The queens of the rap game are at each other’s throats after Megan Thee Stallion’s new diss track, “HISS.”


“HISS” includes many lines aimed at critics and her haters. It displays how much Megan has been attacked as a prominent woman in rap, and it claps back at them with witty lines behind a catchy beat. However, one line took the internet by storm: “These hoes don’t be mad at Megan, these hoes mad at Megan’s Law.”


On the first listen, many people missed the meaning behind this line and just thought of it as some random play on words they didn’t understand. But the alleged meaning behind the line is nothing short of brilliant.


Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, doesn’t have a particularly clean track record. Petty’s criminal history mainly comprises his 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl, which resulted in a four-year prison term. Then in July 2022, he admitted guilt for failing to register as a sex offender in California. He was placed on probation for three years.


Megan’s Law is a federal law that requires persons convicted of sex crimes against children to notify local law enforcement of any change of address or employment after release from custody.


Of course, as his wife, Nicki came to her husband’s defense. She has had a history of coming to the defense of those closest to her. In 2015, Jelani Maraj, Nicki Minaj’s brother, was convicted of predatory sexual assault after raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter at their Long Island home. Minaj bailed her brother out of jail for $100,000. However, his freedom didn’t last very long, due to his being sentenced 25 years to life in prison for sexual assault of a child in 2020.


After a series of Instagram live videos and tweets targeted at Megan Thee Stallion, Nicki Minaj recently released “Big Foot.” The song takes shots at how big Megan’s feet are, her deceased mother, her allegedly lying about being shot, and insulting her rapping skills.  The song’s first verse says, “Bad b***h she like six foot, I call her Big Foot/The b***h fell off, I said, ‘Get up on your good foot.” The song then ends with a minute-long speech from Nicki talking about a second part that will be coming soon.


Without saying her name, Megan has lit a flame in Nicki’s heart. Megan hasn’t said a word on social media about Nicki since the release of “HISS,” and leaves the world wondering if (or maybe when) she’ll say anything in response.
