Megan Thee Stallion will soon be a Hot Girl Graduate.
The "Savage" rapper announced yesterday that she will receive her undergraduate degree from Texas Southern University this year, after attending college part-time while building her successful rap career.
She shared the news on Instagram along with a decorated graduation cap, bedazzled with her catchphrase, "Real Hot Girl Sh*t." She also posted selfies with the cap, in which she wore a black top, a diamond necklace, and a black-and-red manicure featuring the colors of her soon-to-be alma mater.
"2021 finna graduate collegeeee 😛 taking my graduation pics today 😭 I can't wait for y'all to see," she wrote.
The Grammy winner, 26, enrolled at the historically Black university Prairie View A&M in 2013 and transferred to Texas Southern when her rap career started taking off. Since then, she has taken online courses toward a degree in health administration.
She has been open about juggling work and school on social media, even posting a video of herself finishing an assignment before an event in the summer of 2019, when she was having her first #hotgirlsummer.

In her March 2021 cover interview with Harper's BAZAAR, Megan revealed that her dedication to finishing her education comes from the matriarchs in her family, specifically her late mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
"Before my mom passed, she really would be on my butt about getting my degree," she said. She also recalled that her great-grandmother would always ask, "You are going to get them papers?"
The "WAP" rapper also shared her excitement at getting through school.
"I cannot wait. I'm going to have the biggest graduation party," she said. "You fought through the procrastination. You fought through crazy professors. You made it home the next day from the party and still went to class. You know what I'm saying?"
