“Good things come to those who wait. But better things come to those who work for it.”

I’ve cleaned out my closet
four times this year.
I’m always sick
of the women I’ve been.
I no longer
fantasize over
making beds on the train tracks.
I am staying above water,
I am fighting.

I am a mountain
of a girl.

“The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one.”

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up. -Babe Ruth”

“You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.”

“When you do something out of love, you don’t count the cost.”

“I think it’s one of those places where, because we didn’t grow up in New York, because we didn’t grow up on the West Coast, we had time to soak both of those things in. Because no one expected anything from the South, except, you know, maybe fast, booty-shake club music. The door was wide open, so we had an open palette. And one thing I can say about Atlanta is you can do anything from Atlanta. Like, I think it would’ve been harder for us to come out from New York because they would’ve expected us to do a certain thing. We would have to rap a certain way, you know. So I think Atlanta is almost like a freedom land because we had no ties to anything. It was just open, like, open field.”
