Megan Thee Stallion has had a "Hot Girl Summer" and made quite an impact on hip-hop.

In an article published by PAPER today (Aug. 8), the Houston rapper gets candid regarding her musical upbringing. Megan explains that her mom has served as inspiration throughout her career. The "Big Ole Freak" rapper recalls listening to Biggie and writing raps with her mother. As a result, Megan feels as though her success was "bound to happen."

"I feel like off the strength that my mom was a rapper, and the music that her and my dad put in my ear as a child, it was bound to happen," she revealed. "Me watching her write and me watching her go in the studio and lay her verses down. Just to see how dedicated she was, that was normal to me. That just became the thing that I saw around my house. We bumping Pimp C, we listening to Three 6 all the time, we listening to Biggie. You know what I'm saying? I've always been a big fan of music. Just me growing up and turning into Meg Thee Stallion, this is a product of my environment."

Tomorrow (Aug. 9), Megan's latest track, "Hot Girl Summer" will make its debut. After a recent Instagram Live conversation, Minaj decided to hop on the track. Megan explained that although she kept her hotties waiting for her latest single, it will all be worthwhile.

"Hotties I kno I said my song 'HOTGIRL SUMMER' would be dropping tomorrow but now it's dropping 8/9 ! I promise it's sooo worth the wait," she wrote.

A few days ago, Minaj revealed on Twitter that her upcoming verse didn't take long to write. The New York rapper is looking forward to the record releasing tomorrow. "...Once I heard the song I fell in love. Wrote it b4 I went to sleep. None of that was planned. I had no idea meg was on live or that she would want to go live 2gthr," she wrote.
