Megan Jovon Ruth Pete (born February 15, 1995), known professionally as Megan Thee Stallion (pronounced "Megan the Stallion"), is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Originally from Houston, Texas, Megan Jovon Ruth Pete first garnered attention in 2013 when videos of her freestyling in cyphers became popular on social media platforms such as Instagram. In 2016, Megan Thee Stallion began writing and performing raps and started releasing them exclusively onto SoundCloud. Megan Thee Stallion has commercially released three EPs since 2017 -- "Make It Hot," "Tina Snow," and "Suga" -- with the latter two charting on the U.S. Billboard 200.

Eminem's superb, anti-Trump freestyle rap "The Storm" [2017-10-10] is a excellent example of a cypher.
