A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk (@theneighborhoodtalk) Heres my problem with her saying this, I wish she revealed the name. Its like when Latto said thisAnd then everybody thought it was Kodak.

We did two records together. He was like, Okay, Im not gonna charge you, you know you my homie. But when she was assembling her album content, he then switched up and asked her to shower with him. I thought he was joking, she then shared. And then he was like, Nah, Im dead serious. Lets go out, or lets take a shower together, and Ill give you the records. If not, I need 40 racks per record.
