- When asked what kind of challenges a woman faces in the hip-hop industry, she replied,
The kind of company I keep, they treat me as another person. I haven’t faced any discrimination, because I’m not really that outgoing. My circle is quite small, and all men: my bandmate, Khasi Bledz, is all male. I was surrounded by boys even in my childhood. I have two brothers, and on my father’s side are his nephews. There are women on my mother’s side, but they are all bigger than me, much bigger. I spent my childhood climbing trees, doing sports, playing outside, running, jumping.”

I have no idea, but I just want to be consistent with my work. You don’t know what’s going to happen. Of course I have plans, but at the same time I’m ready for anything that falls through. I have a management team that tells me, ‘Well, it’s not you, you shouldn’t be, go back to where you were.’ Obviously, I’m not trying to stay in my comfort zone forever. I want to experience and transcend boundaries, but I need to know where I stand as a person, as a sister, as a woman.”
- In an interview, he shared his songwriting process, and said,
I write music that’s very personal, so I feel like I’m putting myself out there for people. I also try to appeal to what people are feeling, or to give them company. So if there’s one person feeling the same way as me, that’s good enough for me. I write a lot about love. I am at that age where I am going through experiences with relationships. The idea of love that I have in my songwriting is very common. It can mean brother-sister love, it can mean parental love, lover, ex-lover, husband, wife. And there are some songs that are directed at my past experiences, which I hope some people can relate to. ,
