1. What was the biggest challenge with your debut project?
My biggest challenge with my debut project has been timing! I’m big on my project being perfect so the world can feel me and I’m eager to get my music out, but I had to learn patience to achieve perfection.
2. What did you want the project to convey to your fans?
I wanted this project to show that as a female rapper / performer you don’t have to be boxed into any category! My music conveys strength, sexiness, bossiness, and confidence! I focused on storytelling and metaphors as well as creating fun and sexy music you can vibe to.
