Fancy Southside Cheddar Girl”... .. .. .. ...
I was born September 14th, 1988 to my mother and best friend. From the age of 6 to 12 my mother had a boyfriend that mentally abused her. Though he never put his hand on her, the way he treated her was damaging to our household. The mean words were just as worse as punches and kicks. When he put down the bottle he was cool and nice. To a young child it was confusing for me. .. .. At age 12 I played football for the Powerhorn Recreation Park. I was a tough running back, their “secret weapon”. My life was changing for the better. I was a happy, go lucky pretty tomboy. I loved it because we traveled to different places to play. It took me out of the hood, it gave me time to dream. I was deeply involved in church, which had me traveling all over Minnesota doing bible quizzes. I was very good and always won first place, most of the time being the only Black person in the contest. .. .. Then at the age of 14 we moved to South Minneapolis, Franklin, and Chicago--a major drug path in the city, something my mother was unaware of at the time. This was the first time I had ever seen crack or dope fiends in my life. I remember walking to the bus stop and the fiends kept asking me if I was straight. I didn’t know what they were talking about, but not long after I realized they were looking for some dope. .. .. A few months passed and I was walking home and saw this guy that I used to see all the time. He walked up to me and, grabbed me, choked me, pulled me into an alley and raped me. Since that day my life has never been the same. The incident hardened me. I didn’t care about nothing or nobody. I wanted to hurt somebody, especially men.
That’s when I got introduced to weed. I smoked it to numb my pain and not too long after I started hustling to get money. .. .. I liked the power hustling gave me and the money that I could bring home. Right around that time there was a producer in the hood named Fleetwood. He stayed around the corner. I used to rap over peoples songs and people would tell me I was good. So I started writing songs. One day I ran into Fleetwood and rapped for him. Two days later we made a smash record, “Set Um Up”. He was like my big other brotha, he was from California. One day he was like “Let’s go to California,” so we did. .. .. When we got to California he left me in the Fillmore with his little sista. I went outside and this dude was on my line--it was JT the Bigga Figga. I told him who I was and why I was there. I called Fleetwood that night and we was in the studio that fast with Jt tha Bigga Figga,that same night I met Messy Marv, San Quinn, Big Rich and the rest of the Get Low Family. They were young and really hadn’t seen a female that was cut from a cloth like me. .. .. I went back to Minnesota and Fleetwood left, but I never stopped writing. We stayed in touch. One year later I met my oldest daughter’s Dad. I was 17th years-old and I got pregnant. When I reached my 5th month I was 17 and unaware that my boyfriend was using drugs. He OD’d on heroin.
That same year the Feds raided my house looking for my brotha and guns and dope. They didn’t find any but still gave him 20 years in prison for conspiracy. Instead of me chilling it only made me wanna get more money and hold the family down. At 21 I had my 2nd daughter. Her father had no job and was from the hood. I got on welfare and went back to school. Not even a month with me in school my mom lost her job. My brother was in jail, mom had no job, so I had to get on the grind again. I began to lose focus fast, the money had me. Then one day I got set up and went to jail. .. .. Through it all, I’m still here. I got my own hair salon, my babies are happy, I had another daughter.
