It's been a crazy few years for Megan Thee Stallion. From freestyling in Houston to collabs with some of the biggest names in the industry, this legendary rapper has been go-go-go in her music game all while wrapping up a college degree. But the tassel was worth the hassle and our girl's about to graduate!

Megan shared the good news on her Instagram page with 25-plus million followers. "Taking my graduation pics today," the Girls in the Hood rapper shared. "I can't wait for y'all to see." And her fans couldn't have been happier for her. In just eight hours, the photo series raked in over 2,000,000 likes and tons of supportive comments. "OMGGGGG CONGRATSSS," Lil Nas wrote, with another user adding, "Megan you're such an inspiration for us all! Congrats queen." And while the road to the degree wasn't as fabulous as these pics, Meg stuck with it.

Over a year ago, the 26-year-old rapper sat down with Entertainment Tonight's Keltie Knight to explain her dedication to the degree. When asked why it was so important for the successful rapper to get her degree, Meg gave an honest and heartwarming answer. "When my mother was alive, she definitely was pushing me to finish college," the W.A.P. artist explained. "So I'm definitely going to do it for [her and my Grandmother]." It was clear that no amount of fame or fortune could top her education, and so the Texas State University student stayed determined as ever.

But besides making her late mother proud, Meg's studies served another purpose. With her Health Administration degree, the busy rapper hoped to squeeze in one more side gig by opening an assisted living facility for seniors. The H-Town Hottie's dream was to give back to her community and show love to seniors in the way that her grandmother had shown her love all those years. Talk about inspirational!
