Megan Thee Megalodon: How 'HISS' complements her metamorphosis

(02/07/24 8:24pm)

Three-time Grammy award winner Megan Thee Stallion is an artist with an intuitive understanding of what it means to use the darkness of trauma to rebirth oneself in the light. It's something that she is all too familiar with: at the same time that she was experiencing career milestones, she was also going through legal disputes with her label as well as the death of her parents. In 2020, the underwhelming, currently imprisoned rapper Tory Lanez shot Megan Thee Stallion twice in the foot, leading to yet another lengthy legal dispute as she fought for the liberation of her truth. And yet, Megan has persisted in releasing high quality music, partaking in lengthy photoshoots and consistently self-advertising to increase her publicity within the industry. Once Megan Thee Stallion’s lawsuit with her old label settled and she gained artistic independence, she released the entirely self-funded masterpiece “Cobra,” in which she unveiled her birth last November. Furthering the cobra’s symbolism of resurrection and renewal, Thee Stallion released “HISS” on Jan. 26.
