    Rap is an extrovert’s game, but the dynamism that Megan possesses is nearly unmatched. Her verses are absolutely electrifying, packing the heat she sponged up from her favorites like UGK, Project Pat, and Trina. Sprinkle a little Memphis here, some Miami bass there, and a bit of Houston swagger, and it’s a chemistry experiment gone horribly right.

    No sole record matches the adept level of musicianship exemplified in her breakout hit “Big Ole Freak,” but Fever’s dedication to eschewing pop-leaning material wins big with the everyday people, strippers and strip club aficionados.

    She has prepared her whole life for the opportunity to challenge the coastal elites for a seat at rap’s table, and Fever is her folding chair.

    At the end of the day, this project shows Megan Thee Stallion in her most refined element--confident, powerful and never submissive.

    Megan Thee Stallion’s sex raps (“Pimpin,” “Sex Talk” and many more) are raw, luridly detailed and completely unfazed. On Fever, there are only two guests, both men: Juicy J, a pioneer of hip-hop filth, and the up-and-comer DaBaby. Both provide verses that, had they appeared on their own albums, might have seemed unduly crass or cringey. But here, the ridiculous brags seem almost charming--they’re just trying to keep up.

    With near-peerless levels of confidence, fearlessly bold lyricism, and relentless, expertly crafted beats, Fever establishes Megan Thee Stallion as a figure in Southern rap. As she grows into a command of her strengths and her personality, she creates songs that are wilder, more raw, and more instantaneously exciting than most of her contemporaries.

    The album is fun for that amount of time but doesn’t chart a new course for women in rap or rappers as a whole. Not every album needs to or should. “Fever” is our Trina for 2019. She won’t change the world but she will get you to talk about sex, baby.

Her potential and energy is far beyond anyone else's, and this debut commercial mixtape harnesses that and expresses it for everyone to see. 9/10 = A Expand

    fever - 8.2

    "fever" is the soundtrack to a revolutionary 2019. in a society dedicated to the tug-of-war of women's rights, "fever" gives a new generation of women empowerment and nerve. with "fever", megan had inducted herself into a hall of fame of female rappers with sublime lyricism and each of her tracks, although they can feel like they can blend at times, have their own personality and cover their own topic, without taking away from the overall theme. an amazing album overall.

    would reccomend: "realer", "simon says"
