Offset is suing the Migos’ record label Quality Control after saying that the company is claiming ownership of his solo releases despite buying back the rights to the tracks in a 2021 deal.
According to Variety, Offset alleges that Quality Control’s ownership of his solo records and songwriting efforts is “wrongful and knowingly violates” his “rights to own his music.”
“Offset and Quality Control terminated the Production Agreement with respect to Offset’s solo recording services, and Offset became the sole owner of all rights, title and interest in and to his services as a solo recording artist, entertainer and songwriter,” the January 2021 settlement agreement states.
It’s unclear if the Atlanta group has officially disbanded but other group members Quavo and Takeoff have been performing without Offset and are scheduled to perform together, without the 30-year-old on Saturday (Aug. 27) in Houston, Texas.
Offset is currently seeking a declaratory judgment that the record label has no rights, title or interest in his solo career.
