Megan Thee Stallion‘s Girls In The Hood single refranchises women disenfranchised by rap music! Megan Thee Stallion released her new single called girls In The which is a female remake of Eazy-E’s song Boyz-n-the-Hood.
As the Eazy-E song is considered to be a testosterone pumping problematic classist that is misogynistic. Megan Thee Stallion performed her new single at the BET Awards Sunday virtual concert along with her hit song Savage. She also walked away with a BET Award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist.
Megan Thee Stallion is said to be leading a revolt of women being mistreated in rap songs. Girls In The Hood is a song which is said to challenge rap music’s patriarchal elements. Eazy-E in the song Boyz-n-the-Hood song has parts about grabbing women by their “nappy-ass weaves” and slapping them” like a pimp”. The song also speaks badly about mothers and does not say anything good about women.
Megan’s music aims to take power from men. She does this through her lyrics and her altar ego Tina Snow, who is female pimp. In the song Girls In The Hood she celebrates her 30 inch weave and speaks on how she has always been “that b*tch”. She also expresses how she wont “call these n*ggas daddy”.
The beat of Megan’s single is a sampled from Eazy-E’s song and has a feminine swing to it. Her female confidence and boldness is felt throughout the song. We see her female boldness in the song Savage as well. Savage has a remix that features Beyoncé who also advocates for girl power.
