Do you associate yourself with other Texas artists? If so, who?
Hmmm… I don't really associate with ppl in general, lol but what's up Texas artists.

To stay on my shit.
Your numbers are growing and you just recently dropped a new project titled “Snowflake”. What was the response like with that project?
People really fucking with it and I love that. I feel like it really speaks to the people that respond to tough love, that's me. We ain't got time to be sad baby, shape up.
What was the creative process behind the project? Any purpose or meaning behind it?
I really was in a good space during quarantine and I went to my hometown and wrote a lot. Then boom I had a project.
What are your favorite records from the project?
Hilary Banks for sure, they change every day though. Depend on what song playing at the time.
“Snowflake” has over 11 strong records, how long did it take for you to create this project? Can we expect more from Snowy soon?
Not long, working on not tryna be a perfectionist so much so I can put more out quicker. I will just be holding on to stuff wanting it to be perfect for y'all.
“Parlay” is another record that caught our attention from your project. Can you tell us about the record, the creative process and how you were feeling on this record?
Random, I don't know where that vibe came from, to be honest. I was sitting in the living room with my mom & sis (they was watching housewives & I was In the corner with my headphones on) I wrote that song so quick, I think just Bc I was surrounded by good vibes. That's key, get u some good vibes baby.
Do you write your music or tend to freestyle it?
Write for sure, I been working on my freestyling though so stay tuned. I'm just so weird, I won't be trusting myself to just blurt shit out. Y'all not readdddddyyy.

SNOWFLAKE shit. no 2 snowflakes the same baby.

Great, bc a southern belle always on her toes (Laughs).
