  1. Meagan is a college grad with a degree healthcare management and resources which you about claws, rules , laws and among other things t Farris drafted the contract and it's content and her mother and manager at them who passed away and Farris became her manager.

  2. In her interview with Angie M she said “we saw 15k and was like hell yeah we never seen that much” don’t quote me but she pretty much said more or less that she couldn’t resist that 15k cash up front. 15k🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

  3. She was grown and she signed the deal without a lawyer looking over her contract just because she saw dollar signs. She should have learned from the people who came b4 her who signed bad deals so iys no excuse for her to have fucked up

  4. Artist need to read there contract fully before signing. I would say don’t sign any contract that you won’t own you masters. Grind by yourself until you get where you need to be.

  5. They gave her a bad deal and lied about it. I’m glad she is standing up for herself. I worked in claims before and many of us don’t read the fine print but there are always policies and procedures and loopholes to come to the defense of the consumer.

    They should renegotiate or risk losing their most prized artist.

  6. Meg jumped the gun. She did what a lot of uneducated new artist do. Not knowing the business and buying into the concept that labels are shady, she assumed out of paranoia that she was being taken. The percentages are based on the labels recouping cost. That dude put a lot of money into her projects. Its not like hes Warner Bros or some shit.

  7. What is shocking to me is all of the dumb people that say she is ungrateful. Tell TLC, Toni Braxton, etc about that. When the cost of making the album plus promotion comes out of your cut so that you break even or owe money. Then when you tour you pay for the cost of the tour out of your pocket but they walk away with 30K guaranteed. Which means you break even, lose money, or in the best case get 10-20K for each appearance when you charged 100K. I don't blame her hell the girl will be broke and ya'll will be laughing about it 5 years from now. Good job fighting back Megan don't be a fool twice! These are a bunch of nobodies that will never get any kind of deal outside of a job offer from Walmart.

  8. 70k a show does not seem that bad. I know it depends on who must be paid but on the come up you need true riders not extra hands out. Build first don't move too fast or you'll miss something.. like that money. Be grateful. Let him recoup what's owed try and own your Masters stack paper and buyout your contract and keep twerking I mean working
