Megan Thee Stallion pays homage to Eazy-E on her rowdy new record.

Hot Girl Meg gets bold and bossy on “Girls in the Hood,” the latest release to be issued by the Houston native. Borrowing beats from the West Coast legend’s dope 1987 track “Boyz-N-Tha-Hood,” Meg brags about her unapologetic sex appeal.

“The girls in the hood are always hard/ Ever since sixteen, I been havin' a job/ Knowin' nothin' in life, but I gotta get rich/ You could check the throwback pics, I been that b—ch,” the emcee boasts in the verse, leading into the sizzling chorus: “I'm a hot girl, I do hot shit/ Spend his income on my outfit/ I don't text quick 'cause I ain't thirsty/ These b—hes mad, mad, they wanna hurt me.”

“Girls in the Hood” did arrive with some unexpected controversy when Eazy’s daughter, Henree Wright, took to Instagram to vent her anger over the 25-year-old being cleared to sample her late-father’s music — something’s she claims she’s been blocked from doing in the past.

“What I’m bothered by is the people in the background who pushed the ‘OK’ button and said, ‘Go ahead and drop it, we co-sign it,’” Henree said on Instagram Live. “We write off on it.’ ‘Cause he got kids that y’all won’t write s—t off for. We’ve been trying forever.”

Drama aside, Meg’s new track, produced by IllaDaProducer & Scott Storch, was highly-anticipated considering it’s been months since she delivered new music from her third extended play, Suga, which arrived on March 6. The effort featured several catchy songs including “Captain Hook,” “B.I.T.C.H.,” and “Savage,” the latter of the three reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to a co-sign from fellow Houston icon, Beyonce, who jumped on the remix for the track back in April.
