Megan Thee Stallion’s mom, Holly Thomas, died in March of 2019 from a brain tumor. The former rapper, who went by Holly-Wood, was a major influence on Megan and her career, and was also the 25-year-old rapper’s best friend.

“My mom is the first female rapper I’ve ever known. I’m thinking, like, ‘Okay, yeah, this is normal. Everybody’s doing this,’” Megan said in an interview with Vulture in 2019.

While Holly was rapping and thought Megan was watching TV or playing quietly, Megan would secretly listen to her mom do what she loved to do. “Really, I was ear to the door, thinking, ‘Yeah, uh-huh, I’ma do that, too.’”

Their close-knit bond didn’t stop there. Holly became Megan’s manager while she was going to college after she saw how serious Megan was taking her budding rap career.
