Lil Nas X Teams Up With Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion On "Scoop" and "Dolla Sign Slime"


Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat on Lil Nas X's Montero album

 

After a two-week pregnancy rollout, "Industry Baby" Lil Nas X finally gave birth to this debut album, "Montero," last Friday. Despite not being a fan of his antics, I can admit he makes catchy "gay agenda" music. However, I did not sit up waiting for Montero to drop just to listen to him imitate Post Malone, Travis Scott, and Young Thug. So, no, I have not heard the entire album yet; hence this will not be an album review.


Instead, I came for the girls; Yes! Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion. Arguably the two hottest and hardest working women in the game. When it comes to Doja and Megan, you don't have to ask, "Where's the music!"


So, with that said, let's talk music...

 


 


SCOOP

Track: 6


"Scoop," featuring Doja Cat, was the song that piqued my interest the most after seeing the Montero tracklist. I mean, it did not go over my head that you have Lil Nas X and Doja Cat, who not only represent the children birth from the Nicki Pop era, but both have been rejected by her, LOL!


So, I was excited to hear what the rejected children of Nicki Minaj were going to give on "Scoop" and if they were going to show mama why they are leaders of this Pop-Rap revival. But, unfortunately, I was left underwhelmed and felt they both played it safe.

The word that best describes this track is "uneventful." I really had no reason to replay the song, except for this write-up. "Scoop" sounded like all the songs made by the singy-song autotune male rappers that I don't listen to. While Doja Cat gave the song a slight boost, she did not make me want to replay the song just to listen to her verse:


Tomorrow is my day off (Okay)

All them rehearsals got mе tight, look at the payoff (Okay)

And now my body look like something you'd еat cake off

I just got my veneers out, now bitches wanna rip they face up

But you thought you'd have a chance after you wanna disrespect me?

Let him apologize, and eat it in a Bentley

He named my right cheek Jennifer and left one Lopez

Can't call me stupid with this big ol' fuckin' forehead, motherfucker, let me


For two artists who like standing out from the crowd, this song simply blended in with what streams well. But, I am sure the music video will give everything the song should have gave.


 


 


DOLLA SIGN SLIME

Track: 9


Now, where I had high hopes for "Scoop," I was less thrilled about Megan Thee Stallion teaming up with troll king Lil Nas X on "Dolla Sign Slime." There is a business saying, "If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room." I relate that to how I view rap collaborations, where I don't want these girls getting on too many tracks with rappers, especially men, who will not motivate them to sharpen their #2 pencils. But, there is also another saying, "Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get."


I pressed play, I heard the horns kick in, and Lil Nas X says, "Y'all take a rumor, then y'all go and wear it out." My first thought was, "Boy, if you don't preach!" I was into Lil Nas X talk'n his shit. When we get to the hook, he has me shoulder boppin. So I'm feeling optimistic but still aware that Megan has to fit with Lil Nas X.

The minute I heard Megan giggle, I knew all my preconceived notions about this song were wrong. The song works. Megan is talking her shit, fully aware that she is the hottest rap girl right now and has the biggest target on her back.

They can't stop me

Say I can't do it, bitch, watch me (Watch me)

All you lame hoes turned hatin' to a hobby

Damn, watchin' me gotta turn you on (Turn you on)

I should have my own category in porn

Ooh, I'm just such an obsession

Tea about me, your IG suggestions

Thick, no add-on prosthetics

Everything about me came from genetics (Yeah)

I been gettin' money, I ain't new to this

Miss one, catch one, I ain't new to fish

But if he throwin' that rod (That rod)

And I get hooked, then you doin' your job

Baby, all these hoes imitate me

You gon' fuck a Stan or the real Slim Shady?

Toxic, suck his soul out, then block him

Got more cream than a sundae topping, ah


Lil Nas X and Megan Thee Stallion surprisingly complimented each other on this catchy song that offers Quotables and has a high replay value.

 

Props to both artists for supporting the "gay agenda."
