Megan Thee Stallion is welcoming the arrival of her new persona in SUGA, the Houston rapper’s latest project. Clocking in at 24 minutes, the nine-track project — which she clarifies is an EP and not her debut studio album — features two guest appearances from Gunna on “Stop Playing” and Kehlani on “Hit My Phone,” leaving a lot of space for the 2019 XXL Freshman to continue shining.

Meg’s adaptable flow and penchant for hard-hitting rhymes materializes in more delicate themes continually fueled by self-love, independence, and female empowerment — the lead single “B.I.T.C.H.” already provided a sneak peek at her strong yet vulnerable side, with Meg stating that “Suga is just mess.” She opened up about her new alter ego in a recent L.A. Leakers interview with Justin Credible, saying, “You know I got a lot of personalities up here in this head. So she’s definitely my new persona that I’m introducing to everybody. Letting people know that it’s okay to be a sensitive gangsta.” She continues, “Like everybody think they so perfect. Social media got everybody striving for perfection and I’m not gon’ lie – I’m not perfect. I didn’t say I was. I got a whole bunch of stuff going on every day. I’m going through it, but I’m getting through it. So, that’s where Suga is coming from.”

SUGA arrives in the midst of her legal problems with her record label 1501 Entertainment, with Meg filing a lawsuit for at least $1 million USD in damages. A district judge in Harris County, Texas granted the rapper a temporary restraining order against the label, making it possible for the album to release today.
