Megan Thee Stallion has returned with “Thot Shit,” her first solo single since dropping Good News final October. Of course, that doesn’t imply the Houston MC hasn’t been busy, showing on tracks as a featured artist, performing and profitable large on the Grammys, and taking a well-deserved hiatus…you realize, actual Hot Girl Shit.
And in true actual Hot Girl vogue, “Thot Shit” is a sonic and visible explosion of sexuality, satisfaction, and concepts. In the fashionable and outrageous new music video, Megan tortures a slut-shaming, hypocritical lawmaker with a parade of ass-throwing working class girls. “Look motherfucker, the women that you accidentally tryna step on are everybody that you depend on,” she says to him on the video’s begin, over an nameless telephone line. “Do not fuck with them.”
In the music, Megan unleashes a barrage of sharp zingers like, “I walk around the house butt-naked and I stop at every mirror just to stare at my own posterior,” “Everything I eat go straight to my pockets,” and “I don’t give a fuck ’bout a blog tryna bash me, I’m the shit per the Recording Academy.” This tone and candor isn’t new for Megan, however as a substitute marries the hard-hitting raps that started to captivate the world in 2018 with the robust sense of objective she’s developed as a girl that has been attacked and vilified for her boldness and honesty.
With her return, Megan Thee Stallion introduced that certainly one of her early alter-egos (of which she has a number of), Tina Snow (for whom her 2018 EP is called) can be reemerging. The Tina Snow persona is impressed by certainly one of her rap heroes, UGK’s Pimp C, who created the alter-ego Tony Snow. Whereas Megan’s Hot Girl Meg is a celebration woman, and Suga is extra delicate and weak, Tina Snow channels Pimp C’s confidence and participant finesse. Tina Snow helps Meg reclaim the sexist slur “thot” with a wink, a smile, and a twerk.
