Megan Thee Stallion claims her label is preventing her from dropping music

#FREETHEESTALLION and #FREEMEG are trending in response

Megan Thee Stallion has told her fans that her label, 1501, is preventing her from dropping new music. 

On Sunday (March 1), Megan shared her story in an Instagram Live session after a fan tweeted the rapper asking for more hits. She said that requests to revise the terms of her contract with 1501 have resulted in the label denying her the possibility of releasing songs for the time being.

“I’m signed to independent labels,” Megan said. “I’m not signed to them big-ass labels these other artists are signed to, and they get pushes, and they get placements, and they do all kinds of shit. So anything you see me do is because I woke up and did it that day. I work for everything that I do. I really be working. And to try and stop me from working is really crazy! All I want to do is make music. All I want to do is put out music.”

Megan says she signed with 1501 when she was 20 and was not aware of all the different clauses in her contract. Describing the music industry as a “greedy game”, the rapper advised emerging artists to not be naive and warned them about the consequences of signing a contract without properly reviewing its conditions.

Since her online disclosure, fans have started the hashtags #FREETHEESTALLION and #FREEMEG, while the artist has been retweeting fans and thanking them for their support.
