Get to know the Houston native a little better after the jump…

On Being A Quiet Child:

“Honestly, I’m not going to lie. I was a good kid. I was observing more than I was talking. I really didn’t start being vocal until maybe the fifth grade. I would spend a lot of time with my mom and my grandma. Kids used to pick on me because I was quiet, I was an easy target. But I wasn’t quiet because I was scared. I was quiet because I didn’t want to f*cking talk to them. One day I went home and I told my mom, ‘I think they’re picking on me.’ I wanted to get my mom’s permission to go back to school and go the f*ck off on everybody. She gave me the green light and I went to school and I cussed that little bitch out. Ever since then, I was just talking my sh*t.”


On How She Started Rapping:

“I didn’t tell anybody that I wanted to rap when I was in high school. But when I got to college I was like, nobody knows me. I’m going to just tell them I’m a rapper and they’re just going to have to go with that. So my best friend, who’s now my assistant, we would just be on YouTube together all the time, going through beats. That’s how I made my first mixtape, Rich Ratchet. Then I started going to the studio and working with DJ Chose, he still sends me beats. I don’t have a project out there that doesn’t have a DJ Chose beat on it. I’m not the type of person that just needs you for a season. If I want you in my life, you’re going to stay in my life.”

On Beyonce Collaboration:

“Everybody knows that I love, love, love, love Beyoncé. Both of us are from Houston. I really feel like that’s something I want to do. I always looked at Beyoncé as the example. Oh my God, I don’t even know what I would do if I meet Beyoncé.”

On Her New Management:

“I just signed to Roc Nation. I’ve met Jay-Z now, he’s really cool. I’m getting managed by them and it’s just awesome. It feels like family.”


Her Message For Young People:

“Don’t ever think that there’s not somebody out there that you can relate to. It doesn’t matter if it’s your blood or a friend or just a complete stranger. There will always be somebody out there that has been through the same thing that you’ve been through – you’ve really just got to stay strong and you got to find that person. Somebody is always willing to help you, so if you ever feel like you’re by yourself, you got to tough it out for a little while. You got to be yourself. But you always going to run into somebody that’s going to give you that love that you’ve been looking for.”

    Beyoncé don’t do it, this girl is trash. She will be dropped from roc nation within a year

    • ApeShit November 19, 2019

  2. Clarksoon November 19, 2019

    She brings nothing to the table

    • HER November 19, 2019

      She’s doing better then you every will, how sad is that?

    • You Tried November 19, 2019

      And you’re still just a loser in the comment section upset that somebody is living their dreams and you aren’t

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 19, 2019

      Making money is NOT a flop. She is getting 25K appearance fees now! Yeah she got that contact info for her booking agent so people can book her. She is a NEW artist not some seasoned artist who been in the game a few years! All NEW artists have their booking agent’s details on their instas! She just signed with Roc Nation last month not years ago moron! I bet if she was white u would be singing her praises uncle tom.

  3. Hmmm… November 19, 2019

    I want to like her music so bad, but I don’t. She can rap though. If it does happen, she needs to feature on Beyoncé’s song, not the other way around, because her personal style is just… eh.

  4. only facts November 19, 2019

    Zero crossover appeal, no versatility with the lyrics, and she cannot pull off high-end fashion brands (see Coach ad from last week). Everything about her is summer 2019 (aka DATED). Always looks cheap as hell in photos. Just a mess. Her career won’t survive through 2020.

    • Dr November 19, 2019

      She’ll be like Fantasia all the black people love her but she’ll go nowhere

      • only facts November 19, 2019

        B*tch, Fantasia Barrino has a #1 hit, SEVERAL certified albums, and a Grammy. Fantasia is RESPECTED in this industry. Do not shade Fantasia. She’s made her mark. And Megan doesn’t even make the same damn music as her, so in the words of the legendary Mariah Carey, “Get the f*ck out”

    • Dr November 19, 2019

      What Fantasia doing now flopping like a fish ain’t had hit since American idol hype next

      • Only facts November 19, 2019

        You idiot. Fantasia didn’t even win her first Grammy until YEARS after American Idol. What are you doing now is the question? Not having success.

    • Dr November 19, 2019

      Still a flop

      • You Tried November 19, 2019

        A flop that has millions still living her dreams whilst you hate in a comment section that she’ll never see lmao
