“They’re not going to have a homeless person on a poster representing New York.”
- My mom passed away when I was 4 years old, and she came from a very conservative Korean background. I feel like my life would’ve been incredibly different had she still been alive.
- Other female rappers are overly sexual, have no wit, and their lyrics are so generic. I want to change the game to make rap that shows I’m not a normal female rapper – it’s not about how rich I am, how much sex I have, or how many boyfriends I have. That’s just not me.
- Rap was started by black people and, thus, is at the foundation of black culture. So people cannot always wrap their minds around someone like me being inspired by it. But if you listen to the things we’re saying, they’re authentically us.
- They’re not going to have a homeless person on a poster representing New York.
- When I was 15, I talked to Liam Neeson because I was the only one of my friends ballsy enough to engage him.
- When I went to college, it became more of a hobby, and that’s when I think I got the realest music education. It wasn’t something that I had to do. It wasn’t an obligation.
- You can’t really label me as a musician, a comedian, or a rapper – you know, it’s different.
