Following a legal battle with her record label, Megan Thee Stallion unveiled her new E.P. Suga as promised on (March 6).
The release comes after the “Hot Girl” rapper was granted a temporary restraining order (TRO) against 1501 Certified Entertainment, claiming her label was instructing her distribution company “not to release or distribute any of her new music.”
When 1501 CEO Carl Crawford asked the court to dismiss the TRO, accusing the singer of a “systematic breach of her contractual obligations,” a Texas judge ruled that they could not prevent the star from releasing the album as planned. Meg shared her reaction on Twitter before dropping Suga right at midnight.
As a sweet treat, the rising hip-hop star also released the raunchy video for “B.I.T.C.H.,” the previously-released lead single from Suga. Directed by Eif Rivera, the NSFW visual features Megan’s alter-ego Tina Snow as she shares some tips on how to be that bitch.
As expected Twitter came unglued. Folks were already in their feelings from Jhene Aiko’s new album and then Meg dropped Suga.

To be clear, Meg said Suga is NOT her debut album. She told Ebro on Hot 97 that she is still in the middle of making her album.
“I’m not even gonna call it an album, because I’m still in the middle of making my album,” she confirmed. “When the situation came up, I’m like, ‘Oh my god I gotta put out this music. I don’t want to just leave my fans with nothing ‘cause I don’t know what’s gonna happen.’ The music that I have made and the songs that I really really like so far, I was like, ‘Let’s just drop this shit on the EP.’”
