Megan Thee Stallion has officially become the first female rapper to land on the Billboard 200 top 10 with projects Fever and Suga, which aren’t albums, according to a tweet via Stallion On Chart. Megan was also the first female rapper to debut on the top 10 with her mixtape Fever.
The Houston rapper recently revealed that her label was refusing to release her new music. In an Instagram Live video, Megan revealed that she is currently signed to two labels - 1501 Record Label and 300 Entertainment - and after signing a management deal with Roc Nation, she was made aware of concerning conditions within her contract with 1501. Megan said she went to the label, which is owned by former MLB player Carl Crawford, to seek a contract renegotiation.
“When I signed, I didn’t really know what was in my contract,” she said at the time. “I was young, I think I was like 20. And, I didn’t know everything that was in that contract. So when I signed with Roc Nation, I got real management, I got real lawyers, and they was like ‘do you know this is in your contract?’ I was like, ‘oh damn, that’s crazy no I didn’t know.’”
Megan continued, “Soon as I said, I wanna renegotiate my contract, everything went left. It just all went bad, it all went left. So now they’re telling a b-tch that she can’t drop no music. It’s really just like, a greedy game.”
Megan received a restraining order against the label, which prohibited them from not allowing her to release music.
Complex reported on Friday (March 13) that a Texas District Court judge extended her restraining order against her label.
Megan released a project, Suga, on Friday, March 6. She announced Suga prior to its’ release, revealing the tracklist as well as the record’s features.
