Megan Thee Stallion may be one of the hottest rappers in the industry right now, but her raunchy style and overtly sexual raps have earned her some sharp criticism from the Hip-Hop community.
Meg has openly stated that twerking is one of her favorite pastimes, and her catalog has already become a mantra for female sexual empowerment, but even in these modern times, her confidence makes others uncomfortable.
A man can be as mediocre as he wants to be but still be praised,” she said during a new interview with Marie Claire. “A man can talk about how he’s about to do all of these drugs and then come and shoot your house up. But as soon as I say something about my vagina, it’s the end of the world?”
And she’s right. Hip-Hop has never been afraid to tackle sex. However, when female rappers push messages of sexual liberation and empowerment, they are often massively scrutinized — dismissed as a one-trick pony.
But Meg is not allowing the naysayers to hold her back.
“It’s something deeper,” she continues. “Not only am I rapping about sex, I’m rapping about you making me feel good. I’m not rapping about licking on you. No, you’re going to do what I told you to do, and I feel like sometimes that can be a little intimidating….Sometimes it’s overwhelming to some men. They can’t handle it, they get a little shook, they get a little scared. But I’m not going nowhere, so get used to it.”
We’re glad. We don’t want Meg to go anywhere.
