It looks like the release of Megan Thee Stallion’s new single, “Girls In The Hood”, which samples Eazy-E’s iconic debut single “Boyz In The Hood” has unexpectedly led to a public war of words between the hip hop legend’s daughters.

The 25-year-old rapper’s new song officially dropped on Friday, but prior to its arrival Eazy-E’s daughters Ebie Wright, 28, and ReeMarkable (Henree Wright), 27 took to social media to square off about whether the Houston native should have ever been allowed access to the sample.

The drama began after ReeMarkable took to her Instagram to share that she was “bothered” that Megan was given the green light to rap over her father’s legendary track.

She started off by acknowledging, “as long as y’all paying homage to my father, I f–k with that a 100 percent.” However, she then went on to explain that she took issue with “the people in the background that press the ‘ok’ button” for artists to sample her father’s work when his own children haven’t been allowed the same grace.

“He’s got kids that you won’t write s–t off for…I’ve got siblings that want to do so much in the likeness of my father, but we can’t, unless we want to get some papers thrown on our table. Cease and desist. Someone tell me how we stop that. Because we want our daddy legacy.”

While some believed she made valid points, the video prompted ReeMarkable’s half-sister, Ebie, to respond on Instagram stating, “That girl that’s speaking out on it, Ree? You guys have got to stop getting me confused with this girl. I don’t know her, my father didn’t know her.”

The N.W.A. leader, born Eric Wright, passed away in 1995 when both women were young children. But there appears to be some dissent about who has the right to stake a claim to his legacy.

“It’s really strange to me that every single time something that has to do with my dad comes up, she’s the first one running to the Internet to speak up as if she’s the spokesperson for my father or my family,” Ebie continued.

“It’s really, really f–king weird…the only person who has been fighting, and is still fighting to this day for my father’s estate and to make things right, is me. Literally me and my mother, Tracy Jernagin.”

The harsh critique seemingly confused ReeMarkable, who said in a follow-up Instagram video, “I’m your sister. We ain’t family, we blood. That’s what it is. But I’ll always be your sister baby girl…Stop with the jealous s–t.”
