On Tuesday, 1501 Certified Entertainment CEO Carl Crawford filed an emergency motion to dissolve Meg’s temporary restraining order that allowed her to release her debut album, SUGA, against his choice.
Wednesday night, District Court Judge Beau A. Miller denied Crawford’s motion. Miller’s order states that “the album at issue may be dropped for distribution beginning March 6, 2020.”
Miller also mentioned Rap-A-Lot Records head J. Prince, who has publicly been on Crawford’s side and who Meg’s legal team accuses of making threatening social media posts.
“Mr. Prince shall refrain from threatening or posting threatening or retaliatory social media posts or threats against [Megan], her agents, or her representatives.”
The conflict between Meg and the label became public this weekend when Meg took to Instagram live to reveal that 1501 had been holding her back from releasing new music ever since she requested a renegotiation of her contract. She was granted a temporary restraining order after filing a lawsuit against 1501 and Carl. This allowed her to put out new music at her convenience, which she immediately took advantage of by announcing the release of her debut album this Friday, March 6th.
We hope that this whole dispute gets settled so we can get as much Meg music as she wants to release.
