Texas rap star Megan Thee Stallion has kept her word on putting out new music. The hip-hop heavyweight pulled through this week with her must-hear “Girls in the Hood” single.
Meg x Girls
On Friday, Stallion delivered on her promise of putting out a new record. “Girls in the Hood” takes heavy inspiration and an actual sample from late hip-hop icon Eazy-E‘s “Boys in the Hood” classic.
Leading up to the single’s premiere, Eazy-E’s daughter Henree Wright co-signed “Girls in the Hood” but shared her issues with Meg’s team. Wright took specific aim at Stallion’s team for trying to make bank off the record without looking out for Eazy’s family.
“I’m straight bothered and I don’t really get bothered. But I’m not bothered by these dope a** artists that’s making these dope ass pieces of merch or these dope a** musicians who are making these dope a** songs. As long as y’all are paying homage to my father, I fuck with that. 100 percent, right? What I’m bothered by is the people in the background who pushed the ‘OK’ button and say, ‘Go ahead and drop it, we co-sign it. We write off on it.’ ‘Cause he got kids that y’all won’t write sh*t off for. We’ve been trying forever.” -Henree Wright’s Instagram
Wait, There’s More
Shortly after the social media posts, Eazy’s daughter Ebie Wright spoke out. Despite supporting Meg paying homage to E’s legacy, Ebie couldn’t hold her sister down for trying to speak on her behalf over the situation.

Ebie’s sister didn’t let things stop there. She came forward to issue a direct message to EW.
