Megan Pete (born February 15, 1995), known professionally as Megan Thee Stallion, is an American rapper. She released the EP Tina Snow in June 2018. She signed to 300 Entertainment in November 2018, making her the first female rapper on the label.

Megan Pete was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Her mother, Holly Thomas, rapped under the name Holly-Wood and would bring her daughter with her to recording sessions. Instead of putting her in daycare, Megan was brought to the studio by her mother.

Pete began writing her own raps at age 14. When she revealed to her mother that she wanted to rap, Thomas required that Pete wait until she was 21 to pursue rapping as a career. Her mother, although impressed by her rapping skills, commented that her lyrics were too suggestive and "ratchet" for her young age. Once she began rapping, she continued writing sexual and "ratchet" lyrics.
