Megan Thee Stallion Pays Tribute to Her Late Mom in a Heartfelt Post
Megan Thee Stallion recently paid tribute to her late mom in an emotional social media post. The rapper has been candid in the past about how she owes her entire career to her mother.
2019 has been a good year for Megan professionally – from back-to-back hits to becoming an advocate for women empowerment through "Hot Girl Summer" – but it was also the year of her greatest loss.
Megan (birth name Megan Pete) lost her mom and former manager Holly Thomas in March, and judging by her recent Instagram post, it’s apparent the "Big Ole Freak" rapper is still grieving.
"I knew I wanted to be a rapper when I was, like, 5. My mom was a rapper."
Megan took to the social media platform with a throwback video of her mother, and one can see just how close they were. In the clip, Megan teases her mom, who slightly twirls in a yellow jacket and skinny jeans. "That girl look like money, baby!" hyped the rapper.
The 24-year-old rapper’s caption was even more heartbreaking and spoke of a daughter missing her mother terribly:
"I miss my mama, all we did was crack jokes all day. She is the only person that could make me cry laughing. I be feeling so lost without her but I try my best to keep my [expletive] on track how she would."
Fans and friends alike showed up in the comment section with some words of encouragement for Megan. "She definitely watchin over u! With a huge smile," fellow rapper Maliibu Miitch wrote.
"She’s literally lighting your way sis," chimed in another supporter. "Stay under that beam. We love you."
The Houston, Texas native has always been open about how her career wouldn’t be a reality if not for her mother. Holly was a rapper who performed under the name Holly-Wood, and it was at her recording sessions that Megan’s dream of becoming a rap queen was born.
She told ESSENCE in an interview earlier this year:
"I knew I wanted to be a rapper when I was, like, 5. My mom was a rapper. I would go to the studio with her, and that definitely showed me I can do this, I wanna do this. I remember my first time ever listening to rappers like Pimp C and Biggie, and being like, 'All this would sound super cool if a girl was saying it,' so I gotta go do this."
Last month, Megan also took a step further in her career by signing on to Roc Nation. "I would like to announce that I am officially a part of the @rocnation fam!!!" she announced alongside a photo with the artist management company founder Jay-Z. "The grind don’t stop!"
