its getting old...

so, i have recently been seeing peoples opinions saying that i'm "jocking" my style or whatever. get out of here with that ish man. for real. i'm tryna do me. ya kno? i think its because people hear songs like "twilight zone" and think that all my songs sound like that. are you listening to any of my other tracks? is it just cause twilight zone is my biggest song as far as peoples response? none of my other ish sounds like that! twilight zone is more of my breakthru track. i love hip hop, but i'm real to myself. i know that doing tracks like "but i can see" all day wont get me far. especially not in houston. not only that, but my personality has me liking all sorts of different music. i like to do whatever on a track. i let it come naturally. i dont and WONT force it. so if you thinking i'm trying to sound like kanye or whatever, get the fuck outta here. real talk. i look up to kanye and his music just like i look up to lupe, biggie, jay, common, busta, lauren hill among many others. niggas must want me to get on some fake ass gangsta tip like most of the rappers i know now. it wont happen. that aint me! that would be fake! this right here, the music i make. this is me. take it or leave it. my imagery is probably half of my trouble. people see the purple, black, and blue and will be like "oh! she trying to be like so and so" nah nigga. i'm tryin to be me. the color white hurts my eyes. lol. no joke. the first real song i recorded in A LONG time, in almost a year, was "twilight zone". that song changed my whole approach to rapping. i knew i could make something catchy and still be lyrical. the song inspired my myspace page, the flyer, all that ish! and if youre thinkin the colors are here to emulate kanye or lupe, ur dumb. i'm a girl. i like colors! in fact, purple and black are my fav colors, and it used to be blue. so i'ma keep using those damn colors! you should see my bed spread! ha! nah, but for real, keep all that jockin talk out of here. if i was just putting songs up and not being a little flashy, people would say i sound like jean grae. it doesnt matter what i do. someone is going to compare me to somebody. but thats cool. i had to fight for people to listen to me, i had to fight to get respect, i'll just fight to make a name for myself...
