Along with Quality Control label heads Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas, they and their leading acts on the imprint speak on a variety of topics such as their respective rises, trials and tribulations (Migos, dealing with Offset’s early-career legal issues; Yachty, not pleased with both the critical and commercial reception of his debut album Teenage Emotions), their plans for “world domination,” and more.
Some choice quotes:
On why Migos left 300 Entertainment
“300 was the biggest hurdle. They tried to hold us against our will,” Offset said. “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.”
Pee adds, “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.”
On how their issues with 300 led to the release of their first chart-topper
After spending roughly a half-million dollars on legal fees, Quality Control were able to break free from 300 Entertainment. “I remember it like it was yesterday,” Coach K reminisces, “As soon as we came to an agreement, we leaked ‘Bad & Boujee’ and the rest is history.”

Yachty also shared the a warm-up offering from Lil Boat 2, “Most Wanted.”
