It’s Hotties / Hot Boyz season as Megan Thee Stallion is the cover star for The FADER‘s Summer Music issue. Ahead of her Warehouse Live headlining show last month, senior editor Lawrence Burney caught up with Megan and got to spend a week in her stallion like shoes, watching her knock out class work, reflect on her late mother, Holly Thomas , her first ever show (a strip club during SXSW 2017 in Austin), having Q-Tip for a mentor, and map out what would the perfect stage set up be for the show.

Megan on her mom inspiring her to be strong, even after her passing:

““My momma wasn’t a weak person and she wasn’t a complainer. So I don’t wanna be like that…No matter what I’m going through, I still want to keep going,” she continued. “Just to show people you can still be strong and you can still face your everyday life. Even when everything coming down on you. I didn’’t cancel none of my shows ‘cause I just knew —I know — how my momma is, and I know she wouldn’t want me to stop.””

On the double standard she sees in the industry today:

“And then being a girl too — they criticize you harder than they criticize men,” she says. “If I was out there making little noises like Uzi and Carti be making, they would not rock with that. And not saying that they don’t be going hard, because we definitely finna turn up to both of them, but if it was a chick, like — no.”
