The quicker the end of 2019 approaches, the more apparent it’s become that Megan Thee Stallion enjoyed one of the more monumental calendar years for a rap artist. Bringing in the new year with her breakthrough single “Big Ole Freak,” the Houston rep’s buzz continued to trend upward with the release of Fever. Boasting the fan-favorites “Hot Girl Summer” and “Cash Shit,” the mixtape was hailed as one of the hottest bodies of work of the year and cemented Megan as one to watch.
However, in addition to making waves with radio hits and deep cuts, the 300 Entertainment signee also made it clear that she was not to be trifled with by putting on jaw-dropping displays of her aptitude as a pure emcee with her string of freestyles throughout the year. Whether in the confines of a radio station or a random parking lot, Megan is always prepared to drop a hot sixteen with bars to spare, which has only assisted her in her campaign to be known as one of the illest young spitters today.
As we reminisce on the most memorable moments that occurred over these past twelve months, REVOLT looks back at seven freestyles by Megan Thee Stallion that had social media and the rap world going nuts. Check them out below!
DJ Hollywood Bay Bay Freestyle
Megan Thee Stallion kicked off the year with an explosive freestyle that she dropped during an appearance on DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay radio show on K104 Live. Partaking in the HollyHood Bay Bay Freestyle Challenge, the budding star passes with flying colors, listing his prerequisites for a man over the smooth groove of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa” instrumental.
Power 106’s L.A. Leakers Freestyle
During a visit to Power 106’s L.A. Leakers radio show, the captain of the boat blessed the mic with a quick-strike freestyle over 2Pac’s and Snoop Dogg’s classic “Amerikaz Most Wanted” instrumental. Taking lesser emcees across the board to task, Megan’s aggression is channeled, as she stakes her claim as the hottest new rap artist on the market.
Fire In The Booth Freestyle
A four-alarm blaze occurs when Megan caps off her visit to The Charlie Sloth Rap Show with a free-flowing freestyle that further solidifies her reputation as a rhyme animal. Volleying clever punchlines and metaphors over a pair of frantic soundscapes, the lyrical vixen incites a riot on the part of the host, whose prediction of her becoming a household name has proved to be prophetic.
Parking Lot Freestyle
Megan delivers a slew of couplets over a rollicking backdrop in this display of the Texan’s innate rap skills. Rhyming outside of a car, inside of a parking garage, the MC rips the track to shreds in this spontaneous drop for her Instagram followers.
Bless The Booth Freestyle
The Holy Ghost gets caught as Megan walks on water during this Bless The Booth freestyle, which captures the southern belle appraising her curves and flaunting her sex appeal without care. However, the Fever creator makes it clear that there’s more to marvel at beyond the physical, as she spouts off a fiery stanza that showcases her lyrical guile.
The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize” instrumental gets demolished by the H-Town femme fatale, who continues her trend of premiering live freestyles while outside of a luxury vehicle. Professing her love for Biggie beats in the caption of the Instagram vid, Megan references her alliance with Roc Nation and seven figure paydays from performing, while turning in yet another boisterous rhyme spill.
American Music Awards Freestyle
After shutting down the red carpet at the American Music Awards, Megan did the same to social media by reeling off an impromptu freestyle when the festivities were over. Clad in a shimmering gown, the “Cash Shit” rapper unleashed a barrage of bars live from Los Angeles’s Microsoft Theater’s parking lot, and addresses rumors swirling around her love life, while letting it be known she’s single and ready to mingle.
