Megan Thee Stallion delivered a powerful performance of her single ‘Savage’ at the season premiere of Saturday Night Live last night (October 3). Later in the show, Young Thug joined the Houston rapper for a performance of their recent collaborative single ‘Don’t Stop’. Check it out below.
During Meg’s performance of ‘Savage’, the text ‘PROTECT BLACK WOMEN’ was boldly displayed behind her. Halfway through the song, the rapper played audio from Malcolm X (“The most disrespected, unprotected, neglected person in America is the black woman”) and activist Tamika Mallory (“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout negroes that sold our people into slavery”) before making her own statement:
“We need to protect our black Women and love our Black women. Because at the end of the day we need our Black women. We need to protect our Black Men and stand up for our Black men because at the end of the day, we’re tired of seeing hashtags of our Black men.”
Meg also made an appearance in a sketch about hoes in the NBA bubble and rapped a verse as part of comedic music video. Watch that below as well.
Next Saturday (October 10), Justin Bieber is set to take on the SNL stage.
