The careers of Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby pull from a common parallel. This year, both southern emcees found themselves thrust into the spotlight as their burgeoning careers transformed into bonafide stardom off the strength of solid fanbases and refreshing new additions to the rap game.
For DaBaby it was his fiery Baby On Baby project that cemented his place in such a narrative while Megan Thee Stallion's "Big Ole Freak" track contributed to her massive success. Now as Megan unleashes her debut Fever project, fans of the two have been greeted with an unexpected intersection as DaBaby lends a brief assist on project select "Cash Shit."
While his cameo lasts no longer than 30 seconds, the juxtaposition of the two is a fitting one that wedges open the door enough to make room for what we hope to be future collaborations between the two.
In placing such equal counterparts against each other--two rappers whose southern roots unapologetically brash lyricism shine through at all times--we're presented with an effort laced in impalpable swagger and confidence.
I be cool on 'em, bitch, ain't no pressure (Uh-uh)
'Til I met this lil' freak, her name Megan (Ooh)
This lil' thing here a stallion, look how she walk
Look how she talk, she sexy (Mwah)
I like when they pretty and ghetto (Uh-huh)
Type of bitch that don't even say hello (Yeah, yeah)
