Megan Thee Stallion Goes to Court, Alleges Her Label 1501 is Blocking Release of ‘Butter’ Remix with BTS

UPDATE: According to TMZ, a judge has ruled that Megan Thee Stallion is clear to release the remix of BTS’ “Butter.”  

Megan Thee Stallion is going at it again with her label 1501 Certified Entertainment, and its owner, former MLB star Carl Crawford.

Megan claims that 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford are trying to block her from releasing a new song with the K-Pop group, BTS. According to court documents filed in Harris County, Texas on Tuesday, the Good News rapper is set to appear on the remix of BTS’ hit single, “Butter,” which is scheduled to drop this Friday, Aug. 25. However, TMZ reports that 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford are trying everything to butcher this smooth release.

Megan Thee Stallion believes if released, “Butter” could help her reach and expand to an international fanbase, due to BTS’ massive brand. But, 1501 Certified Entertainment disagrees and has stated that this move wouldn’t be good for her career. The Houston native says that this response is a cover-up and the label reportedly trying to get Megan to pay 6-figures and force her to pay them to sign off on the song’s release.

Last March, Megan Thee Stallion sued 1501 Certified Entertainment and Crawford and won a court order that prohibited the label and Crawford from blocking the release of new music. Today, Megan is saying they have violated that order.

Hit-Boy Back Working with Kanye West

Back in November, HS87 producer Hit-Boy revealed on the Rory & Mal podcast that he and Kanye West had a falling out and West tried to have him blacked balled from the industry.

“I haven’t been a fan of Kanye on a personal/ human level since he told me face to face he stopped picking my beats because I worked with Beyoncé,” Hit-Boy told Rory and Mal. “This is after I produced n*ggas in Paris , clique, and a myriad of other songs / projects for him and his label GOOD Music in the 2 years I was signed with them.”

However, Hit-Boy revealed today that he is officially back to working with Ye, presumably for DONDA 2. The producer was seen in the studio with him and The Game and was given production credit on Ye’s latest release, ‘Eazy.’

Jennifer Hough, the woman who was suing Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty for alleged harassment and intimidation in efforts to get her to recant her account that Petty sexually assaulted her, voluntarily dismissed her case against Minaj on Wednesday, January 12.

According to TMZ, there was no financial settlement that made Hough drop the case, however, Petty still remains a defendant, meaning the case against him is still active.

“The case was voluntarily dismissed as to Nicki in NY,” Hough’s attorney, Tyrone Blackburn said in a statement. “The case against Kenneth is ongoing. This does not mean that Nicki Minaj is in the clear. In fact, she’s probably in a worst position now than prior to when the case started. So, I would say, stay tuned.”

Petty was convicted of assaulting Hough in 1995 and served four years in prison. Hough spoke about the incident publicly on The Real, back in October.

Minaj has not addressed the dismissal, but tweeted a unicorn emoji in response to a tweet that quoted her verse on Tasha Cobb Leonard‘s 2017 release “I’m Getting Ready,” which read, “I don’t gotta talk the lord defends me.”

The Queen rapper’s attorney,  Judd Burstein, responded to the dismissal by e-mailing Hough’s lawyer.

“In my view, your conduct in pursuing this case against Nicki represents the worst of our legal system: bottom-feeding lawyers who pursue frivolous actions against a celebrity assuming that they will be paid off if they throw enough dirt.”

Judd continues, “You forced my client to spend over $300,000 in fees to defend a case which even my labradoodle, Gracie, could see was frivolous on both the facts and the law.”

Petty is to return to court in March for sentencing after accepting a plea deal back in August for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California.
