The rising rapper was bitten by the music bug after watching her mother perform under the stage name Holly-Wood as a child. So inspired by her mother’s skills, she began writing her own verses secretly before sharing them with her mother.

Reflecting on her experience with having a “mom-ager” who previously pursued a career in rap, she told VIBE, “Sometimes when we’re in the studio, I get her so hyped that she’s like, ‘Megan, I’m about to get in the booth and come out with another mixtape.’ I don’t think that will happen because we bump heads, and we would definitely bump heads trying to write together.”

The cause of Thomas’ death has not officially been confirmed, but the rapper has been asking fans to send prayers out for her mother for several months now.
