To all my fans. I was suppose to be on the A-Trak tour but because of personal reasons i was pulled in the direction of not doing it. Things happen for a reason some happen at the wrong point of ya life but no one knows why or for what reason only God. So yes I was blessed with a child. At first i was teary eyed and my first thought was to get rid of it. I asked God for guidance and i went to the hospital 4 times and each time i had a breakdown and i knew what direction God was pulling me in. WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU, NOBODY CAN TAKE!!! AND HE DOESN’T GIVE YOU MORE THAN WHAT YOU CAN HANDLE. i feel as tho i had a baby and i had to much integrity to abort her my mom was on the table about to have me aborted and seen my heartbeat and changed her mind. I’m young but I’m also grown and right now its alot on me. BUT THESE THINGS DIDNT STOP ME ONLY MOTIVATED ME TO WORK 10TIMES HARDER!!!!! And i have alot of respect for the label for understanding and backing me and willing to work around this so we can release an amazing album.
She’s really young to be having a baby, but I had my first at 19, and everything turned out OK. Sure, it was hard, but if she has a good support system, she’ll be fine.
Rye Rye, who signed with M.I.A.’s label N.E.E.T., was due to release her debut album in March of this year, however, it’s been postponed for the time being.
