Migos Reveal Why They Left 300 Entertainment
Migos and Quality Control Music executives revealed the problems they had with their early record label, 300 Entertainment.
300 Entertainment signed Migos in 2014, in the thick of their rise in Hip Hop. The Partnership soon ended as behind-the-scenes issues began to accumulate.
“300 was the biggest hurdle. They tried to hold us against our will,” Offset says. “It wasn’t never no in-house hurdles we ever had, like where it had been a problem. With 300, that was the biggest thing, going through times and situations with them.”
Migos’ manager Pee explains that the souring of the relationship stemmed primarily from financial issues. “For 18 months, we couldn’t sell no product. Whatever that was already out, that was already on iTunes or whatever, that was cool, but anything that we was putting out, it was like we was shackled down.”
Pee says that 300 Entertainment prohibited the Migos’ music from being released on major music platforms such as iTunes and Spotify. It’s stated that Pee and the Migos spent around half of a million dollars to escape their contract with 300 Entertainment.
