I don't live in a big house. I'm not real extravagant or anything. I just like to be regular.
When I was a kid, my favorite rapper was 50 Cent. He was definitely a big influence on why I wanted to do music.
For the sexuality thing, I really feel like the reason I speak so blunt about it is because I held it in for so long. I never told my mom. I never told my family. I kept it to myself. Now, I'm happy with who I am. Either you accept it, or you don't. There's a lot of rappers out there that's like that, but no one's stepping up.
I tell people I'm from all over Brooklyn because I never stayed in one part of Brooklyn.
I was always a tomboy. I always wanted to be around the boys, always wanted to play sports - basketball, football, kickball, whatever it was. I was real aggressive. I wanted to be around the bros!
I hear from all different people, not just people like me, or lesbians. It be straight people, it be grown men, it be grown women, people that have been sick or depressed that say, 'Oh, you made me want to go do what I want to do for myself and chase my dreams.' That's my purpose.
I never wanted to be a cheerleader; I wanted to play football.
My mom used to always play hip-hop around the crib, but moreso than that, she played reggae, and I grew up on reggae music more than I grew up on hip-hop.
I always liked Drake.
I never wanted to wear skirts or shoes, makeup, nails, dresses, or even wear my hair a certain way. I always wanted to wear sneakers, stud earrings, hair in a ponytail, and play with the boys.
I did retail. I worked at TJ Maxx before. I did fast food at Shake Shack.
If I'm not driving a Ferrari or a Lambo, I'm not gonna talk about it in my raps.
The good thing about having a hit record is you don't need too many people. Because now your record is on fire, and I already have a great team around me, so why run to the labels?
I wouldn't say I had a hard childhood because my mom always made sure we was Gucci, you know what I mean. Growing up, she made sure we ain't have to want for nothing. She did what she had to do; she made her money, and we was always good.
My brother and I always had conversations about me being a rapper. I always used to tell him, 'I'm gonna be the hottest rapper.'
I paid attention to the music industry and watching a lot of stuff on TV, behind-the-scenes stuff on old DVDs, and paying attention to interviews from artists and rappers and just really watching a lot of stuff as a kid.
I used to listen to Jay Z a lot.
We are all people... don't label me as an LGBT rapper or a female rapper... I don't like to be labeled.
I don't like to get comfortable. I don't like to be like, 'Oh, my song is all over the place. I'm lit.' Nah, it makes me wanna keep working.
To me, beauty is natural beauty. If you're naturally yourself, you're beautiful.
