According to a 2020 interview with Marie ClaireMegan Thee Stallion’s father, Joe Pete, died when she was just 15 years old and a high school freshman. While the two didn’t get the chance to spend too much time together – because Pete spent the first eight years of his daughter’s life in prison – the young rapper considered him a “full-time hustler” and her best friend.
“When he got out, we were together every day,” she said. Megan Thee Stallion also noted that her father is the reason she is so confident and has a great understanding of what to accept from people. She explained: “I saw how he treated my mother and I saw how my father treated me. I have so many strong positive influences. I will not lower my standards. “

In a tribute to Father’s Day on Instagram in 2020, Hot Girl Meg posted a setback of her with her dad with the headline, “The best dad in the world, my first best friend, my crime partner when my mom takes care of us.” Although the rapper had no parents at the age of 24, they clearly gave her all the gems to be successful in life (and that wisdom works).
