She noted that growing up in the Bronx did have its effects because she was a very slim person, and many would body shame her. She also talked about facing criticism over the texture of her hair.

The Grammy-winning rap artist relayed that when she clocked 18 and had enough money from stripping, she had breast implants, and two years later, she enhanced her butt.
