She also reportedly wants a court to legally end her relationship with Carl Crawford’s label.
On social media, Megan and Crawford often engage in insult-slinging, and after once again complaining about 1501 allegedly attempting to thwart the release of her latest album, Rolling Stone reported that Megan is asking a court for $1 million in damages.

According to the outlet, Megan’s team has asked the court to legally end “her ‘tortured’ relationship with the Houston label.” The rapper has suggested that Traumazine was her final album with 1501 and she wants that and her Something for Thee Hotties project from last October to round out her time with the label. Crawford has reportedly disagreed with this, stating that Megan owes them millions and her 2021 project wasn’t technically a complete album.
“But Pete says Roc Nation helped her understand for the first time that her 1501 contract was not in keeping with industry norms. Instead of the standard 50-50 split of recording profits, Pete’s initial deal gave the label 60 percent of her recording income – with payments to outside parties such as producers coming out of her paycheck. The initial contract also gave the label a 30 percent chunk of her touring and merchandising profits.”
Megan also accuses 1501 of leaking something related to Traumazine earlier this month, adding that the link to the album and artwork was given to her label. The confusion reportedly caused Traumazine‘s release date to be pushed up and now, Megan has hired “forensic investigators to try to determine the source of the leaks.”
