From chart topping hits to breaking records as having the first female-led rap song to land a number one spot in 28 years, Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, also known as Meg Thee Stallion can add Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 to her list of success. A piece written by Taraji P. Henson, showcases why the female entertainer deserved to be on that list.
“She is the epitome of tenacity,” Henson wrote. “You would be a fool to think that’s all there is to her. She’s deep. She’s enrolled in college. She’s an entertainer. She’s a free spirit; I see that in her. The industry might try to pigeonhole her in this rap game, but she’s got a plan that’s much bigger. And we got her. I just want her to keep winning.” The Empire star also recalls of the first time she ever heard the Houston- artist freestyle on-air, saying [Meg] rode the beat unlike any one she’s ever heard. Continuing that throughout her losses and experiences, Meg has been able to still be loving and sweet.
Other big names featured on the 2020 list include: Naomi Osaka, Maya Moore, Tomikas Adeyemi, Ibram X. Kendi, Tyler Perry, The Weekend, Dapper Dan, just to name a few.
