Since the start of her legal battle with 1501 in 2020, the rapper claims she has been stuck in an “unconscionable” contract – one she believes to finally be fulfilled following the release of her most recent album Traumazine. However, the approach of the American Music Awards brought new evidence to light as Thee Stallion reveals that her label took unlawful steps to block her publishing her own music.

According to Thee Stallion and the lawyers hired by her new management of Jay Z’s Roc Nation, 1501 engaged in “threatening and retaliatory behavior” that could have serious consequences in her music career, reports Billboard. After the series of lawsuits the rapper filed against 1501 for leaking her music and denying her the proper royalties, Thee Stallion was able to file an “ex parte” restraining order, with the help of a Texas Judge, in order to maintain autonomy over her own music leading up to the AMAs.

Having been nominated for “Favorite Female Rap/Hip-Hop Artist”, Megan Thee Stallion wants her fair shot at winning and is determined not to let her own label get in the way.
