Hashtag #MeganTheeGraduate was all over the Internet after Megan Thee Stallion collected her graduation degree from Texas Southern University on Saturday, December 11. The ‘Savage’ hitmaker, who took to the stage during the ceremony, shared pictures on Twitter and Instagram from one of the biggest milestones of her life. The three-time Grammy-winning emcee looked more than elated after she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Health Administration from the historically Black college in her Houston hometown.
Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, had first shared the link to her graduation ceremony with her fans on Twitter. She later posted the stunning images with a caption reading, “WE DID IT HOTTIES.” On Instagram, where Megan enjoys close to 27 million followers, remembered her late parents saying, “Meg Thee Graduate I know my parents are looking down on me so proud Thank you everyone for all the love today.” Megan looked stunning in the black robe as she attended her graduation ceremony at her university. Social media users too congratulated the rapper on her big achievement while also trolling BTS saying they could not do it.

How did Megan Thee Stallion balance rap career with college?
Megan originally graduated in October 2021- a dream of hers she has spoken about time and again. Despite staying occupied with her successful music career, Megan never quit her college as she wanted to make her late mother proud. The female emcee was spotted at concerts, award shows and was also releasing new music yet she never diverted her focus from her studies.
Speaking about honoring her late mother’s legacy, she earlier told People magazine, “I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud.” Her mother Holly Thomas died in March 2019 after battling brain cancer. Megan added, “She saw me going to school before she passed.” The skillful rapper, unfortunately, lost her father when she was a teenager and also lost her grandmother shortly after her mother died. “I want my big mama to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed,” said Megan. She added, “My grandmother that’s still alive used to be a teacher, so she’s on my butt about finishing school. 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.”
