Megan Thee Stallion lost two important people in her life this year

Earlier this year in March, Megan Thee Stallion mourned the sudden loss of her mother. Holly Thomas, who was also the rapper’s manager, was battling brain cancer. Thomas was also a rapper earlier in the career.

She told Essence, “I knew I wanted to be a rapper when I was, like, 5. My mom was a rapper. I would go to the studio with her, and that definitely showed me I can do this, I wanna do this. I remember my first time ever listening to rappers like Pimp C and Biggie, and being like, ‘All this would sound super cool if a girl was saying it.'”

One of Megan’s great-grandmothers, who she refers to as one of her grandmothers, also passed away this year.

The Instagram post reads in part, “It’s really hard for me to open up and be vulnerable most times but I know I’m not the only person dealing with these feelings around the holiday times. I see a lot of my hotties checking on me In my dm’s asking how I am and just showing me a lot of love and it really made me get emotional.”

She continued, “I’m definitely still in a bad place when it comes to the topic of my mother and great grandmother but they raised me to be strong so I’m going to continue to be strong and make them proud of me. I know that pain is temporary and I’m going to continue to get better and grow into the woman my mother knew I could be! Just remember to try to always be kind to people, check on them, uplift your loved ones because you never know what people are going through internally.”
