Several celebrities were able to turn their time on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop into a prosperous entertainment career. Cardi B is likely the standout success story from the LHH franchise as she went from being a relatively unknown internet star to being a global superstar.
Well, it turns out, Cardi’s eventual “WAP” collaborator also tried to be on Love & Hip Hop at one point. VH1 released Megan Thee Stallion’s audition tape for the show as part of the network’s #LHHUnlocked 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,” said Meg in the video. “And on top of that, I’m a full-time college student, okay.”

The southern spitter also predicted her rise to stardom. She forecasted, “Megan is gonna become a household name. When you’re talking about those popping rappers, I’m going to be in that conversation.”
LHH cast members then reacted to the Megan Thee Stallion clip. Sukihana of Love & Hip Hop: Miami, who made a cameo appearance in “WAP” with Meg and Cardi, told VH1, “That is everything. Y’all fumbled the bag. Y’all should’ve put her on the show.”
Meg went on to be one of the hottest rappers of 2020. She earned two #1 singles on the Hot 100 chart (“WAP” and “Savage Remix” featuring Beyoncé) and four Grammy nominations last year. Plus, the 25-year-old Good News album creator has graced the cover of magazines such as Time, GQ, Marie Claire, and Paper.
