1501 Woes With Megan Thee Stallion
The label illegally took action to exploit, license, or publish Megan’s work. She presented proof that the label would be engaging in punitive activities. According to the court order, those activities would irreversibly destroy” her music career.
The document does not detail the actions 1501 or 300 took to obstruct the AMAs broadcast. The court issued an ex parte order. A decision is made for the benefit of one party without first hearing from the other party. According to the court’s order, Megan will sustain irreversible damage. This will happen if her music is not connected with her marketing for the AMAs.
Restraining Order Details
The ruling prohibits “preventing the use and exploitation” of Megan’s music for the AMAs. This ruling prohibits her label and any parties working in collaboration with them. The rapper’s continued restraining order motion will be heard at a hearing on November 22.
Megan and 1501 have been in a protracted court dispute since March 2020. The singer has been open about her attempts to get out of her contract.
Megan sued 1501 in February, seeking at least $1 million in compensation. This amount covers the label’s alleged refusal to pay her portion of the profits from her work. The rapper claimed that Traumazine met the requirements of her record deal with Houston label 1501 Certified Entertainment. She then asked a Texas court to intervene and end her “tortured” partnership with the company.
