Megan Thee Stallion’s Short Film Coming To Apple Music

Published

on

Megan Thee Stallion knows that the path to becoming hip-hop royalty isn’t an easy one — especially for women — but it’s the path she was born to take.

Megan details her rapid rise as a reigning emcee in an exclusive interview with Nadeska Alexis and a soon-to-be-released mini documentary as part of Apple Music’s Up Next series, where Megan is this month’s featured artist.

Girls, we have to go 10 times harder than guys,” Megan says over the documentary’s trailer. “We are still expected to give you the bars, give you the look, give you the routine. This is me — I wanna be a rapper, this is it.

Up Next featuring Megan Thee Stallion

The Houston talent has been a part of the hip-hop conversation since her early freestyles lit up Twitter and YouTube years ago, when she first started college at Texas Southern University. With the May release of her debut EP, Fever, she racked up more than 150 million streams, and peaked at No. 3 on the Apple Music charts the week of its release. The 24-year-old’s seemingly instantaneous success is due in equal parts to her unapologetic confidence and infectious, carefree, hot-girl mantra, which are referenced in her Beats1 interview and upcoming short film.

“The fact that Megan Thee Stallion initially captivated us with her freestyles is a testament to the skill and creativity that’s made her music hit so hard,” Apple Music host Nadeska Alexis says in a statement. “Factor in her slick-talking, rowdy alter-egos with her confident charisma and it’s easy to see that she is a born entertainer.”

The upcoming short (shot entirely on an iPhone XS), set to debut June 25 via Apple Music, centers on Megan’s early touring days, when she threw intimate house parties to build her fan base, and credits her two biggest influences, her late mother and hometown of Houston, as the propelling factors behind her drive.

“My mom was a rapper and she really shaped me as a woman, and the music that she was letting me listen to as a child really pushed me in the direction that I’m going in right now,” Megan says. Her mother passed away from a brain tumor in April. “[And] I’m just happy that I’m getting so much love from my city because we Houston! We hard! We’re tough on people. Just to know that the people in my city are really rocking with me, I just love it.”

When it comes to how Megan wants listeners to approach Fever, however, her answer is simple.

“I just wanted [Fever] to be something that was super turnt up the whole time — every song you should be able to bounce to,” Megan says. “Put the swag on it for the summer.”

Drake Withdraws From The Grammys

Published

Well well, it looks like Drake has chosen to not have his music nominated for Grammys. According to PopCrave, there isn’t any word on why he has made this decision to have his 2 nominations removed.

From my perspective, being that the news broke today, the last day of voting, he may have got the feeling that he wasn’t going to win. Drake dragged this album out over the whole year, only for the album to produce mid level songs. Did it make Billboard history? Sure. But was the quality of music up to par with today’s hottest rap music? Not even close.

Nice beats, and catchy rhymes can only get you so far in the Rap industry. Even the GOATs had to change up their formula after a while, and I think it’s about time for Drake to do the same.
