Revealing Details About Megan Thee Stallion


Born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete on Feb. 15, 1995, Megan Thee Stallion was first inspired to make music by her rapper mother, Holly Thomas, who performed under the name Holly-Wood and brought Megan to her studio when she was a child. "My mom [was] the first female rapper I've ever known," Megan told Vulture in a 2019 interview about her introduction to rap, saying she listened to her mother in the studio with her "ear to the door."

Inspired by her mom to pursue music, Megan told Rolling Stone that she's been writing lyrics "since [she] was maybe seven," and was shy at first about sharing her hip-hop talents. When she finally began chasing her hip-hop career, her mother was initially surprised by the adult nature of her lyrics. "At first, she was a little taken aback, like, 'Megan, where did this come from? Why are you talking like that? I can't believe you,'" Megan recalled to Vulture.

But her mother's reaction was temporary, and when Megan's own career began to take off, she brought her mother on board to join her team. "She quit her job, like her regular job, and now she's my full-time manager," she told HipHopDX in 2018 about working with her mom, calling it a "happy" partnership.
