After winning three Grammys and achieving superstardom, Megan Thee Stallion said she is fulfilling her late mother's wish that she graduate from college.

"2021 finna graduate collegeeee, taking my graduation pics today," the "Hot Girl Summer" singer wrote Monday on Instagram. "I can't wait for y'all to see."

The singer began her college studies at Prairie View A&M University, then when her career took off, she eventually switched to part-time, online courses to receive a bachelor's degree in health administration from Texas Southern University.

"I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud," the 26-year-old rapper said in an interview with People. "She saw me going to school before she passed."

Megan previously revealed that her mother, Holly Thomas, had a brain tumor and died in March 2019.

"I'm doing it for me, but I'm also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today," she added.

Now with a sizzling music career, plus fashion endorsements, and recently becoming a Popeyes franchise owner, the artist has special plans to utilize her degree.

"I'm gonna open an assisted-living facility and use the money that I make from rapping to open it," she told People. "Then I'm gonna let my classmates run it."
