Megan Thee Stallion has filed a restraining order against both her record label, 1501 Entertainment, and distributor 300 Entertainment, for attempting to interfere with her American Music Awards nomination.

The 27-year-old rapper (born Megan Jovon Ruth Peete) has filed a restraining order claiming that 1501 actions of “threat and retaliation” prevented her from using her music in connection with the AMA, which will be distributed on Sunday.

She was nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, facing Cardi B, Glorella, Lato and Nicki Minaj.

Megan sued 1501 in February claiming it had fulfilled the contract, though the label countersued, claiming that the compilation album did not qualify as a full album.

The label claims that its contract states that any new album must contain at least 12, “new master recordings for studio performance,” and Something For Thee Hotties does not.

The label also claims that they have full approval on all tracks and approved nothing on Something For Thee Hotties, which debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 albums charts in late October 2021.

Megan will go on to release her second full-length studio album, Traumazine, in August through 1501 Entertainment and 300 Entertainment.

The album debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 albums charts, and her fifth top 10 album after 2019’s Fever, 2020’s Sugar and Good News, and 2021’s Something For Thee Hotties.

She was first signed to 1501 Entertainment in 2018, though she started the hashtag #FreeTheeStallion in March 2020 to make fans aware of her issues with the record company.
