Hip Hop needed another overly sexualized female rapper just like it needs another … well, male rapper in general. Yet, Megan Thee Stallion was able to wedge through the dozens of dolls who permeate the culture with her unabashed, liberating raps and fierce delivery that mirrors the horsepower of her physique. With her buzz at a new career-high, the Houston native has elevated her status with the release of her debut album, Fever, a relentless onslaught of ratchet gold material that culminates into a modern day street classic.
When Megan Thee Stallion's "Big Ole Freak" landed on Billboard's Hot 100 in April, it was a testament to years of viral freestyles and her devoted "hotties," whose faithful support on social media helped the song rise to mainstream recognition. The 24-year-old has been prolific--her evolution is displayed through the invention of various rap personas, such as Tina Snow, Megan Thee Stallion, and Hot Girl Meg, the turn-up queen with serious ambition on her mind. "We have so many legends and so many greats," she recently said of her hometown of Houston, Texas.
