(Lyrics that are more social than rap) I thought hip-hop was going to be my art form. I didn’t even buy myself a turntable before I moved away from home. But when I moved to New York I realized I had to relearn everything. It took about eight months for me to realize that even hip hop is pretty much just the most boring of forms of music. (Lyrics that are more uplifting, more of a social dance or a dance.) I wanted to use this to my advantage. My friends were getting into hip hop and it started to become a part of my life.

Even if it’s the same tweet, it still means something and is something interesting to me—even if I’m about to delete whatever I just wrote. That was important to me, especially because I’ve been doing my own thing for so long. When I started it was just a way to interact, and now I get really involved with people. There’s a community of fans in which I always look back on, and sometimes they don’t know who I am, but they give me a chance to just tweet in a way that I’m already known for. If I start
