Exclusive Interview: Honey Cocaine Talks Linking Up With Tyga, "90's Gold" & More

The Queen of Tyga's Last Kings label talks to HotNewHipHop about Tyga reaching out to her, her new project, the Toronto rap scene and more.

After catching up with Tyga during his Careless World Tour, HNHH also took a moment to sit down with his Last Kings signee, Honey Cocaine.

The young rapstress came on stage during Tyga's set and kept the energy high on stage, while performing her singles with T-Raw, including "Heisman." 

We asked her about initially linking up with the YMCMB rapper, her new tape 90's Gold, getting shot in Omaha, the talent coming out of Toronto and more.


The Toronto native says Tyga reached out to her after seeing one of her YouTube videos,

"He reached out to me through YouTube, 'cause I used to do little videos of me spitting and shit. And, I dunno, I did a remix of "Rack City" and he seen it I guess, and he reached out to me through Twitter. And yeah, I was kinda surprised, but I felt it coming. I kinda felt, like, a break coming for me. 'Cause I'd been working really hard, in the studio all day, skipping school."

Honey Cocaine reveals she started writing down poetry at a very young age, and says she chose the "rap lane" around 7 or 8. By 10 or 11 she says she was already recording.

Of her new mixtape, 90's Gold, she says she was inspired by hearing old songs in the club in Europe.

"What inspired me to do that was just, when I was in Europe, I would hear old songs in the club. And I was just like, yo, this is music I grew up with and listen too and everyone's gunna love it, 'cause it's familiar to everyone."
