Megan Thee Stallion is undoubtedly the next female rapper to blow, and in a recent interview with Essence, she opened up about her rise to fame and female competition in the rap game.
“I feel like since, like, forever, it has only been, like, one female rapper at a time. And naturally, women are competitive. So I feel like, without beef, hip-hop probably wouldn’t even be what it is, so it’s good to have, like, a little friendly competition here and there,” Megan said.
“I feel like eventually, we’ll all realize that we’re not trying to cross into each other’s lane. Just because we might be rapping about some of the same things, we’re not doing it in the same way. There’s enough room for all of us to eat. So as soon as we can get that together, then we’ll be all right.”
People were surprised to see Nicki Minaj tweeted lyrics to Megan's lyrics, seemingly in praise of a recent freestyle but then Nicki quickly deleted the compliment.
While some saw the tweet and delete as harmless, many assumed that Nicki Minaj was throwing shade at another up and coming female rap star.
Is Megan right? Is there room enough for everybody to eat or will Nicki be coming for her head?
