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.
I have no affinity for cows. I mean, they're cool.
I'm a bit of a tomboy, but then a girly girl. And I feel like you can be both.
I really pull from everyone. I'm absorbent.
When I was 12 I was obsessed with green and had my mom get me a bunch of green bedding for my room.
You stand up for what you believe in.
I have a song called 'Waffles Are Better Than Pancakes.' If I can't be goofy, I'll go insane.
I believe there are talented female rappers out there that aren't one-dimensional. It's OK to be one-dimensional, by the way.
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 don't want to name my fandom, I want them to name themselves. If I'm cool with it, I'm cool with it.
People can smell when things aren't genuine.
I feel like there's a lot of pressure on artists to be 100-percent organic all the time.
I've never worked behind a cash register before.
I appreciate people who make hip-hop... the way A Tribe Called Quest and Lauryn Hill and KRS-One did it.
I don't spend my time on farms. I don't like the smell, to be honest.
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.
I love R&B 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.
We need people who are open to doing something with theme, something with a cartoonish twist.
Truth is, I love everyone that is a good person regardless of what they look like, walk like, or who they love.
Be whatever you want to be.
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 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 just started singing 'cause I had dropped out of school.
I do have a lot of music out.
The Internet is such... it's so not real. But it's big and it feels big when you're on it.
I love that twinkly, girl rap. I've always loved that.
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 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.
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 believe in female rap.
I just really enjoy doing it and I've always loved making music.
My mom loves music and it poured into my childhood.
We should all learn from our experiences, but I don't think hatred is the best way to deal with ignorance.
I guess passion keeps me going.
That's a small portion of my career, taking a moment to do something stupid.
A lot of people liked 'Amala,' and that's great. However, I don't think it was a finished album.
With my first album it was a little bit like I was practicing.
At this point, I just do whatever... I want, to my detriment.
Before 'MOOO!' there were times when I was definitely at a low. I wasn't getting that much support from people around me.
I mean its cool that people appreciate fun stuff.
My father is a South African actor who danced in broadway musicals for 'Lion King.'
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 can sample Blink-182 but put an African vocal sample in there.
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.
I love Cardi B.
My mom was a painter and loves to sing behind closed doors.
