    Megan Thee Stallion, 2Pac And Empowerment In Casual Relationships

    Both 2Pac and Megan Thee Stallion are that rare type of rapper who can philosophize about the nature of relationships while also getting freaky.

    “I don’t want to be your man/I wanna be your *****!” Megan thee Stallion recently sampled “Ratha Be Ya N****”. on her 2020 song, “B.*.T.C.H.”

    2Pac’s original has a lighthearted bounce to it. “You need a thug in your life!/’Cause busters ain’t lovin’ you right!” On the other hand, 2Pac’s song focuses more on the conquest of physical love. “I see ya blushin’ like ya want somethin’/Come get a taste of Amerikaz Most Wanted”.

    Thee Stallion simply wants to minimize her partner(s)’s potential possessive anger by being his “b*tch” instead of his “wifey” or “partner”. Her deviation from the societal norms of relationships is due more to the potential consequences than enjoyment of the act or pleasure of the pursuit. In an interview with Genius posted to YouTube, thee Stallion explained why she is reluctant to be her man’s woman. “‘Cause as soon as I do something that’s gon’ piss you off, it’s gon’ be because we had this “title”, and you making **** bigger than it had to be. So, let’s just be cool about it.”

    This sounds much less fun than 2Pac’s original reasoning for not wanting “to be your man”, “I’d ratha’ be ya *****/So we can get drunk and smoke **** all day!” Perhaps both terms “n*****” and “b*tch” are gender-neutral. I certainly hope so because it sounds like it is way more fun to be one over the other. It is possible. Method Man refers to his lady as “his n****” in “You’re All I Need” (2003) featuring Mary J. Blige.
