Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion wants Black women around the world to put respect on their own names. The hip-hop superstar stepped up at last night’s 2021 BET Awards to accept the massive Video of the Year trophy for “WAP” with collaborator Cardi B.
Meg Thee Stallion Tells Black Women They’re The Culture
Stallion hopped onto the stage in place of Cardi B – who earlier revealed a massive baby bump to viewers – literally just minutes after her own “Thot Sh*t” performance. Meg acknowledged how much of an impact 2020’s “WAP” had on universe and, more specifically, why Black females dictate the game.
“I really want to thank BET. I want to thank the Hotties. I want to thank all the beautiful women that’s right here in these front rows. Black women, we are the culture, we’ve been the culture, and in the future we still going to be the culture. So shout-out to us.”
In less than a year, Cardi and Meg’s “WAP” music video has easily received more than 400,000 million YouTube views.

Cardi Believes Women Go Too Hard On Female Rappers
In March 2021, the “UP” hitmaker went to her reliable Twitter page to let loose. Without singling out anyone specific, B lumped all people together – especially women – on not gracefully embracing female rap artists.
“People be so hard on female rappers .”
She also responded to a fan’s tweet about people hating to see women do what men thought only they could do.
“Naaaaa ……man be hating but it really be women in these comments & on YouTube talkin the most sh*t putting women down but fake preach unity and women progression.”
Putting Respect On Female Rappers
In October 2019, Cardi B stepped up to demand some respect placed on her name. B spoke on helping ignite the explosion of today’s female rappers.
“I didn’t say I pave the way for female rappers but I deff gave the hood and women hope.Nikkas wasn’t collabing with females rappers.Labels where signing female rappers and putting them in a shelf and not focusing on them.Not giving them proper attention . … It seem like it was impossible for it to be more then one female rapper.These male rappers where not even takin Money from female rappers for a feature cause it seem far fetch for another woman to make it.I see so many male artists collabing wit females now even .. …. Some that are not mainstream because I know they don’t want to miss out on the opportunity in case they make it cause trust and believe slot of Nikkas I asked for features from when they see me they tell me “I shoulda believe”Deum I should have did the feature .”
Cardi took things even further by asking people to consider the female rap game presence prior to her blowing up.
“And ya can deny it as much as ya want and say I’m crazy or stfuu but how many female rappers before me where getting chances or getting pushed ? They wasn’t believing and now they are ! … And for the slow ones again NO ain’t made females want to rap cause bitches been rapping bitches been have talent but the music industry wasn’t believing and shitting on female rappers .and that’s Big Bentley. … I’m Lying ?
