If you could be any character in a movie who would you be?
Aww, damn. That’s deep right there. Ummm I mean, I’d probably most likely just be myself.
How does it feel to have made the transition from local to global success?
It’s a big transformation — it happened so, so, so quick. Like, it was slowly happening at first, and then one day it just snapped. I’m still trying to get used to it. I mean, I still feel normal though… I tell my peoples that all the time. People come up to me all the time wanting to take a picture and I’m like “Why y’all wanna a picture with me?” But I mean, that’s just apart of the whole situation that I’m in. I’m just preparing for it slowly, but surely. I’m still humble though man. I’m grateful for it.
What advice do you have for young women thinking this is a male dominated industry?
Don’t feel intimidated by that beecause nine times out of ten, a lot of women out here are actually doing better than men. Don’t think about it like that, just do what you do. As a woman, as a man, as a whatever you wanna call yourself — do what you do. We’re all human. We are all people. Just get that money and do the work.
How do you feel about NYC making a comeback and you representing NY?
Oh I feel good because I definitely was apart of that — a big, big part of that. That was always my intention to bring the city back, especially to the position that it’s supposed to be in. So I feel good about that. We still have a lot of work to do though. I’m not done. I got a lot of shoes to fill. I’m in my own lane, so I have a lot of people that’s watching me. I’m prepared.
We gonna keep it going.
