MIGOS SUE LONGTIME LAWYER OVER DEAL WITH LABEL AND QUALITY CONTROL

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Migos are suing their longtime lawyer, Damien Granderson, who they claim cheated them out of millions of dollars through excessive fees and bad deals. The group emphasized they were in their teens and early twenties with only a high school diploma and "Skrrrt, Skrrrt" dreams when they were "coaxed into a ONE-SIDED DEAL FOR THE BENEFIT OF A HIGHER-PRIORITY CLIENT, QUALITY CONTROL." Oh shit!




There's more. The Migos are also claiming that Granderson made things worse when he negotiated a 2018 amendment to an exclusive label agreement between Quality Control and Capitol Records. This amendment "TRIGGERED AN EXTENSION OF THE EXCLUSIVE RECORDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN QC AND MIGOS." Which allegedly contains terms that were unconscionable to the Migos.



Per the Hollywood Reporter:


Those terms require the Migos to render services directly to Capitol if the band ended its relationship with QCM, and it was drafted in a way that financially disincentivized it from doing so. Writes Freedman, "Granderson effectively prevented his other client – Migos – from ever being free of paying excessive compensation to QCM, from ever being signed to any other record label, and from ever obtaining negotiating leverage to secure reasonable terms in connection with the distribution of its musical recordings."



 


I don't know about y'all, but all I read was that the Migos want out of their deal with QC. Don't tell me that Lil Baby ran them out of QC. We know that Ole Girl is still fighting her contract with Shaft and possibly renegotiation with Atlantic Records. Will she be jumping the QC ship too??? This is going to get ugly, and secrets are going to start spilling out. Let's all get our buckets ready to catch all of them mofos LOL.


 

I want y'all to remember all the talk about Megan Thee Stallion when it was revealed she was trying to renegotiate her contract with 1501. People acted like she was obligated to just stick it out no matter what. It will be interesting to see the talk, now that it involves men.


What ya'll think?

Chile' I said the same thing in regards to Megan getting out of a f'd up contract. I didnt understand many of the bloggers logic in regards to that. I mean it's common sense. If you're able to get out something and the lawyers have found a loophole. Why would you stay? smh...

This topic was one of the reasons I started side eyeing mobs content. I couldn't believe that people were buying into the bs. I'm like do you not have a brain of your own. How is anything this lady is saying makes sense to you?

If the other artist on QCM were smart, they'd review their contracts...

I hate to be that one but the Migos are expendable at this point in their careers. On the outside looking in, they are done as a collective and dare I say it as individuals. All 3 collectively did poorly as solo artists only with Offset having the upper hand due to the collaboration with ole girl. Their few new singles tested poorly among radio and didn't touch billboard. It's too late for them. QC has Baby the Migos no longer serves a purpose for them so I can see QC either bankrupting them to get out that contract like 300 almost did or them being shelved indefinitely. The City Girls are next. Before their album came out they were…
