During a recent interview with The Fader, Houston-based rapper Megan Thee Stallion has shared her thoughts about double standards in the rap world and how to affect her rap career.
‘Hot Girl Meg’ thinks double standards don’t allow her to rap like Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti. She said:
“Being a girl too—they criticize you harder than they criticize men. If I was out there making little noises like Uzi and Carti be making, they would not rock with that. And not saying that they don’t be going hard, because we definitely finna turn up to both of them, but if it was a chick, like—no.”
Megan Thee Stallion also remembered when she flexed her freestyling for the first time in college. She said:
“When you go to college you can just be whoever you wanna be. So I got there and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ma rapper, one day I was at this party, and these dudes was freestyling and I was like, I could rap, and they was like, ‘No you can’t.'” Megan says she spit a couple of bars in an attempt to prove them wrong. “They was like Oh! So then everybody around school knew me as Thee Stallion. And she could rap.”
