Megan Thee Stallion dropped her much-anticipated album SUGA on Friday. The 28-year-old rapper also released the music video for her single "B.I.T.C.H.", which garnered 577K views on YouTube.
Despite a Texas judge warning him to clam up, Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince spoke out about Megan's contract dispute with her label.
J. Prince took to Instagram to share his thoughts about Megan's lawsuit against her boss Carl Crawford, CEO of 1501 Certified Entertainment.
Problems began when Megan signed a management deal with Jay-Z and Roc Nation. In a tearful video she claimed 1501 wouldn't let her drop new music.
She won a small victory in court when a judge granted a restraining order against Crawford preventing him from blocking her music release.
"We have no problem negotiating with Megan but we do have a problem with dictators," Prince said, referring to Jay-Z and Roc Nation, whom he accused of "poaching" artists from Houston record labels.
The 54-year-old music exec noted that Megan's behavior is reckless and she's heading for self-destruction.
"Megan seems to be a perfect candidate for self destruction," Prince writes. "Any artist in the music industry will testify that a 40% profit share is a great deal especially for an unestablished artist that til this day has never delivered an album."
In a follow-up to his original post, Prince wrote:
"To end this I give credit to where credit is due. Megan along with her mother, who evidently could read (God rest her soul), negotiated a good deal. I extended my hand to meet with Megan, T Farris, and team personally for further negotiations. Unfortunately it never happened even though we’re all in Houston, because she’s being controlled by the very people who started this shit. The homie Carl was an angel in Megan's eyes when he was spending hundreds of thousands investing in her career. Now that he’s helped her become a successful artist she stopped paying him his percentage and views him as the devil. I'm glad money don’t make me. I make money."
Megan responded to Prince's posts, saying, "I am no one's property!"
