“I’ve heard songs where I think she sounds dope, and I’ve heard others that I don’t like at all, but I actually have the utmost respect for her for chasing her dream and making it a reality. Regardless of whether you like her or don’t, she’s talented,” stated 360.
He continued, “Her belief and hard work has got her to where she is today. If you dislike a song and think it’s garbage and trash that’s fine, but millions of people disagree with you.”
