The “Savage” star took to Instagram to flaunt her “body-ody-ody” on Instagram Stories. She wore nothing but long, sharp, fang-like nails and the glow from a green light.

Megan also posted a series of three photos spelling out “Act One” with a snake swallowing its tail as the “O” on Instagram. She captioned the trilogy “Let’s Begin” with a snake emoji on each picture.
The three posts include a scary series of shots continuing the snake theme. One carousel features a close-up of fangs fit for a queen, Megan baring her sexy snake-like grill, and the rapper seemingly ready to bite a woman lying at her knees.
Other shots include Megan holding a white snake and stacks of spiked bracelets on her wrists. Thee Stallion undeniably ate that while looking like a snack across the cryptic clips and photos.

Like plenty of other frustrated, fed up, and phenomenally talented other Black women, Megan Thee Stallion reached the point of “f*ck it, I’ll do it myself.” Megan’s label not only failed her but seemed to actively sabotage her meteoric rise. Now, she’s taking control of her career. The 28-year-old isn’t just securing the bag, she’s the whole bank!
According to Vulture, the “Bongos” baddie revealed she’s running the show for her next album. With three Grammy wins, a legion of die-hard hotties, and an avalanche of endorsement deals, Meg’s money is even longer her statuesque stallion legs. On Wednesday, Oct. 11, Megan announced plans to self-fund her “completely independent” next album.

The TSU graduate took to Instagram Live to share the exciting new money moves with her Hotties.
“The next shit y’all about to see about to be all straight from Megan Thee Stallion, Megan Thee Stallion brain, Megan Thee Stallion wallet. I’m so excited to be doing something for the first time independent, since it was just me and my mama,” she recalled.
“I don’t wanna sign to a new label right now because … I just wanna do it myself.”
So, Megan Thee Stallion ain’t waiting around for no judge to drop music. She is going to fund her own shit. That means she has total control.
I love the proactivity. There are girls fighting to NOT drop; while Megan is putting her money where her mic is👏🏾

After an epic debut with her label working against her, imagine what she can do as a free agent. As BOSSIP previously reported, she sued 1501 for $1 million in damages for unpaid royalties. After a court victory considering the Something for the Hotties mixtape an album, Traumazine fulfilled her contractual obligations to the label.

Much like her fellow Texas titan Beyoncé, Megan has everyone on high alert. The “act one” teaser only has fans hungry for more, and it looks like she’s working on something fans can really sink their teeth into.
