Megan Thee Stallion has many dismissive modes, however she is commonly only as an intimidator. The Houston freestyler turned Grammy Award winner has maintained an air of presupposed superiority all through her ascent, and when she makes use of her lashing lyricism to browbeat ill-wishers (each actual and faceless) she reasserts her personal star energy.
On “Scary,” an Avedon-produced standout from her new album Traumazine, she as soon as once more embraces presence as a method of intimidation, reimagining Swishahouse as a haunted home within the course of. Alongside the ever-flippant Rico Nasty, she presses ahead relentlessly like a slasher villain, embodying each connotations of a baddie, as each a heel and a assured, impartial lady, every bar enunciated with chunk. Rico, like Megan, is often the alpha throughout the universe of her songs, however the place her Texan compatriot performs the dominatrix, she is a taunter. “He talkin’ on my title and we gon’ dig a grave with you / Zombie-ass bitch, n**** gave me mind for dinner,” Rico snaps. Enjoying with the horror theme, she zips by references to somewhat terror kingdom of her personal making. Because the track’s spooky music-box chimes and Halloween synths construct out a jam match for slab music, two of rap’s premier smack talkers discover a demented glee in menacing those that may in any other case belittle them.
