In a review for the New York Times, Jon Caramanica praises Megan for being “raw, luridly detailed, and completely unfazed.”
“When Megan Thee Stallion raps, the words arrive like jabs: confident, precise, disorientingly direct. Especially in an era in which other skill sets have taken priority in hip-hop — melody, character development, absurdity — the mere clarity of the rhymes is jolting, the blue-collarness of the craft invigorating. Megan Thee Stallion came to spar,” Jon wrote.
