1You're just so excited that you have this record deal or this movie opportunity that you don't stand up for yourself and say, This is what I want to do.
2We are getting an education of a lifetime. We're actually out there in the real world.
3When you're younger, you get shoved a lot. You don't really have a say-so.
4The Hadley Street Dream is a tribute to making a vision come to life. My father built a compound on a dessert city block, he saw something in that space we couldn't see. It was years later the album was born right there on Hadley St. He built the studio I started recording the album at.
5I actually love my natural hair when it's in a twist out and it's been slept on for five days and revived by the steam of the shower.
6It is always an honor to work with those that share your passion for music and just enjoy making great music.
7I have been writing songs since I was 9 years old, so writing has and always will be my first love and passion.
8Traveling is definitely something that your average 17-year-old doesn't get to do. One week we're in Japan, one week we're in Australia, one week we're back home going to football games.
9Any decision I make is based on myself, and the only person I have to give an explanation to is God.
10I felt like when I took my weave out, I wasn't pretty, I wasn't noticeable.
11You get educated by traveling.
