Megan Thee Stallion gets”dragged” after disrespecting Nicki Minaj’s contribution to female rap! Megan Thee Stallion named everyone but Nicki Minaj after supporting her before the fame.
The backlash started when the Houston rapper stated Lil’ Kim, Queen Latifah, and Eve paved the way for her generation of female rappers. There are some hip hop fans who believe Megan Thee Stallion was showing false appreciation for Nicki Minaj when she wanted a feature, but has been throwing subliminal disses toward her after “Hot Girl Summer Remix.”

In a new interview with CR Fashion Book, the Houston native commented on whether or not hip-hop is ready to embrace women.
“Women are killing the rap game, so there’s no debate about our staying power,” Meg said. “There’s still work to be done in terms of equality in hip-hop, but it’s come a long way and we have to thank the queens that paved the way for my generation. There is no Megan Thee Stallion without Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Trina, Gangsta Boo, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Eve, and so many others.”
In the CR Fashion Book interview, Megan Thee Stallion spoke on women empowerment, “It’s not just about embracing sex, it’s about embracing the confidence you have in yourself as a woman. Being bold is sexy.” She continued, “Sex is not just one-sided, men should not be the only people who are allowed to speak on sex. Women should be able to control the narrative of how they want to be treated, not only in public but in the bedroom. I’m confident in myself and I try to set an example for all my ladies to embrace their confidence and sexuality.”

Of course, the internet has picked up the omission of Nicki Minaj from her women who paved the way. An old clip was uploaded online where Megan Thee Stallion is fawning over the impact of Nicki Minaj.
Check out the reaction below on social media.
Call me crazy, but this formula seems a bit too familiar- to go from praising 1 specific rapper until you got a feature and afterwards acting like you completely don’t know or wasn’t influenced by that said rapper..

Megan Thee Stallion did the right thing. If a person clearly shows they don’t rock with you like that no more then there’s no need to mention their name. PERIOD. pic.twitter.com/yDjnUrsErj

Read the actual interview text, shes respecting the elders of her GENERATION.
If Kim, Foxy, Eve, Missy never demanded respect from Black male rappers and white led execs, Nicki wouldn’t even have a platform in order to give clout and public recognition to Meg.
