Offset Sues Quality Control, Migos’ Label, Over Ownership of Solo


Offset has filed a lawsuit against Quality Control—the label home of Migos—over ownership of his solo recordings, Variety reports and documents viewed by Pitchfork confirm. In the complaint, Offset alleges that Quality Control continues to claim ownership over his recent solo works despite the fact that he bought back those rights last year.

The rapper’s lawsuit refers to the label’s alleged hold as “wrongful,” claiming that it “knowingly violates Offset’s rights to his own music.” Offset is seeking a declaratory judgment that Quality Control maintains no rights, title, or interest in his solo career. The suit references a 2021 settlement between the rapper and label, which left Offset as the sole owner of his solo work.

Offset claims that Quality Control violated that settlement when it asserted ownership over his recent, Baby Keem–produced solo cut “5 4 3 2 1,” which was released via Motown Records. The rapper alleges that Quality Control demanded that Motown “publicly (though falsely) list Quality Control as holding an ownership interest in the recording of ‘5 4 3 2 1.’”

After news spread of Offset’s lawsuit, Quality Control shared the following statement: “Not only are the accusations in this lawsuit false, they are totally detached from reality. Offset remains a part of QC. Back to business.”
