Megan Pete was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Her mother, Holly Thomas, rapped under the name Holly-Wood and would bring her daughter with her to recording sessions, instead of putting Pete in daycare.
Megan Thee Stallion began writing her own raps at age 16. When she revealed to her mother that she wanted to rap, Holly required that Megan wait until she was 21 to pursue rapping as a career. Her mother, although impressed by her daughter‘s rapping skills, commented that her lyrics were too suggestive and “ratchet” for her young age. Once Pete began rapping, she continued writing sexual and “ratchet” lyrics.[
In 2013, a clip of Megan Thee Stallion went viral, where she was battling against male opponents in a “cypher” while a student at Prairie View A&M University. The viral video helped Pete gain a larger digital presence and following on social media. She has garnered fans by posting her freestyles on her Instagram since college. She refers to her fans as “hotties”, and credits her hyperactive fan base for her early success. She adopted the stage name Megan Thee Stallion because she was referred to as a stallion during adolescence due to her height and beauty. She is 5’10”.
After taking time off school, she resumed her studies at Texas Southern University in health administration, where she is a third year student as of 2019. Megan also attended Pearland High School in Pearland, Texas and graduated in 2013.
Megan Thee Stallion is known for her confidence, sensuality, and explicit lyrics.
Megan originated the viral catchphrase “hot girl summer” on social media. She first used the phrase in a tweet on April 14, 2018. It later appeared on the Fever album cover, which read “She’s thee HOT GIRL and she’s bringing THEE HEAT.” She defined the term as “…women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up their friends, doing you.” She has applied to trademark the term.
Hot Girl Summer is set to be released on August 9, 2019.
