Erica Banks Says There’s No Beef With Megan Thee Stallion

She was also blocked from releasing music which led to a court granting her an injunction barring the label from acting as Megan released several mega-hit songs, including “WAP” with Cardi B as the case went on. It’s quite obvious that if any bad blood was to exist, it would flow from Banks’ connection to Megan’s former label. When asked, she said she would collaborate with Megan Thee Stallion because, in the end, “it’s all about business, it’s nothing personal.”
If there is beef, it could be Banks choosing to side with the Carl Crawford-owned record label 1501 Certified Entertainment. “There is no beef, and me speaking about anything in regards to those questions was ‘No’ to refrain from my words being misconstrued like interviewers do. “I knew this was bait during the interview, hence me saying ‘No’ to both questions,” she said. Megan has not responded to any of the statements made by Banks. Megan is now signed to Roc Nation and has seen her career shoot to the top since leaving 1501 Certified Entertainment. Be blessed y’all.”

They can’t misconstrue a one word response. On an interview on HotNewHipHop‘s “Rise and Grind” show, Banks answered “no” to the questions that she had not reached out to her former label mate to squash thing, and she said “no” when she was asked if she was open to that. The label took an unjustified 60/ 40 % of her income and even went into her future streaming income. The snippet of the interview went viral immediately as Megan Thee Stallion fans dragged the newcomer for being in a one-sided beef while Megan could care less. However, it doesn’t seem like Banks is on Megan’s radar as she is busy with her boyfriend and gearing up for summer.

Marcus Miller – Strange Fruit Lyrics

Southern trees bearin’ strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the roots
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin’ from the Poplar trees
Pastoral scene of the gallant south
Them big bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolia, clean and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burnin’ flesh
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the leaves to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Misterwives – Chasing This Lyrics

I’m sorry that I’m not around
I’ve been chasing my dreams with my head in the clouds
Years pass and my friends are all gone
I guess it seems I got lost in this song
Come home to dust in my bed
To plants that have died from lack of being fed
Missed funerals and birthdays
Never meant to miss life when I was away, away
We’ve been chasing this, all of our years
It goes far beyond all our blood, sweat and tears, oh
We’ve been chasing this, all of our years
Want it so bad, you’re willing to face all your fears
You’ve been told, that you’re never gonna get it
You’ve been told, that you’re never gonna get it
But you know, that what’s burning you’s brighter than gold
And I’ll chase it till the day that I go
Remember the night that we walked, from Bleecker to Ditmars
Oh and we talked of our dreams till the sunrise
Over the Queensborough bridge with our eyes open wide
Still keep that moment with me
When we’re up on this stage screaming victory
Oh I’m terrified of who I would be if I never had a melody
Terrified of who I’d be
We’ve been chasing this, all of our years
It goes far beyond all our blood, sweat and tears, Oh
We’ve been chasing this, all of our years
Want it so bad, you’re willing to face all your fears
You’ve been told, that you’re never gonna get it
You’ve been told, that you’re never gonna get it
But you know, that what’s burning you’s brighter than gold
And I’ll chase it till the day that I go
Oh the doubt paves my insides, body so tense its paralyzed
Fearful of these butterflies
But they’re just your friends dressed in disguise
But they’re just your friends dressed in disguise
And we’ll take their wings to reach great heights
One, two, three, four
We’ve been chasing this, all of our years
It goes far beyond all our blood, sweat and tears, Oh
We’ve been chasing this, all of our years
Want it so bad, you’re willing to face all your fears
You’ve been told, that you’re never gonna get it
You’ve been told, that you’re never gonna get it
But you know, that what’s burning you’s brighter than gold
And I’ll chase it till the day that I go
