Arguably one of her greatest freestyles to date, she delivers this one effortlessly over the smooth instrumental for Biggie’s Get Money. Back in January this year, she went on Dallas based station, blessing us with this, over another Biggie beat, this time the smooth Big Poppa.
The latest in the Stallion offerings, this summer, Megan shared a (albeit short) few bars with Sway In The Morning. Megan made this year’s prestigious XXL magazine freshman cover alongside the likes of Rico Nasty, Rowdy Rich, Terra Whack and DaBaby.
And Meg even had to laugh at her own situation: “Damn, I must be Olivia Pope / ’Cause you all keep putting’ me in all of these scandals,” she raps. On Instagram, she wrote, “I was supposed to post this last night live from the studio, but I think IMA drop these every Monday ,” adding #meganmondays.
Megan Thee Stallion is bouncing back stronger than ever following the July 12 shooting incident involving Tory Lane. Lane was initially booked and charged for possession of a concealed firearm following his arrest on the night of the incident that left Megan with gunshot wounds to both of her feet.
Nonetheless, Megan is keeping her head held up high, as showcased in a new freestyle she shared over the weekend. The 25-year-old uploaded a video on Instagram where she can be seen sitting before a makeshift studio setup in her home, donning an orange bikini top with a matching baseball cap while playing an instrumental from music producer Little Just Made The Beat.
In the snippet, the “Savage” rapper comes in slinging some fire bars, rapping “Tic TAC toe, I X this b***h/ If a hit dog holler, I address that s**t.” She went on to reference the shooting incident, rapping “Got shot two times and I ate that s**t / Bounced right back with a Revlon deal.” The virtual event was broadcast exclusively on Tidal and during her performance, Megan delivered a powerful statement about police brutality.
Just before she won the MTV Video Music Award win for Best Hip Hop, Meg said she was “going through beats” and “had to do a little quick freestyle over a track produced by LilJuMadeDaBeat. So a few weeks ago, Moneybag Yo's IG story was out there where it made it sound like he and Megan Thee Stallion were dating for publicity.
You remember when Trey tried to shoot his shot months ago? Meanwhile, Megan spit a freestyle that sounds like it may be about Moneybag Yo, where she says she doesn't have a ring, and she is single.
It makes us wonder if Meg and Moneybag really did split, because according to him, he keeps hollering about don't believe what the media says. From viral moments to clothing lines and reigning over the music charts, female rappers like Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, Dora Cat and Nicki Minaj showed their dominance.
Covid-19 restrictions canceled in-person concerts and music festivals, ravaged the touring industry, and changed awards shows as we know them. Without live performances to promote their music, the internet became the only tool for recording artists to connect with their fan bases, and it translated on the charts.
Outside of working with Dora, Final collaborated with a bunch of artists this year including ASAP Berg, Ty Dolley sign, and NBA Young boy. Never one to hold her tongue, Final pointed to alleged favoritism within the voting pool and recounted personally being snubbed for Best New Artist in 2012.
Despite GRAMMY controversy, and hip-hop’s famously bumpy relationship with the Recording Academy, a few female rappers nabbed nominations this year. Besides the GRAMMY nomination, the Industry Games rhymer landed a spot on XXL magazine's Freshman Class cover, and showed her lyrical prowess in the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards cypher.
After a whirlwind year, both personally and professionally, the Houston Hot Girl released her debut studio album, Good News, on Nov. 20. “I feel like we have a lot of growth that happened over the past year,” Megan recently shared with ET of her new album.
The track added a second chart-topper to Megan’s resume, in addition to racking up nearly 1 billion streams and topping the U.S. Spotify Charts (another first for female rappers). Not a bad showing for Card, who has been taking her time with the follow-up to her GRAMMY-winning debut effort, Invasion of Privacy.
Apart from solo success, joining forces with fellow female rappers has become a welcomed trend this year. The lead single “Jobs” and “P**SY Talk” snagged a combined 14.3 million views on YouTube.
Philly’s own Terra Whack was featured in Beyoncé’s epic Black Is King film (she also appears on The Gift album), and Rico Nasty has been gearing up to release her highly anticipated debut, Nightmare Vacation, this Friday. Speaking of the BET Hip-Hop Awards, 20-year-old rapper Flo Mill earned a nod for Best New Artist.
Dora was accused of participating in racist chat rooms (which she denied) and Mulatto has caught backlash more than once this year, mostly over her stage name, which she is thinking about changing. While notoriety has its pros and cons, many female rappers understand their strength as influencers, and use social media as a tool that allows fans to get to know their personalities.
With everything she has in the works for the future, Sweetie understands that looking back on wins and losses is a major part of being a successful artist.
