On the Come Up: Megan Thee Stallion
Some of you have probably been hearing a lot of talk about Megan Thee Stallion, but if you haven’t by now, let us introduce you to the rising star.
Megan has been active as a rapper since 2016 when she began by posting her freestyles on YouTube and Instagram. She caught the public’s eye with her appearance in “The Houston Cypher” in 2016, and later that year she released her first Mixtape, Rich Ratchet. In September 2017 she dropped her first EP, Make it Hot, which featured her successful single, “Last Week in H Tx”. Later on she gained even more traction with her viral “Stalli Freestyle”.
On June 11, 2018 her second EP, Tina Snow, was released. The EP spawned five singles; “Tina Snow”, “Freak Nasty”, “Neva”, “Make a Bag”, and her first ever billboard charting single, “Big Ole Freak”.
Fun fact: “Big Ole Freak” samples 90s group Immature’s “Is it Love This Time” from their 1992 album, On Our Worst Behavior.
Megan has been going viral for her flawless and witty freestyles where she skates over beats such as; Amerika’s Most Wanted, Big Poppa, & Zeze. She has also expressed her interest in Anime and that she watches them frequently. She listed My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, and Hunter x Hunter as a few of her favorites. She’s even incorporated some of these anime into her bars.
Over the past three years Megan has been grinding and working hard to make her own lane in the industry, and she has done just that. She is not a social media celebrity and we don’t only know her from her viral twerk video. We know and love Megan for her raw lyrics and authenticity. Her Mixtape, Fever, dropped and has been getting the traction and attention it deserves. Fever debuted at number ten on the US Billboard 200. She is also getting the recognition she deserve in the critical space, as she was nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards, alongside: Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma, Lizzo, and Kash Doll.
It can only keep going up from here.
