Megan Thee Stallion dropped new album Suga this Friday, following a heavily publicized back and forth with independent label, 1501 Certified Entertainment.
The nine-track project includes her single “B.I.T.C.H.,” which was recently given the visual treatment, and features collaborations with Kehlani and Gunna.
Meg went toe to toe with 1501 label head Carl Crawford, who, along with Rap-A-Lot boss J. Prince, she says have tried to intimidate her after she requested that her contract be renegotiated.
Crawford denied Meg’s claims that she had only been paid $15,000 since signing with him five years ago, and J. Prince also took to Instagram to accuse the Houston hotting of lying.
But Thee Stallion says she is nobody’s slave.
“I mean my issue is not with money, I just want what’s fair,” she explained during a recent interview with Hot 97. “I want the proper agreement. I don’t want to be treated like an object, I don’t want to be treated like a slave. I want to be treated as a human being and… What’s right is right and what’s fair is fair.”
The rapper is also on the fence about whether Suga is officially an album or not.
“I’m not even gonna call it an album, because I’m still in the middle of making my album,” she said. “When the situation came up, I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I gotta put out this music. I don’t want to just leave my fans with nothing ’cause I don’t know what’s gonna happen.’ The music that I have made and the songs that I really really like so far, I was like, ‘Let’s just drop this shit on the EP.'”
