Young M.A On being mainstream rap's first openly gay artist:
If I change people’s lives, that’s all that matters to me. I don’t want to be the first ‘dyke rapper,’ ‘aggressive rapper.’ I don’t care for that … I hear from all different people, not just people like me, or lesbians. It be straight people, it be grown men, it be grown women, people that have been sick or depressed that say, ‘Oh, you made me want to go do what I want to do for myself and chase my dreams.’ That’s my purpose
Young M.A on her misogynist lyrics:
At the end of the day, men can be described the same way as men describe women. A man can be a ho, just as much as a woman can be a ho. And I’m a woman myself! I respect women. I respect my mother
Young M.A on her next project:
I know people are looking forward to an album from me, but I don’t think it needs to be rushed either. Nowadays albums don’t come out as frequent as they used to, so I’m not too sure if I’ma drop an album as soon as people would think. I’m just trying to go off a vibe: how they feeling this, how they feeling that?
