Megan Thee Stallion’s recent release, “HISS,” has stirred controversy shortly after its debut, with fans picking up on alleged shade thrown at Nicki Minaj, among others. The song, which dropped on Friday, contains lines that appear to be aimed at sparking disputes with Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, and Tory Lanez.

One of the most controversial lines in the song references Megan’s Law, where the singer chants, “These h*es don’t be mad at Megan, these h*es mad at Megan’s Law/ I don’t really know what the problem is, but I guarantee y’all don’t want me to start.” Megan’s Law is a federal statute mandating law enforcement to make public information available about registered sex offenders. The reference alludes to Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, who faced legal consequences in 2022 for failing to register as a sex offender when he and Minaj moved to California.

The beef between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj has a history that predates the release of “HISS.” The animosity reportedly began when Megan and Cardi B found success in the music industry, with Nicki allegedly feeling jealous. Despite collaborating on “Hot Girl Summer” in 2019, Megan unfollowed Nicki on Instagram, leading to a public falling out. In 2021, Nicki reciprocated by unfollowing Megan on social media, solidifying the perception of them as rivals.

The exchange of disses between the two artists began before “HISS.” Nicki’s song “Seeing Green” in May 2021 was interpreted by fans as an indirect swipe at Megan. In response, Megan’s track “Thot S**t” seemed to be a retaliation, featuring lyrics like, “B***h dry hatin’, tryna get noticed. Man, ain’t nobody come to see you, Otis, look.”

With the release of “HISS” and Nicki’s subsequent diss track on social media, it appears that the feud between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj is far from over. The ongoing tension and public jabs between the two artists suggest that the rivalry is likely to continue heating up.
