Megan Thee Stallion Shares Moms Parting Words, Amid Her Passing

Holly Thomas died of brain cancer in March 2019.

Megan Thee Stallion just released her second studio album, Traumazine. While the rapper has received rave reviews, she reflects in a new interview on her late mother's final piece of advice before her untimely passing in 2019.

Speaking with Ebro and Nadeska on Apple Music 1 on The Ebro Show, the "Plan B" artist is opening up on how she's been coping since her mom, Holly Thomas, died due to brain cancer. Meg also said her mother left her instructions on how to move on with her life.

“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. It was something big. This was going to be one of the first biggest performances that I ever had,” the 27-year-old recounted.

She adds, “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." 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?' She said, 'Don't stop,' so then I just took that literally. And we're here today.”

The Grammy award-winning rapper said that grieving the death of Thomas is a daily process.

“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.' And then I be, 'No, you're Megan Thee Stallion… you gotta take care of you,'” she says.

Later sharing, “She was my best friend, my manager, she was my everything, and I know she's proud of me today.”

The full episode will air on Apple Music 1 on Monday at 4:30 p.m. ET.
