Megan’s mother, Holly Thomas, also an artist, passed away in March 2019 of brain cancer, People reports.

“I just be taking it day by day and I be like ‘Lord, thank you for getting me up out this bed’ because sometimes I just wanna say ‘I’ll lay here for another hour, I’m not going.'” Megan told Ebro and Nedeska.

 

“And then I be like, ‘No, you’re Megan Thee Stallion. You gotta take care of you,’ who else is gonna take care of you?” she continued.

“At this point in my life, I really realized that my mama was really driving the car for a long time. I didn’t even have to think about too many things when mama was with me,” she added, remembering her mother. “I feel like it is just recently that it’s clicking to me, like who can I ask anything to?”

Even though Meg appears to be outgoing on television, she undoubtedly has a solitary existence since she doesn’t want “to put people in my business.”

“When I’m going through something personal, I’m like, ‘I just got to pray,’ because I don’t even know who I can ask. Who can I ask about this situation? And who do I trust?” Megan asked.

Before her mother’s passing, she insisted the Traumazine rapper keep performing and working toward her rap dreams — and although Megan is still mourning her mother, she has taken her mother’s advice literally and hasn’t stopped working since.

“She was like, ‘Just because I’m sick, that don’t mean yous not supposed to be going to do your work. You got to a show tomorrow.’ I had a show in California for the first time … it was at Diesel, Megan said. “It was something big. This was going to be one of the first biggest performances that I ever had.”

“And she was just like, ‘Just because I’m sick, you and T Farris, y’all don’t stop. Y’all need to go to LA and still do your show,” she added.

 

“And I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah. All right. I’m going to be back up here in a little bit.’ And then it was just over so quick, and I was just like, ‘Oh my God, what do I do?’ Megan said tearfully. “She said, ‘Don’t stop,’ so then I just took that literally. And we’re here today.”

Staying true to her mother’s words, Meg has been promoting her second album, Traumazine.

 

Recently during a fan meetup, Megan was gifted a picture of her mother and herself from when she was a baby by a fan who drew the beautiful piece. Meg was elated by the thoughtful gesture and posed with it for a picture.
