Since then she has worked hard releasing music and has shared the stage with the likes of 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Rakim, Atmostphere, A-Trak, Gym Class Heroes and also fellow Chicagoans Flosstradamus and Probcause who is the probably the reason I myself jam to this rapper chicks music.

It is also her most collaborative effort as well, there are a lot of artists on this album; Drew Mantia, The Omy’s, My Gold Mask, Kyle Miller, Wes. P and the Rapperchicks who were there with here from the start of the album she told Complex.
