Review: Megan Thee Stallion's New Album is Not for Kids

Megan Thee Stallion is an American rapper and songwriter popular for her March extended play SUGA, featuring the hits "Savage" and "Crying in the Car". Now, she's back with GOOD NEWS. While critics call it clever, families aren't as impressed.

The album is rather lengthy, each of its seventeen songs being unique but also heavily explicit. It opens up by dissing Tony Lanez, a Canadian record producer accused of shooting her in the feet on July 12th. It's a raw and profane introduction

Frequent profanity ranges from "s--t", to offensive racial slurs like "n---a". Stallion sings in detail about explicit sexual behaviors on "Intercourse", featuring fellow rapper Popcaan. With Big Sean and 2 Chainz on "Go Crazy", she conjures up a dangerous hip-hop not worthy of families' time.

While Stallion has never been afraid to reference the use of drugs, her adult lyrics glorify them on GOOD NEWS. References to dopamine are frequent.
