Megan Thee Stallion's assistant slams 1501 and fan over money spent on rapper: 'Megan pays for her own s**t'
Megan Thee Stallion's assistant and friend Kelsey Nicole has come to her defense on March 2 after her label 1501 Records put a post on Instagram which questioned her loyalty and someone gave a strong opinion in the comments.
Stallion shared a live Instagram video on Sunday, March 1, stating that her label wasn't allowing her to renegotiate her contract and the label fired back.
Carl Crawford, the Houston label's owner, in the caption to the Instagram picture with himself and Rap-A-Lot founder, J Prince, wrote, "At a time when loyalty is at an all time low it’s nice to be link with @jprincerespect who is steady teaching me how to move in this cutthroat industry," Crawford wrote. "And I know that terrifies some especially the ones who double cross me. (sic)"
A fan shared a similar sentiment in the comments section. "Both of these guys were multimillionaires probably before she was born. They don’t need her. It’s not even about the money", he says. "Do y’all have any idea how much money this man has invented in her? Y’all saw it on the Gram...All of the travel (flights) with her and her crew. The hotels, restaurants, clothes.. Y’all know she didn’t have no money. Next thing you know this person is attempting to sign with someone else," the fan wrote. "He’s supposed to be all right with someone else reaping the benefits of all the time and energy he put into her career... Disloyalty is only an offense to the loyal. (sic)"
According to Complex, in response to his comment, Nicole defended her friend, explaining that Stallion's relationship with 1501 was a two-way-street and that Crawford is playing the victim on social media. "Sir, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Carl hasn’t spent any money on Megan since 2017. Megan pays for all her own s**t".
She goes on to set the record straight, "Speak facts if you’re going to speak. Megan ain’t never been greedy in her life, and whatever he invested he made back plus more. She didn’t attempt to sign with anyone else, she never not once tried to leave 1501 she simply enhanced her career by accepting a MANAGEMENT deal which she needed at the scale she was/is on. He still benefiting from her so what are you talking about? And it’s not that she didn’t literally read her contract, she didn’t understand the verbiage at that time and now that she does she simply requested for it to be fixed. As a businessman/CEO he should’ve sat down at the table with her to come up with a solution, but instead he wanted to play victim on social media and then attack his only successful talent. Yes she is a college student, she’s not studying to be a entertainment lawyer so what is your point there? (sic)"
She adds, "You must want her to remain local? News flash no one in Houston can even manage properly or present her or any artist there with opportunities that increase ones invisibility. SN: her late mother was managing her at the time of her career growing rapidly and Farris took on all roles in her wishes. He could’ve turned his back on her, but he remained. Last but not least, when Megan got with 1501 they didn’t have to do any artist development. Truth be told, she developed 1501. It was a hand in hand situation, which the hand your supporting unfortunately lacked on supporting there own entirely (sic)".
