Megan Thee Stallion has become one of the upcoming hip-hop female acts at our time with her freestyles. She recently got signed to 300 Entertainment and is ready for the next stages of her career. The Houston native came up in the game by her fire bars on freestyle on a YouTube video and showing what she has to offer. With her previous project, Tina Snow, that was released back in June, we caught with the young stallion and discussed how she started picking up raps, her challenging core while making her recent project, what can we expect on her forthcoming project and more.
RESPECT.: How you get the name Thee Stallion?
Guys call southern girls who are tall and fine. So with me being tall and fine, I have put two and two together.
RESPECT.: With your freestyles that hit in your hometown and on social media, how was your reaction when you blew up?
Personally, no one has blown up but myself. I study and look for what’s next. I got to go harder because I am my own competitor.
RESPECT.: How did you start picking up raps?
My mom was always in the studio rapping. When leaving school, I will be in the waiting room, picking up what my mom does. By hearing the instrumentals and putting my talents into use, I put it on YouTube and many were blown away! Especially my mom when rapping in front of her for the first time. I was very serious at a young age and always wanted to be an entertainer.
RESPECT.: With the previous EP, Tina Snow, that released what can you say is your most challenging core by making the project?
Many people saw my alter ego who was Tina Snow. I am known as Hot Girl Meg with such persona and party girl ways that is very aggressive but fun.
RESPECT.: Define RESPECT.
It is earned by the way you carry yourself and allow others to carry you.
RESPECT.: As a rapper growing up from Houston, what can you say is your sound?
I wouldn’t say I sound like someone, but I have a unique sound that was influenced by Pimp C.
RESPECT.: What will the new music consist of? What will the new EP be called?
It will be better than last time by outdoing myself. The name of the EP will be Fever.
RESPECT.: By signing with 300, what made you sign with them?
300 feels like family and that was very important to me. They believed in me from the very beginning and it was the obvious choice to become their First Lady.
RESPECT.: When are you wanting to do when you graduate from Texas Southern University? Do you have a solid plan instead of doing just music?
I plan to open up an assisted living facilities around the Houston area.
RESPECT.: What do you want your fans to take by your music?
I love making my fans feel as confident as me! I want them to listen to my music and feel like they can do anything!
RESPECT.: What is your perception of the female hip-hop rap scene in this generation?
I’m just happy to see many women being recognized in hip-hop right now. I feel like only the real will last long and the ones who are just trying to ride the wave will fizzle out.
RESPECT.: How did you end getting on Wale track “Poledancer,” and how were the vibes in the studio when making the track?
I was in Los Angeles and Wale says that he love my music. When the track played, I loved how the beat was by it being sexy and crunk. I rapped in front of him, and next thing I know, we laid the verse down. A couple of days later, we did the video to it. It just happened so fast!
