GQ magazine has named Megan Thee Stallion Rapper of the Year. The 26-year-old “Savage” rapper was chosen from a short list of rappers who don’t mumble.
Megan, who is best known for her stripper anthem “WAP” with fellow rapper Cardi B, covers GQ’s 25th annual Men of the Year issue.
She said: “I want [Black women] to be sassier. I want us to demand more, be more outspoken, keep speaking and just keep demanding what you deserve.”
She added: “Don’t change — just get better. Grow from these situations. Don’t be beating yourself up about these situations. I feel we keep this stuff in and there’s some kind of way we flip it on ourselves. We didn’t f— up — we didn’t do something wrong.”
It isn’t clear what criteria GQ used to pick the Rapper of the Year. It must be her in-your-face attitude that scored points with the judges.
She did share her personal take on the Tory Lanez shooting that made her a household name over the summer.
“Like, I never put my hands on nobody,” she told GQ. “I barely even said anything to the man who shot me when I was walking away. We were literally like five minutes away from the house.”
