Megan Thee Stallion Makes History As 1st Female Rapper On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated 

Real hot girl action is going on! 

Megan Thee Stallion graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. She made history with the company as their first rapper/female artist on the cover. 

As reported on People, Megan was ecstatic when she found out she’d be on the cover. The “Thot Sh*t” rapper said, 

“When I got the call that they wanted me on the cover, I was like, ‘Wha—? Me?’ And to be the first female rapper on the swim cover makes it extra special. It feels amazing!”

Megan got her body right for the cover. She said,

“I had been training for months, and I was super prepared. I got into the shoot right away. [Photographer] James [Macari] said he usually doesn’t get into the water until the fourth or fifth set-up, but we were both in the ocean from the start. The day was perfect, and I had a blast.”  

She went on to say this cover shoot was one of her “best experiences.” Megan said, 

“I think they are on the forefront when it comes to diversity and inclusion because they do not fear change. They lean into it. They see the world and have it reflect on the cover and pages inside. That is why they have been so successful.” Take a look:
