Megan Pete Early Life

Megan Pete ‘Megan Thee Stallion’, born February 15, 1995, is a female rap artist from Houston, Texas. The seductive femcee is a full-time college student, as well as a choreographed dancer and model. As a child, Megan entertained herself by watching her mom’s collection of freestyle DVDs. “I watched those video compilations, so I’m thinking that’s just how it go,” she says, referring to the creative spirit of putting lyrical skill to the test. “So by the time it’s time for me to do it, I’m like This is what I know, and this is what it’s supposed to be.”

While music is her main priority, one of her goals after she graduates is to open up assisted living facilities around Houston — which she says will be staffed by her fellow classmates, since she understands the struggle of finding a job after college. “I try not to make me being a rapper a huge deal,” she says. “Just like I’m missing class sometimes because I have to do a show, somebody [else] missed a class because they don’t want to be there. They can’t treat either one of us no different. I just try to get all my work done and turned in as soon as I can.”

Pretty Time Entertainment Management

Under her mother’s management company, Pretty Time Entertainment Management, the Texas native first began to gain notoriety after meeting super producer TA and releasing her first single “Like a Stallion” in April 2016. After dropping a number of hot verses on a few Texas Cyphers, her verse on ‘The Houston Cypher’ over Drakes 4pm in Calabasas caught on like wildfire, and placed her as a top trending topic in Houston on Twitter. From there her online following took off. Soon after, she released her mixtape ‘Rich Ratchet’ on Soundcloud and MyMixtapez, and then her first EP ” Make It Hot” soon followed.

T. Farris

In February 2018, Megan linked with a Houston legend, T. Farris, which led to her signing to 1501 Certified, a record label owned by retired baseball player, Carl Crawford. Her highly anticipated project ‘Tina Snow’ was released June 10 2018, and debuted at #11 on iTunes Hip.-Hop charts. The rap siren is certainly a new force to be recognized and reckoned with. The H-Town Hottie is from the dirty south, but she has a vendetta for the top.

“I feel like I have to put on for my city, because we have so many legends and so many greats,” Megan tells RS. “But I don’t feel like we ever really had a female rapper come from Houston or Texas and shut shit down. So that’s where I’m coming from with it.”

Who is Megan Pete ‘Megan The Stallion’?

Megan got a firsthand look at the recording process as a kid thanks to her mother’s rap career under the name Holly Wood. Megan Pete always knew she wanted to be a rapper. She grew up in a neighborhood called Dead End, part of the larger South Park area of Houston’s southside — home of the legendary Screwed Up Click. Under the leadership of the late DJ Screw, they introduced the world to the smooth, slowed down sound of Houston rap.

“This where the trill is at,” Megan says matter of factly. “We just do real shit on the Southside. Like, we are rich in culture on this side of town. You might see a nigga riding down the street on a horse, pulling up to the light.” She busts out laughing at the thought of that scene.

Megan didn’t have to look that far for artistic inspiration. Her mom was a well-known local rapper for the majority of Megan’s childhood, performing under the name Holly-Wood. She grew up regularly hearing her family play the likes of UGK, Three 6 Mafia, and Biggie Smalls. She’d even tag along to studio sessions with her mother.

“Back then, I used to be more quiet, ‘cause I was just observing everything,” she says of her childhood. “And I used to be kind of a cry baby because I was spoiled. I was an only child so, at home, I’m turnt up by myself, doing whatever I wanna do.”

She remembers kids in school being mean to her around that time, too, but says it was her mother who gave her the confidence that’s become her hallmark. “I finally told my mom, and she like, Look Megan, fuck them hoes. They don’t like you ‘cause they hating on you,” she says with a half-cracked smile. “So I went to school the next day — you know when yo’ mama give you the green light, you go all out. Ever since then, I been turnt up.”

‘Thee Stallion’

Megan got the nickname “Thee Stallion” in high school — stallion being a standard Texas title applied to tall, attractive women — before she ever laid down one bar. That changed when she got to college.

“When you go to college you can just be whoever you wanna be. So I got there and I’m like, Yeah, I’ma rapper,” she says. “One day I was at this party, and these dudes was freestyling and I was like, I could rap, and they was like, No you can’t.” Megan says she dropped a couple bars for them to show off her stuff. “They was like Oh! So then everybody around school knew me as Thee Stallion. And she could rap.”

Music and Label

From 2001 to 2007, Holly released music and made attempts to start her own label. One of her biggest hits was a single dedicated to the late Houston legend DJ Screw, which received airplay on local hip hop station 97.9 The Box. This six year career was enough to inspire Megan. “I’ve been writing since I was maybe seven,” she says. “I was kind of shy about telling people that I could rap for the longest.”

After enrolling in Texas Southern University to study health administration, Megan saw her male classmates freestyling, which inspired her to do the same. Soon she was recording cyphers and freestyles around campus — and building up the confidence to approach her mother with her newfound talent and more than slightly suggestive lyrics. “I went home and told her I could rap, and she was like, ‘No you can’t,’” Megan says. “I’m like, ‘Yes I can.’ I started rapping and she was like ‘Oh my god! No, you not coming out ’til you’re 21!” (She says her lyrics at the time were “like how I rap now, but probably a little bit more ratchet.”)

Her mother recently quit a full-time job to become Megan’s manager, and Megan says she’s happy to have her there at shows, interviews and label negotiations, even when their perspectives conflict. “I’d rather get into it with my mama than get into it with a stranger,” she says.

In-between shows around the country and recording her upcoming studio debut, Fever — where she plans to debut a new alter ego, Hot Girl Meg — Megan still wakes up every morning as a full-time junior at Texas Southern University. “After Tina Snow dropped, I had so many performances and so many appearances, and I’m in the studio all the time,” Megan recalls breathlessly. “I’m like ‘Shit, I got to go to school!’ This is too much.”

While music is her main priority, one of her goals after she graduates is to open up assisted living facilities around Houston — which she says will be staffed by her fellow classmates, since she understands the struggle of finding a job after college. “I try not to make me being a rapper a huge deal,” she says. “Just like I’m missing class sometimes because I have to do a show, somebody [else] missed a class because they don’t want to be there. They can’t treat either one of us no different. I just try to get all my work done and turned in as soon as I can.”

Criticism

Megan takes issue with the criticism she’s seen that her graphic lyrics are unbecoming of her as a female rapper. “You let the boys come up in here and talk about how they gon’ run a train on all our friends and they want some head and they want to shoot everything up, and they want to do drugs,” she says, sounding annoyed. “Well, we should be able to go equally as hard. I don’t want to hear none of that ‘That’s offensive!’ or ‘All she talk about is pussy.’” She and her peers are redefining what femininity means to them, asserting their sexuality on their own terms. And while the reception to her music has been overwhelmingly positive, especially from women, she isn’t bothered by the occasional hate comment from male listeners: “I know I’m striking a nerve that’s pissing that one specific man off.”

When she needs to feel grounded, she says, she confides in her mother. Sometimes, she even talks to herself in the mirror. “[I’ll say,] ‘We been through too much, Meg. We got this.’ and I’m like, ‘You know what? We do got this.’”

“I’m just ready to take over,” Megan Pete continues. “Everybody was seeking me. There were so many different labels coming to me and they just didn’t seem right, but 300… they wanted me bad. It felt like a family.”
