(Note Language) Offset is reportedly suing Migos’ record label for their failure to honor a deal made in 2021.
In court documents obtained by TMZ, the rapper claimed he negotiated a deal with Quality Control Records in which he “paid handsomely” for his artist rights, but in spite of that, the label is claiming credit for his newest single.
“54321,” produced by Baby Keem, was released under Motown Records’ Universal Music Group. According to Offset, QC is claiming ownership of the song. The rapper is calling out the “hostile” act and asking the court to declare that he owns all rights to solo projects recorded from January 15, 2021, onward — including his upcoming single featuring Moneybagg Yo.
Getting wind of the suit, Quality Control CEO Pierre “P” Thomas responded to the allegations, seemingly alluding to Offset as the “problem.” “The last lawsuit was filed publicly and dismissed quietly,” he penned in a tweet. “Let’s see how this one go. Been to real for all this lame s***. Everyone know the real problem.”
Offset then replied, calling P out for attempting to take credit on his track after he bought himself out of his solo deal with the label.
“N**gas act like im the problem I paid millions to get my rights back,” the “Clout” rapper wrote. “N**ga you black balled me I ain’t said S*** one time homie I ain’t spoke to you in 2 years now I drop and you want ya name on my credit?”
Migos’ deal with QC remains in place.
