Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hiss” Is Our Song of the Week

This week, Megan Thee Stallion has a lot to get off her chest on “Hiss.”

For the past several years, Megan Thee Stallion has been at the center of negative attention after a 2020 incident in which rapper Tory Lanez was found guilty of shooting her in the foot. With her new single, “Hiss,” Megan fires back with venomous lyrics going after the biggest names who called her a liar.

The most scathing lines take a thinly veiled jab at Nicki Minaj, whose 2023 song “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” features the lyric, “That .40 cal a make ’em dance like a go-go,” in a not too subtle reference to the Tory Lanez shooting. On “Hiss,” Megan appears to reference Nicki’s husband, registered sex offender Kenneth Petty, when she raps, “These hoes don’t be mad at Megan, these hoes mad at Megan’s Law.”

Next up on her list is Drake, who alluded to “a stallion” lying about “getting shots” on 2022’s “Circo Loco.” Besides responding to Drake’s double entendre about gunshots and butt injections by alluding to rumors he got an ab sculpting procedure himself (“These n****s hate on BBLs and be walkin’ ’round with the same scars”), Megan comes after “cosplay gangsters” with “fake-ass accents.” Given Drake’s penchant for adapting a new accent every few months and self-proclaimed mob ties, the shoe fits.

The H-Town Hottie also takes a moment to seemingly address her ex, Pardison Fontaine (“He can’t move on, can’t let it go”), but “Hiss” isn’t all disses.

There’s a moment of triumph when Megan calls herself “the Teflon Don in the courtroom.” Much like Mafia boss John Gotti, she’s emerged mostly unscathed from the scrutiny of the Tory Lanez shooting trial and a vicious legal battle with her former label 1501 Certified Entertainment.
