Megan Thee Stallion has dubbed former MLB All-Star Carl Crawford the “F-King Powder Head” in a record deal dispute.
To recap, the 27-year-old rapper signed to Crawford’s record label 1501 Certified Entertainment in 2018, and the two sides have been locked in litigation since 2020. And on Monday, the label filed a counterclaim, according to TMZ.
Megan Thee Stallion – who oversees the management of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation – took to Twitter after the news broke and appeared to be targeting Crawford’s label.

Later on Monday night, Megan Thee called Stallion Crawford directly and even accused him of using drugs.
“Carl, I don’t want to be signed to your pill butt!” she tweeted. “You talk about me not getting paid for a show and you sound slow. I’m the artist, I’m not paying you directly, maybe fight THE MAN YOU SIGNED WITH AND YOU CAN SEE SOME MONEY, YOU F–KING POWDER HEAD! you hide behind it [Rap-A-Lot records CEO] JPRINZ.”

The latest details of the contract dispute include whether a compilation album released last year called Something for Thee Hottie has become a record fulfillment, according to a petition filed by lawyers for Megan The Stallion in February of their contract with 1501 counts.
The rapper’s attorney, Brad Hancock, released a statement to TMZ in response to Monday’s news of 1501’s countersuit, saying, “This is another absurd attempt by 1501 to disrespect Megan’s album and more money and more squeeze free work out of her for as long as possible. We will ask the court to protect Megan from this type of abuse.”
