My advice would be to stay persistent and be prepared to work hard!You can’t get anywhere in life without working hard!So working with them came easy because you guys were friends? Snoop was one of the harder features to get because he’s so busy but I knew I had to make that happen because my name is Chanel “West Coast” and I feel as though I couldn’t be Chanel “West Coast” without having a song with Snoop Dogg. What can fans expect from ‘Chanel West Coast’ 5 years down the line… As an artist, in the next five years, I definitely wanna have several albums out.I want to be able to put a ton of music out for my fans and not keep them waiting.Just because Safaree and Nikki are just friends that put their drama behind them, doesn’t mean they still don’t flirt with each other every chance they get.While waiting for Chanel to arrive, Nikki warns that Chanel’s booty isn’t like hers, but Chanel still might be able to do it like Nikki.Because I’ve worked with a lot of producers and everybody would tell me “You have a dope voice and your talented” , but it was Rich who kept it real with me, and told me to step my game up a little more lyrically.So I took his advice, and I got in the zone and began writing every single day until I got better lyrically.
So pretty much I always knew that I wanted to make a career out of music or something along those lines. The producer who just did my mixtape, Rich Skillz, it was meeting him, which helped me get to the next level of my career- musically.The title is dedicated not only the haters, but to the people that doubted me because a lot of people assume because I’m a happy and funny girl on TV, that there is no way that I could be a rapper or there’s no way I’m “about that life”.I call it “Now You Know” because once you hear it- it’s like you You can tell through my music that I can rap, and just lyrically what I’m saying, you could tell the type of life I lived and who I really am… Who are some of the major features on your mixtape?I don’t come from money or anything, it wasn’t like I had my dad making phone calls hooking me up with studios or anything.I basically had to work my butt off since I was 14 years old.
