A series of viral clips came across my Twitter timeline recently of rappers Megan Thee Stallion and Caresha — also known as Yung Miami of City Girls — on the latter's new talk show Caresha Please on REVOLT. In each video, the ladies were flirty, giggly, and relaxed as they bounced from topic to topic, like their thoughts on lesbian sex, their attempt at Megan’s signature tongue pose, and their thoughts on the plight of Black women.
Since its June premiere, Caresha has sat down with rapper Kevin Gates who opened up about all his salacious fantasies including being a fan of … um… let’s say sexual water sports. In the first episode, she spoke with REVOLT founder and hip-hop mogul Diddy with whom she is in a relationship of some sort. The interview was the first time since going public with their courting last year, that the pair decided to satiate the public’s curiosity about their relationship. She playfully presses him about fatherhood, why he’s never gotten married, and their relationship status which led to Caresha saying that they go together “real bad.”
Caresha Please comes during a fraught time in hip-hop media when the genre has been overrun by washed male rappers and radio personalities who have made a name for themselves by being antagonistic toward Black women.
Which made the conversation with Caresha and Megan all the more special. It was a lovely reprieve to see Megan be so comfortable in an interview, especially considering the many times she’s been objectified by interviewers, hosts, and bloggers in the short time that she’s called out on numerous occasions, including when she once tweeted, “Don’t blogs/ journalists have to have accurate/ credible sources before going with a story? Or is it just like a new I got paid to post this or I heard out from my home girl type policy these days.”
Caresha Please isn’t a cure to the ills of hip-hop media but it certainly comes as a much-needed balm to watch a show with a young Black woman at the helm and not have to feel on guard for potential sexist attacks.
On social media, some fans have even gone as far as to jokingly called Caresha 'the new Oprah' (I mean, sure, Oprah might not have never talked so candidly about her technique when it comes to performing fellatio that made even JT go “oh wow.”) But regardless, Caresha Please leans into all the things that make the City Girl wonderful.
If you aren’t tuned into Caresha Please, then you definitely need to fix that.
