Offset has filed a lawsuit against his former label Quality Control Music regarding the rights to his solo career.
Per TMZ, OffSet accused QC of not honoring a deal he made in January 2021 regarding his solo music, claiming he paid millions for the rights.
Now that he’s in album mode for his solo career, he said QC isn’t honoring the deal as they’ve attached their label to recent singles like “54321” on streaming services.
The Atlanta native’s deal for his solo ventures is directly tied to Motown Records and has no affiliation with Quality Control for anything outside of the Migos universe.
Once reports of the lawsuit went public on Wednesday (August 23), QC co-founder Pierre “Pee” Thomas and Offset exchanged words on social media.
“The last lawsuit was filed publicly and dismissed quietly,” Pee wrote. “Let’s see how this one go. Been to real for all this lame shit. Everyone know the real problem.”

Offset replied saying he and Pee haven’t spoken in two years and feels as if QC isn’t honoring their deal after he paid them millions of dollars.
“N-ggas act like im the problem I paid millions to get my rights back Nigga you black balled me I ain’t said Shìt one time homie I ain’t spoke to you in 2 years now I drop and you want ya name on my credit,” he responded.
Cardi B entered the chat and defended her boo in an Instagram comment claiming Offset bought himself out of his deal with QC.
“Offset bought himself out his QC deal after they didn’t wanna renegotiate his contract. I’m tired of people trying to make Offset look like the bad guy… ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” she wrote.
Offset has been tight-lipped about the Migos’ future as Quavo and Takeoff have released music together. Set’s solo album looks to be arriving imminently and he’s set to drop another single featuring Moneybagg Yo titled “Code” on Friday (August 26).
