. Besides that, I had no real stories of my own to tell at 12. Then I took a break to focus on school. In my teens, I was signing demo records and taking meetings.

I met with one record exec who told me I needed to do a better job at ‘selling’ myself when I came into meetings. Dressing like myself, singing like myself, talking like myself… wasn’t enough. I thought, why do I have to sell myself? Why do I have to try to convince you of my worth? Of who I am?”

The cover art for Sailing Soul(s) features Aiko standing in the ocean holding onto chains that are wrapped around her wrists and waist. “I wanted the cover to express me breaking free from that narrative of having to “sell” myself. I wanted the broken chains to symbolize that freedom of feeling unanchored… free to be me, going with the flow… going with the wind like a sail boat… freeing my soul… “sailing” my soul instead of “selling” my soul.”
