"Being young, you have to be really dedicated to doing it for yourself."

"It's just different things that we see in the 'hood that we never see in Hollywood. I liked the contents of the song, because I felt like no girls talked about it."

"Adding hope and faith and holding on to a dream can carry anyone far."
