Megan Thee Stallion Granted Order to Depose Carl Crawford and J. Prince Over 1501 Contract
Earlier this week, the ‘Savage’ hitmaker filed a new lawsuit, in which she’s asking for $1 million from her label 1501 Certified Entertainment over an ‘unconscionable’ contract.
AceShowbiz –Megan Thee Stallion is ready to “grill” Carl Crawford and J. Prince. The “Sweetest Pie” raptress has been granted an order to depose 1501 Certified Entertainment executives over her “unconscionable” contract.
TMZ reported on Wednesday, August 24 that the Houston hip-hop star filed legal documents requesting both Carl and J. Prince to sit for depositions in the lawsuit over her contract. The 27-year-old Grammy winner reportedly submitted the motion on Tuesday.
Both depositions will take place in Houston and will be documented on camera. J. Prince’s sit-down with Megan’s lawyers will take place on October 24, while Carl’s deposition is scheduled for the following day.
Earlier this week, Megan filed a lawsuit against her label, asking a Texas judge to rule she’s satisfied her contract with her latest album, “Traumazine”, which arrived on August 19. She also demanded $1 million in damages.
Megan’s legal move prompted J. Prince to speak out in defense of Carl on Instagram, sparking a social media war. “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 began.
“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,” J. 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 response, Megan slammed the “greedy” men on Twitter. “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 first tweeted.
Megan then blasted Carl and J. Prince, noting that they didn’t even write her songs nor accompany her when she was recording her tracks. The “Savage” spitter later declared, “If you wanna be REALLL I DEVELOPED 1501.”
In a following tweet, Megan blasted Carl after he claimed that she’s not really from Houston. “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,” she fumed. “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 s**t out in the world.”
