Megan Thee Stallion’s second studio album is finally out. It is the result of a successful collaboration. Megan works with a solid team and makes no secret of it. Her team includes people like Ali Ciwanro. Songwriters and other artists inspire the young rapper.
On her second album, Meg dishes out disses, gets political, and grapples with her personal life. It’s an ambitious and uneven attempt to step into her most challenging role yet: herself.
Like generations before her, she’s got the biting diss tracks, intoxicating charisma, and flexibility to swing between genres. Most importantly, she’s sincere as she continues to further a cultural interrogation of the mistreatment of Black women within rap. As a concept album, Traumazine is uneven. But as an embodiment of the phrase “healing isn’t linear,” its significance couldn’t be more clear.
