If you’re waiting on an Erica Banks and Megan Thee Stallion collab, keep waiting because it doesn’t seem like we’re going to get one anytime soon.
While Erica maintains the two Texas emcees have no beef, fans couldn’t help but read between the lines in regard to Erica’s recent interview with Hot New Hip Hop.
Fans interpreted her answers as shade when the interviewer asked about her relationship with Megan.
Just for some background info, Megan’s rise to stardom began at former MLB star Carl Crawford’s record label, 1501 Entertainment. Meg has since had a tumultuous relationship with her former mentor and has distanced herself from the label amid their legal troubles while currently being represented by Roc Nation.
Megan had a banner year, and it’s only April, after securing three Grammy awards and making history with Beyonce for their song, “Savage (Remix).”
Since Megan’s relationship with 1501 went awry, Erica Banks has taken her place as the label’s newest rising star, who saw much success with her song “Buss It.”
There was speculation that the two didn’t get along, especially given Erica’s closeness to Carl. Fans believe that Erica has thrown several shots as a 1501 labelmate of Megan’s but Erica denies any beef with Meg.

But Erica had some things to say, stepping into TheShadeRoom to clear the air:
“The first part is 2 questions in one…There’s no beef, so there’s nothing to “squash” or “talk” about. Which is why when asked if I’m open to “talk” about it, I said no. Bloggers/interviewers need grow up, seriously,” she said.
Well, here’s to hoping we’ll get the Texas bop we need in the future in the name of female unity. We’ll keep you posted.
