Megan Thee Stallion becomes first black woman to grace cover of Forbes ’30 Under 30′
Megan Jovon Pete, better known as Megan Thee Stallion, has become the first Black woman to grace the cover of Forbes ’30 Under 30′.
This was announced by the musical act on her official Instagram page.
In addition to applauding herself for the admirable accomplishment, she shared the cover on her Instagram page.
The rapper was reported to have made an astonishing $13 million in 2022 from royalties, concert tickets, merchandise sales, and sponsorships.
She penned the following:
First Black Woman on the cover of @forbes 30 under 30, real hotshit. See you hotties soon.\
She said to Forbes that she is unable to take a break from work at the moment because she constantly feels as like she is not working hard enough when she is unwinding.
In her words:
I can’t slow down right now.
I’ll take a break when I’m dead. I’m trying to really build something. When I start sitting, I feel like I’m not doing enough or I’m giving somebody else the opportunity to pass me.
It’s really hard to be the first something in 2022.
I want to be bigger than just my music. I want people to know Megan as everything that she ever wanted to be. Megan the artist.
I feel I’ve always liked to dabble and dab in a lot of different things, and I feel like I got that from my mom and my dad. My dad was a street guy, he was an entrepreneur, he had his own clothing line.
I watched my mother go to work nine-to-five every day, and come home and write songs. And take me to the studio, and be a mom, and be just a good woman in general.
