Megan Thee Stallion took her music career to a new level when she signed a record deal in 2018. While the Houston rapper’s talents are being backed by 300 Entertainment, her academic journey is still ongoing. Her mind is set on getting that degree.
“For anybody who’s in college, once you start and you already start spending money with it, and you already put all this time into your education, I don’t feel like it’s necessary to give up because you already dedicated so much to it,” Megan told DJ Booth. “You might as well go ahead and see it all the way through. You started something and you worked so hard at it, and you just give up in the middle? That’s not something that I would do. It’s not something that I believe in. Once I start a project or I start working on something, I see it through.”
The balancing act is still challenging for the artist. “At first, I didn’t think it was going to be hard, because at first I didn’t have a lot of bookings and I wasn’t moving around and things like that. The more and more that I grew, I’m going out of town a lot,” she explained. “I’m signed now so I’m back and forth between the states. I’m like, ‘Dang! I’m sorry, I can’t come to school today.’ My teachers, sometimes they’re understanding, sometimes they’re not, so I try to get all my work done beforehand. I’m not saying I’m the perfect student [laughs], but I’m trying real hard.”
