After a brief delay, Megan Thee Stallion has shared a handful of freestyles and songs that her fans have been asking for, on a tape called Something for Thee Hotties.
Freestyles aren’t new to Meg. In August, she dropped two freestyles, one of which featured new bars over a beat she previously rapped on, and the second called “Tuned in Freestyle.” In fact, the “Tuned in Freestyle” is included on Something for Thee Hotties, as will her “Bless the Booth Freestyle,” “Megan Monday Freestyle,” “Southside Forever Freestyle,” and more.
She teased the new drop with artwork that shows her in a devil costume, just in time for Halloween. In fact, the rapper has been going crazy for Hottieween, recently dressing as Pinhead from the 1987 British supernatural horror film Hellraiser.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1’s New Music Daily, Megan said the project “is literally something for the hotties.” Megan also talked about her upcoming album.
“So it’s all the freestyles that are recent over original beats. That the hotties have been asking me to put on streaming platforms. And it’s just a sprinkle of some new things. So I’m working on two albums, right? So I’m just recording a bunch of music. And things that didn’t seem like they started fitting on the project that I know I’m going to release next year, I’m like, okay. It sounds like these songs go more cohesive together. This is one of the projects. So the two albums that I’m working on, Something for Thee Hotties, and y’all know I’m not about to tell y’all the name of the second album, I have been recording songs for a long time.
Megan went on to say, “And I would sit on them and I would be like, okay, I’m not going to use it for this project, I’m going to use it for the next project. But then me and Farris, my manager, my brother, we sitting there listening to the songs and he’s like, “Nah, the hotties got to get this because I know they hungry for something right now.” So let me just put it all on Something For The Hotties. This is my gift to them for Halloween, for Christmas, for Thanksgiving, y’all better be turning up for the rest of the year. I know y’all going to love it.”
Elsewhere during the chat, Megan opened up about college. The rapper is set to graduate in December.
“I haven’t walked across the stage yet,” she said. “I walk December the 11th. But from everybody being able to go on a journey with me from the beginning of my career, seeing me actually on campus in my dorm room rapping, transferring to my next college and me being Megan Thee Stallion at my college and my professors know that I’m rapping and the people in my class know that I’m a rapper. But for now for them to be like, “Oh my gosh, I remember that. Now look at us walking across the stage.” I feel like that is a good thing for my hotties to see too. It’s been a few times where I’ve been not as on time as I should have been to something because I had to either hurry up and finish a presentation on Zoom with my professors, or I had to hurry up and try to turn in my assignment before 11:59. It’s been a whole little chaotic thing, but I really wanted to do it. I really wanted to make my mom proud. Really wanted to make my grandma proud. Wanted to make myself proud.”
The rapper also recently appeared on First We Feast’s Hot Ones, where she broke down how to make the perfect sex song.
