Mooo!' was one of those songs where I was like thank God people like it because I like it, too. When I made it I was having fun so I can only pull positive emotions from that memory.
I tried writing a song and it wasn't very good. I sung it to my mom and she told me it was bad -- but I was eight, so it's okay.
We should all learn from our experiences, but I don't think hatred is the best way to deal with ignorance.
It's funny, when you have a theme so particular to cows -- or it could be anything like hair or nails -- when you're rapping about a specific thing, you can have more punchlines about it.
If your only intent is to be seen, you'll never be seen. If your intent is to be happy, comfortable, genuine, and true in craft, you're destined to be noticed.
We moved from the suburbs to L.A. and I picked up break dancing when I was 10. I joined a dance crew in high school and I was battling. I also took ballet most of my life until high school.
I don't want to name my fandom, I want them to name themselves. If I'm cool with it, I'm cool with it.
I am whatever you want me to be and I can't control that. My experience is my experience, but I can't really claim anything. I know when I take my wig off at night and I have to twist my hair up, I'm black. But I don't get too personal most of the time.
I always knew I wanted to entertain people my whole life, I just didn't know exactly how I was going to do it until I was 16 and everything blossomed on SoundCloud.
I just like to do the fun stuff. If I'm not having fun with it, I'm not going to do it for the rest of my life.
I think I wanted to sing, but I just couldn't because I was so shy. I didn't really know how to begin that other than like, singing in my room, locking the door, and trying to sing kind of quietly. I knew my mom would want to listen and she would probably bug me about it.
I love RandB and hard-hitting, slappy, intense music with deep chords and moody chords. But I also have a thing for bubbly lullaby music. Kind of like ice-cream truck rap.
I'm not saying I'm even half as talented or a quarter as talented as any of the people I'm inspired by, but if I hear a beat Busta Rhymes would absolutely kill, I'll use my voice to do a flow similar to his.
When I was a kid, I used to wake up every single day and skateboard. All I would think about is skating, but it wasn't like I wanted to be a pro skater. It was more of just that's what I did. I also roller bladed a lot.
I appreciate people who make hip-hop... the way A Tribe Called Quest and Lauryn Hill and KRS-One did it.
I don't check Twitter as much or tweet as often because, honestly, sometimes social media is draining and brings out all of the negative things going on.
Truth is, I love everyone that is a good person regardless of what they look like, walk like, or who they love.
