Offset Sues Migos’ Label Quality Control Over Solo Music, Claims He Was “Blackballed” By CEO
Offset has sued his Migos record label, Quality Control, according to TMZ. The rapper alleges that the label claimed ownership of his solo music despite there being a deal in place saying that he could release solo music independently. In a filing, Offset says he “paid handsomely” for said solo rights in January 2021 but that Quality Control still tried to claim his recent solo single “54321.”
In response, Quality Control CEO Pierre “P” Thomas tweeted about a February 2021 dismissed lawsuit where Migos claimed their former lawyer “robbed and cheated [them] out of millions of dollars.” Thomas wrote: “Been to real for all this lame shit. Everyone know the real problem.”
Offset responded to Thomas, tweeting that the CEO “blackballed” him and that the two hadn’t spoken in two years. “N****s act like im the problem I paid millions to get my rights back N**** you black balled me I ain’t said Shìt one time homie I ain’t spoke to you in 2 years now I drop and you want ya name on my credit?”
Offset’s wife Cardi B also chimed in writing a (now-deleted) tweet that her husband “bought himself out of his Gc deal after they didn’t want him to renegotiate his contract.”
Migos have been operating as a duo for a bit now, with Quavo and Takeoff working together under the name Migos and as the duo Unc and Phew. Meanwhile, Offset is currently set to release a new solo single, “Code” (out August 26), with Moneybagg Yo via his solo label Motown Records.
