Megan Thee Stallion Demands $1M From Record Label After Releasing 'Traumazine' Album

Attorneys for Megan argue that her last two albums, 'Something for Thee Hotties' and 'Traumazine', have fulfilled the requirements of her 'unconscionable' contract with 1501 Certified Entertainment.

AceShowbiz - Megan Thee Stallion's legal battle against her record label is yet to be over. It was unveiled that the Grammy-winning femcee has filed new court documents in which she's asking $1 million from 1501 Certified Entertainment.

Attorneys for the 27-year-old female rapper argue that her last two albums, "Something for Thee Hotties" and "Traumazine", have fulfilled the requirements of her "unconscionable" contract. Now, she's seeking $1 million in damages.

Over the past two (2) years, Pete and 1501 shared a long and tortured history of disputes with each other concerning Pete's recording agreement, including the unconscionability of the agreement in its original form, as well as disputes concerning the release of Pete's music," so read the complaint.

"The two have been able to resolve some of the disputes through the issuance of multiple temporary restraining orders against Defendants from this Court," it added. "But a new dispute has arisen requiring further assistance from the Court."

According to the filing claims, 1501 Certified Entertainment argued that "Something for Thee Hotties" did not meet the definition of an "album" and "does not satisfy her 'Minimum Recording Commitment.' " The complaint added, "1501's new position, taken months after the album's release, is clearly a ruse in an effort to try to take further advantage of Pete, at great expense and in bad faith."

Responding to the complaint was the attorney for 1501, Steven M. Zager. He told PEOPLE that "Something for Thee Hotties" cannot be classified as an album because it features "archival material and spoken word, as well as being released too soon" since Megan's debut album, "Good News".

"We're evaluating Traumazine," the lawyer further stated. "But there's no way Something for Thee Hotties qualifies as an album as that term is defined under her recording commitment in her various contracts with 1501."

Megan released "Traumazine" on August 12 after she traded shots online with 1501 Certified Entertainment CEO, Carl Crawford. She called out the label and Carl for allegedly leaking her music ahead of its arrival.
