Megan Thee Stallion is giving credit to her late mother for pushing her to become a female rapper. While accepting the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the 2021 BET Awards Sunday night, the rapper held back tears as she thanked her mother who passed way in 2019.
"I think highly of all the women nominated in this category. Everybody knows I am a girl's girl, and I just want to say, thank you mama ," an emotional Megan said. "Thank you mama for even putting it in me to want to be a female rapper and putting the work ethic inside of me and the drive and the push."
"She can't be here with me today, but I still think about her everyday and she is the reason why I keep going," she added. "I just want to say thank you to all the women who support me, because it's really appreciated."
Before taking home the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Megan and Cardi B won the award for Video of the Year for their hit, "WAP."
"Now that my breath is caught and I can talk about it, I really forgot to say, thank you, Cardi, for even putting me on "W.A.P." because to be acknowledged of one of my peers I think so highly of, I think highly of all the women nominated in this category," Megan added about their "W.A.P." win while accepting her Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award.
Meg's performance highlighted her talented dancers and their rump-shaking moves as they twerked onstage. Sporting an icy blonde wig, a black and sheer bodysuit with matching boots and dark shades, the rapper made sure all eyes were on her as she rapped and danced with her crew, proving that those knees will never fail her.
