I got the bittersweet opportunity to write King Von’s cover story for Bleu Magazine. It was his last shoot and he passed before the interview portion, so I wrote this piece in memoriam. This is my very first cover and I’m honored it was such a raw, real ass person like Von. Thank you to Chopsquad DJ for talking with me. Long live King Von!

This was SO amazing! Entertainment Tonight randomly shot me an email and asked if I wanted to join their conversation about music festivals in just two hours. Of course I said yes, and then I had to scramble to get my workout in and camera-ready in less than 120 minutes. Naturally I rose to the occasion (duh!), and the result was this. So cool! I don’t know how to search on ET’s website but if you want to try for yourself, check here. Otherwise, deal with the really cute screenshot above that Sasha captured, and the bootleg video of a video that I used for Instagram below.
I was super honored when Billboard reached out to me to talk about the lack of media coverage of women in hip-hop, and even more so when I saw the list of names I was featured amongst – Megan Ryte and DJ Miss Milan!
