Migos Drop Lawsuit Against Their Former QC Attorney As ‘Culture III’ Push Continues

8343

Migos are in the market for a new legal team. After filing a lawsuit against their longtime attorney Damien Granderson in July 2020, Variety reported on Wednesday (February 3) that the suit was dismissed with prejudice.

Granderson represented Migos for some time but the suit alleged he “abused his position of trust as Migos’ fiduciary from the moment he was retained as Migos’ lawyer.” The Atlanta trio took issue in the conflicts of interest with Granderson also representing Migos’ home label, Quality Control Music.

Granderson negotiated a pricey departure for Migos to leave 300 Entertainment and join the Capitol Records family in 2017. Outside of that one specific instance, the suit just mentions “unjust enrichment” and “professional malpractice” as to the reasons behind the filing.

Quality Control boss Pierre “Pee” Thomas seemingly referenced the lawsuit in an Instagram post shortly following the death of QC rapper Marlo in July.

“It is unfortunate that the same people that we have worked hard, provided opportunities for, and championed for are now alleging that we have participated in any kind of immoral or unfair business practices or took advantage of them and their careers, especially while we are dealing with the death of an artist on our label that was dear to us,” he wrote.

The “MotorSport” rappers were seeking millions of dollars in damages before the lawsuit was thrown out. Outside of the legal troubles, which the group is no stranger to, Migos are readying their comeback with Culture III in 2021.

In a cinematic trailer released in January, Quavo teased C3 and new music from the Migos on the horizon.

“It’s time for us to crack down and bond and know about our business, and just time to get everything squared away,” Huncho stated in the clip. “We’re just young men trying to grow. Right now, we’re at a time in our life we’re allowed to sit down and build and start from scratch.”
