"Captain Hook" appears on Stallion's debut album, "Suga," which she released earlier this March against her label 1501 Certified Entertainment's wishes.
The Houston rapper is now promoting her much-talked-about opus with the self-directed visual for "Captain Hook."
The video seems to allude to Stallion's ongoing contractual dispute with 1501 Certified Entertainment, as the 25-year-old vocalist is seen taking matters into her own hands in the recording studio.
In the clip, the MC makes deals at her desk chair, hopping on the recording booth and throwing an impromptu twerking session with her friends.
"Ayy, b***h, I'm a problem nobody solvin'/ You can keep hating, I'm poppin' regardless/ He want a b***h look like Megan Thee Stallion," she raps in the opening verse of "Captain Hook."
"Captain Hook" is the second cut from "Suga" to receive an accompanying music video, following the previously-issued "B.I.T.C.H."
Stallion's debut album arrived a few days after the rapper was granted a temporary restraining order against 1501 Certified Entertainment, with Billboard reporting that the label first instructed her distribution company "not to release or distribute any of her new music."
Earlier this March, the Texas-born vocalist opened up to her fans on an Instagram Live session about the complications that arose after she asked to revise her contract with 1501 Certified Entertainment.

Stallion notably explained that her new management deal with Roc Nation brought certain details to her attention about her contract with Carl Crawford's label.
"When I signed, I didn't really know what was in my contract. When I got with Roc Nation, I got management, real management, I got real lawyers. They was like, 'Do you know that this is in your contract?' And I was like, 'Oh damn, that's crazy. No, I didn't know,'" she explained in the video, also warning emerging artists about the dangers of signing contracts without reviewing them thoroughly.
Following her Instagram Live session, Stallion also launched the Twitter hashtags #FREEMEG and #FREETHESTALLION to raise awareness about her contractual issues.
While her legal battle with 1501 Certified Entertainment is still raging, Stallion is set to perform at several festivals in the coming months, including Rolling Loud Festival, Buku Music + Art Project, Bonnaroo and the now-postponed Coachella.
