When asked about her relationship with Fat Joe here’s what she had to say:
Well, I and Joe are really, really close. It’s funny because he’s been blowing my phone up about this mixtape. I’ve known Joe for like three and a half years now. He’s always known I can sing. He’s always known I could write. But for some reason with this mixtape he’s just a believer. It’s a very humbling experience. It’s funny because when we did the song “I’m So Ready” on “Groundzero” he texted me about how much he loved the record. I had to text him back and say sometimes I think I forget who I’m dealing with because I’m so close to you. But I’m really dealing with a legend. When you’re around somebody all the time sometimes you forget that. He really makes me forget it because he’s so humble and down to earth. I’m so thankful for him.
