Before she was known as Megan Thee Stallion — Megan auditioned for VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop (who knew)

Everyone has to start somewhere, and back in the day, a then-unknown Tina Snow thought that making it on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop was her ticket.
Before she was known as Megan Thee Stallion — and before she hooked up with the most famous L&HH alum, Cardi B, for “WAP” — Meg just wanted to get some screen time on the series.
“It’s Megan Thee Stallion, aka Young Tina Snow, aka the H-Town Hottie. I’m from Houston Texas, and I’m just the best female rapper that’s popping right now,” says Megan in the audition tape released by VH1 this week as part of its #LHHUnlocked series. “And on top of that, I’m a full-time college student, okay.”
The clip asks, “Did y’all know @theestallion was ALMOST a Love and Hip Hop alum? Would you have liked to have had a Hot Girl SEASON?”
As the clip goes on, Meg notes that her mother was an MC and that one day she told her she wanted to rap as well, even though moms didn’t think it was a good idea. “Megan Thee Stallion is just gonna become that household name,” she told her. “When you’re talking about those popping rappers, I’m going to be in that conversation.”
Even though the world had not yet been alerted to her prodigious talent and VH1 didn’t sign her up, after seeing clip, LHH cast member Sukihana — who has a cameo in the “WAP” video — was blown away, saying, “That is everything. Y’all fumbled the bag. Y’all should have put her on the show.”
