Megan spoke emotionally about being inspired by the women in her life growing up. “I want my big mama to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed,” she told People. “I’m doing it for me, but I’m also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
What’s next for that Megan now that she has her degree and is out here living? Well, she hinted at some possible plans for the future to as well. “I wanted to be an administrator over at a hospital, but I knew I still wanted to be Megan The Stallion… I was like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna open an assisted-living facility and use the money that I make from rapping to open it. Then I’m gonna let my classmates run it.”
After the graduation celebrations, Megan Thee Stallion is hitting the road for a U.S. tour, and you can listen to her new compilation album Something for Thee Hotties on major streaming platforms.
