00:05
He always kills me.
00:06
I saw that they know.
00:09
Hey guys, welcome back to Lincoln Bio.
00:12
I'm Jenny. I'm Jean and we've got it and I'm Daniela
00:16
How long you been down there for?
00:18
Don't worry about it.
00:19
We've done this like eight times.
00:22
Well, we got a great show for you guys today.
00:26
Let's get into it.
00:27
Facebook and Netflix slide into your D MS.
00:30
Ain't nothing good in my D.
00:32
MS. Shakira drags Barbie and California.
00:36
Fast food workers finally touched $20.
00:39
Rauri runners be running and the latest attack on abortion rights in
00:45
Florida. We also got a full eclipse this week.
00:50
Don't look straight at it and Jamie talks about the inspiration behind
00:55
her latest album. Let's get into it.
00:57
Let's go. Meta A K A Facebook is in Hot Water
01:06
over its data practices alleging they had a special agreement with Netflix
01:10
to share user data.
01:12
A recent antitrust lawsuit claims that Meta allowed Netflix to access Facebook
01:17
users direct messages for years.
01:20
So they've been down in RD MS.
01:22
The plaintiffs say Meta and Netflix enjoyed a special relationship and that
01:26
Netflix used the data for their Facebook ads.
01:29
They say that Facebook then made millions of dollars in Netflix's ad
01:34
revenue. That's crazy,
01:35
man. So Netflix and Facebook were basically sleeping together a little
01:40
bit. They were,
01:41
they were having special relations and making money off of our D
01:45
MS. Imagine that my sad ass DM they're making bank.
01:49
Have you, have you got a check?
01:51
No. Cut you a check.
01:53
They ain't cut shit.
01:54
A meta rep denied the claims calling the complaint meritless.
01:59
Imagine your, you should watch list being based off of your
02:03
D MS J. I wonder what yours would look like?
02:06
My DM I call,
02:08
I call it the graveyard honestly because ain't nothing going down in
02:11
there. Well, I started a special relationship with,
02:14
she's Mosa Central and I took a little sneak peek at your
02:17
D MS while you were in the bathroom.
02:18
And I have a couple I'd like to share with the
02:24
how y'all got this.
02:26
I was wondering why they were recommending all these shows to me
02:28
like Love is Blind.
02:30
The Circle ain't too hot to handle like I don't watch none
02:32
of that shit. I mean,
02:33
I think this is why Gene.
02:36
This is hell of embarrassing y'all.
02:38
I gotta start locking my phone around y'all like yo,
02:40
who did? This person doesn't even have the Ryan who gave
02:43
her my phone. They always one option to accept delete or
02:48
block. Not even reply.
02:49
Gene. Come on,
02:50
man, y'all can't let rih find this out that I'm doing
02:53
this shit. Y'all trying to get me banned.
02:54
That app is like $25 a month.
02:57
Y'all over here exposing my D MS.
02:59
How about your D MS?
03:00
Let's see your D MS.
03:01
All right. Time for our next story.
03:03
Oh So that's how we play.
03:05
We don't. The Barbie movie which came out last year is
03:10
still making headlines this time with Colombian pop star Shakira who was
03:14
the mother of two boys.
03:16
She gave her hot take on the popular movie in a recent
03:19
interview. Damn, she got dragged for this comment in an
03:22
interview. Shakira said my sons absolutely hated it.
03:26
They felt that it was emasculating and I agree to a certain
03:29
extent. Damn. She also added,
03:32
I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing
03:36
men of their possibility to be men to also protect and provide
03:41
I think that men have a purpose in society and women
03:44
have another purpose as well.
03:47
Why, why are you dragging Barbie?
03:48
Like what did Barbie do to you,
03:51
Shakira? Like she like,
03:53
OK, your boy you didn't need to go public with,
03:55
with the what your son said?
03:57
You could have just kept that in the group chat,
03:59
you know, like do you think mommy,
04:00
we don't like it like she might be jealous because you know
04:03
who was on the album?
04:04
Carl G was, that was a real t maybe.
04:08
But you know what I'm a little confused,
04:10
Shakira. Your album is kind of a woman empowerment.
04:14
I mean the title is Las Mujeres.
04:15
Jano Jan Women no longer cry.
04:18
Ok. But why are we crying about the Barbie movie being
04:20
emasculating? Tell me about that because for me,
04:23
it was surface level.
04:24
I felt like the Barbie movie could have gone a lot farther
04:27
you know, like it touched on a couple of issues
04:31
but I think she just missed the whole point of the
04:34
movie. So I guess Shakira versus Piquet just turned into Shakira
04:38
versus Barbie. Damn,
04:40
you wanna get really canceled?
04:41
Y'all wanna know the real hot tea that I got you giving
04:45
J Lo vibes. This is what happened.
04:48
She did, did her New York Times Square performance and everyone
04:52
said Shakira from the block.
04:53
Shakira from the block.
04:54
Now she acting like J Lo you acting J Lo ish right
04:57
now. This is hurting my heart.
04:59
Barbie movie O yo if,
05:02
if those are, if you know,
05:03
if I'm her son,
05:04
I'm like, I can't tell mom anything like I can't tell
05:07
you shit like yo,
05:09
that wasn't, you know that was for me and you mom
05:12
Now all the girls hate me at school.
05:14
Low key like yo,
05:15
your mom don't like Barbie like his Yeah,
05:18
he's sitting alone in the cafeteria table because of his mom,
05:21
Colombian mom. Of course,
05:23
man. All right,
05:24
Shakira, this breaks my heart.
05:26
But on to the next story,
05:32
we had so many people in our feeds telling us to cover
05:36
this next story. Well,
05:38
we got you covered.
05:39
Imagine running from L A to Las Vegas with chang class and
05:44
a skirt. Well,
05:46
six women from the Mexican indigenous ra rauri community did just that
05:51
They completed a 335 mile ultra marathon called the Speed Project
05:58
from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
06:00
Their finishing time was 52 hours.
06:05
Incredible. The race known for its secrecy began at the Santa
06:09
Monica pier and ended at the welcome to Las Vegas side with
06:13
each woman running approximately 55 miles over three days.
06:18
So the six women call themselves the ra ra ra and are
06:21
all mothers. Their names are Angela Argea,
06:27
Isidora, Lucy Vero and Julia.
06:31
The Tarahumara people also known as Ra Rauri are known for their
06:36
long distance running abilities,
06:38
running is a major part of their culture and is linked to
06:42
their spiritual pursuits, prayer and hunting traditions.
06:46
That's so cool. That is so cool.
06:48
I, I mean,
06:49
I saw somewhere, I don't know if this is a factor
06:51
but I saw somewhere that Nike even reached out to them
06:54
Really? And what did they have to say?
06:56
Well, like they said that something about,
06:58
oh, like, you know,
06:58
if they wanna sponsor them or something like along the lines of
07:02
that and how I think they said that,
07:06
only people behind them like use Nike or like the
07:10
sneakers or whatever that,
07:13
that's what I saw it somewhere.
07:15
But I don't know if that's like,
07:17
you know, true.
07:18
But if it was,
07:19
regardless, these are a powerful group of women runners and mothers
07:29
On Monday, most California fast food workers started making $20
07:33
an hour. Stemming from a state law that was passed in
07:35
September, the state's minimum wage for other types of work is
07:38
still $16. The wage increase affects California employees who work for
07:43
a fast food chain with more than 60 national locations.
07:47
There are more than 500,000 fast food workers in the state.
07:50
It exempts fast food restaurants in airports,
07:53
hotels, theme parks,
07:55
museums and grocery stores.
07:58
Always a catch several chains including mcdonald's have said they will raise
08:03
their menu prices to counteract the wage increases.
08:06
So Gene, you were telling me yesterday about how you spent
08:09
$48 on fast food.
08:12
Tell me about that.
08:12
Yeah, I, I guess the pay increase that they're taking
08:15
it out on on us.
08:17
You know, the consumer prices.
08:19
I'm all good. You feel me like you could charge me
08:21
a little bit more if it means they're gonna make $20.
08:23
But come on don't make me use after pay to pay for
08:26
the two burgers. I got this is,
08:29
this is, this is a jab at five guys.
08:31
Yo, like I gotta take a second mortgage out on the
08:34
crib for a for a for a burger after pay on a
08:38
play. Five guys like,
08:39
yo, they, but in the cut,
08:41
like five ways. Is that why you're charging so much,
08:43
like, cut guys out if y'all charging that much,
08:46
like, lose a guy.
08:48
Look, I'm all for raising the minimum wage.
08:51
Trust me. But I think that should be a statewide thing
08:54
Looks like my stomach's grumbling but seems like it's time to
08:57
eat healthier and skip the fast food on to the next story
09:05
The Florida Supreme Court ruled on Monday that it will ban
09:08
abortions past six weeks taking effect on May 1st.
09:12
So the court upheld a 15 week ban which took effect in
09:16
2022 and removed the barrier for the six week ban that Governor
09:21
Rhonda Santa signed in April 2023.
09:25
Previously, the state's privacy clause guaranteed the right to receive an
09:29
abortion. The court ruled that Florida's residents will be allowed to
09:33
vote on abortion in the November ballot.
09:36
However, abortion past six weeks is banned in the state until
09:40
then, doctors will have to turn away patients until Florida citizens
09:44
vote later this year.
09:46
The ban will disproportionately affect women in marginalized communities even more.
09:52
Some say a six week ban is similar to a total ban
09:57
because many women do not know they're pregnant until after that.
10:01
There are now 16 states that have a near total ban on
10:04
abortion and Florida will join next month being the 17th state.
10:09
Now joining us are NBC reporter Nicola Acevedo as well as Lupe
10:13
Rodriguez from the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice to explain Florida's
10:18
new abortion policy. Hi,
10:21
ladies. Hi, thanks for having us.
10:24
Thank you. Thank you for being here.
10:27
Nicole, can you explain the latest Florida Supreme Court's abortion
10:31
ruling? And what does this mean for women in the state
10:35
Well, out of the Florida Supreme Court,
10:37
what we just saw happen was that the court,
10:40
there was looking into a series of cases,
10:43
a couple of cases that were brought to the court to challenge
10:48
some of the newer laws in the state trying to ban abortions
10:52
after 15 weeks and another one after six weeks and in,
10:57
in a couple of decisions,
10:58
what happened was they uphold the 15 week abortion ban and at
11:04
the same time, they saw the six week one.
11:10
So until May 1st,
11:12
there's a 15 week abortion ban in Florida.
11:14
After that, it's going to be a six week abortion ban
11:18
But there is a catch.
11:19
This court also decided that it would be up for the voters
11:23
whether that law will continue to remain in place moving forward
11:28
So in November in the election,
11:29
there's gonna be some language in the ballots.
11:32
When people go to vote to see if in the state of
11:35
Florida, they wanna protect the right for,
11:39
for an abortion. And if voters say yes,
11:42
then these bans that,
11:44
that are going to be in effect in the next several months
11:47
are going to be lifted.
11:49
So vote, vote vote,
11:51
vote. Lupe. Some experts say the six week ban on
11:55
abortion is nearly a total ban since many women don't know they're
11:59
pregnant until after that.
12:00
Can you speak on this?
12:02
The majority of women,
12:03
over two thirds of women don't know that they're pregnant by six
12:08
week weeks. Many find out very close to six weeks.
12:11
But,, you know,
12:13
it takes a while to be able to find a place to
12:15
get care. It takes a while to sort of make all
12:18
of the arrangements that have to happen in the state of Florida
12:21
People have to pay out of pocket to get this care
12:24
And so that means,
12:25
you know, having the money coming up with what you need
12:27
to be able to do it,
12:28
it really essentially means that people will not have access to this
12:31
care in the state of Florida.
12:33
And unfortunately, what that's what that looks like is that,
12:36
you know, the closest place where folks can get care is
12:39
in Charleston, North Carolina,
12:41
which only serves people until 12 weeks.
12:43
There's just a lot of barriers and issues that will make this
12:46
even more difficult, even more restrictive.
12:49
And again, for us really be a full ban for most
12:53
people and particularly for Latinas and for other women of color,
12:56
definitely it's like pressed against time we're going back.
13:00
Yeah. And also Nicole,
13:02
the court said there is no basis under the privacy clause to
13:07
invalidate the abortion bans.
13:09
how was this a privacy issue according to Florida law?
13:14
Well, before, when we talk about matters that are private
13:18
to a citizen, abortion used to be included in that.
13:21
And that had been sort of like the interpretation of the court
13:24
over and over over the years,
13:26
what this decision did saying was to reverse that,
13:29
essentially saying that abortion was not protected under that clause,
13:33
basically insinuating that it's not a private matter of,
13:37
of a person. So by,
13:39
by deciding that that's how they were able to,
13:42
to reverse that those laws that had been passed in 2022 and
13:48
and 2023 putting these,
13:50
these 15 week and six week banks in,
13:52
in place. Wow.
13:55
So Lupe, I,
13:56
I know we hinted at this and we've agreed that how is
14:01
Florida's new legislation going to disproportionately affect women of color in the
14:05
state? You know,
14:06
we know specifically for Latinas and Latina folks that in Florida alone
14:12
1.4 million Latinas are affected by the abortion bans.
14:16
And then you have neighboring states,
14:18
people in neighboring states who were going to Florida to get care
14:23
because, you know,
14:25
they have abortion bans in their states.
14:27
And so that proportion of people,
14:29
it adds up to quite a,
14:30
you know, millions of women and,
14:32
and millions of Latinas specifically,
14:34
we also know in a study we did recently that of the
14:37
Latinas who are affected by these bans,
14:39
who are the majority in this country.
14:42
two thirds of us are economically insecure as well.
14:46
And so that means further exacerbating poverty,
14:49
further exacerbating inequities that already exist in the community.
14:53
Lupe. Are there any exception to Florida's latest abortion ban?
14:57
Yes. The ban does have exceptions for rape,
15:01
incest and fetal diagnoses As well as to save the pregnant
15:05
person's life. You know,
15:07
unfortunately, for what we've,
15:08
what we've seen in Texas and other places where there are really
15:12
restrictive bans exceptions don't appear to be solutions or actually supportive of
15:17
people. You know,
15:18
as we saw in Texas,
15:19
there were many women who were suing the state because they were
15:23
not allowed to get abortion care for fetal diagnoses and for the
15:28
health of the mother.
15:29
So it's super hard for folks to get these exceptions.
15:31
It's really hard for them to go through with it.
15:34
And, and often we find that the States actually,
15:37
you know, keep people from getting the care they need.
15:39
Yeah. And, and actually to Lupe's point,
15:41
you know, if,
15:42
if you want, if somebody wants to use,
15:44
for example, the exception that they're involving assault or rape,
15:48
like a police report,
15:49
it's needed, you know,
15:50
to show evidence and most of these cases go under reported that
15:54
that's why it's such an issue.
15:56
And when it comes to determining,
15:57
you know, that the health of the mother is in danger
16:01
you know, how much is too much danger or how
16:04
much is danger enough,
16:05
you know, we've seen so many cases in other states where
16:10
women are put through horrible situations because the provider doesn't feel,
16:15
doesn't, doesn't know where to draw the line,
16:17
doesn't feel confident in being able to do that and not,
16:20
not have, you know,
16:22
law enforcement on, on their door.
16:24
Nicole. Speaking of that,
16:26
could women seek abortions past six weeks be prosecuted?
16:31
And how about doctors?
16:35
Yeah. And, and that's what,
16:36
what, what this law does,
16:38
you know? So,
16:38
so it, it's not legal,
16:40
you know, that,
16:40
that's, there's a cut off in,
16:42
in, in which these,
16:43
these services are not gonna be provided.
16:46
That's what the law does.
16:49
We've seen, you know,
16:50
over, over the course of many of these bans popping up
16:54
across different states is that they travel to the areas where it
16:58
is, you know,
16:59
the cutoffs are different,
17:00
maybe is 24 weeks or 15 weeks or,
17:03
you know, so that's why it,
17:05
it's just becoming so conditional for,
17:09
you know, women and,
17:10
and people in our country to get this,
17:12
this care. Last question,
17:13
Nicole, this is a presidential election year.
17:17
How is this expected to affect voter turnout?
17:20
Since we're on this topic?
17:22
It can be a lot easier,
17:24
especially for younger voters to rally behind issues and causes.
17:29
So this presents an opportunity that maybe somebody was on the fence
17:34
about voting because, you know,
17:37
they don't feel happy with the party system or they don't feel
17:40
happy about any of the candidates running.
17:42
Thank you both so much for being on the show and explaining
17:46
this difficult topic. And how can our audience find you
17:50
both online and you can find my organization at Latina Institute on
17:54
Instagram, Twitter, Facebook,
17:56
et cetera. You can find me on Twitter or Well X
17:59
but you know, for me,
18:00
it's Twitter at Nicole Marie underscore A and you can follow
18:05
our coverage at NBC,
18:06
Latino NBC News. Thank you both so,
18:09
so much for your time.
18:10
Thank you for covering the story.
18:12
Have a great day.
18:13
OK. Bye guys.
18:19
Yo, Jenny. I don't know if you know this,
18:21
but there's an eclipse coming this week and I think that's why
18:26
I haven't been able to do anything right this whole week.
18:29
That explains a lot.
18:31
Like at work, I got like five parking tickets.
18:35
If it just feels off,
18:37
I didn't know that,
18:38
you know, I didn't know the,
18:39
you know, the stars and the moons played a role in
18:41
my fucking everyday. Yeah,
18:44
but apparently it does.
18:46
And today we have Ashley A K A lipstick kitty to help
18:51
you know, help us,
18:52
you know, like what's going on?
18:56
Hi, Ashley. Hi,
18:58
Ashley. Hi, what's going on?
19:01
Can you explain really simply the difference between the sun sign,
19:07
the moon sign and the ascendant sign?
19:09
Like I girls have given me,
19:11
I've given them my birthday and they put it in the co
19:14
sign. So can you help you.
19:17
What is it? Co star?
19:19
Wow, my bad.
19:21
Well, next time a girl tries to get you on Co
19:23
Star be like, no,
19:25
we need to get on the pattern because Co Star Basra baby
19:28
But Co Star just doesn't tell you a lot of
19:32
things that other apps tell you like your North note your Kyron
19:35
other things that's for another day.
19:37
But so basically when someone asks you for your sign,
19:41
most people say their sun sign,
19:43
which is what most people know your rising sign is.
19:48
Basically, you know,
19:49
when someone asks like,
19:51
hey, what time were you born?
19:52
That's because they eat it for your rising sign because you could
19:55
pull someone's chart without someone's rising sign.
19:58
You just won't have that piece of the puzzle.
20:01
But then it's like the most important piece because when you're reading
20:04
someone's chart, you want your chart starts with your first house
20:10
being in your rising sign.
20:11
So if you don't have the rising sign,
20:13
you can't see how the planets interact with what houses in your
20:16
chart if that makes sense.
20:18
And then your moon sign is like your emotional state of mind
20:23
It's like your deepest emotion.
20:24
So I like to say that your moon sign is basically who
20:28
you are when you're by yourself or when you're super comfortable around
20:32
someone. That's why I think like having compatibility with someone with
20:36
your moon sign is more important than your sun sign.
20:39
So right now. I mean you heard us,
20:41
I mean shit is hitting the fan like it sure is,
20:45
does the lunar eclipse have anything to do with it or who
20:50
are most affected? Like,
20:51
should I stay inside?
20:53
Just let me know.
20:53
Honestly, you could stay inside.
20:55
I don't think it's going to help.
20:57
Either way you're going to be tired and you're going to just
20:59
be dealing with the energy of the eclipse.
21:00
So basically, a lot is going on.
21:04
So on Monday, March 25th,
21:08
we had the lunar eclipse in Libra.
21:12
OK. So basically,
21:14
you probably already feel the effects of the shadow period of
21:18
mercury retrograde, which means like you probably had some miscommunications,
21:23
you probably have had issues with like,
21:25
I don't know your internet or something.
21:28
But the reason why the energy is like super intense right
21:32
now is because usually like eclipse season doesn't like fall into mercury
21:38
retrograde. So we're having two really big like astrological events happen
21:43
at the same time.
21:44
Have you guys felt like a shift within your relationships of all
21:48
sorts by any chance?
21:52
I mean, I was like,
21:56
he's not, that's a Christian people are,
22:00
you know how it is.
22:01
And that's because Aries is literally the first sign of the zodiac
22:06
It's like Aries and Libra are both cardinal signs.
22:09
Cardinal signs are basically like the leaders of the zodiac because it's
22:12
these are the signs that are like in the beginning of
22:15
the season. So Aries is like a fire cardinal sign that
22:20
starts things and is just like very like,
22:24
you know, reactive and then Libra is all about harmony,
22:27
peace and relationships. So when you have both energies,
22:31
Aries is just having you like revisit all of your relationships and
22:36
seeing like does this align with my great or good.
22:39
So that's why you're dropping a lot of people right now.
22:41
But yeah, that's why the,
22:42
the energy right now is just super intense and the signs that
22:46
are really going to feel this and this could be sun moon
22:49
or rising is Libra Aries,
22:53
Cancer and Capricorn. So if you have any of those within
22:57
your big three, I am sending my love to you,
23:02
Ashley quickly. Can you guess what our signs are since we're
23:06
talking about the? OK,
23:07
I'm going to ask some questions.
23:10
Do you prefer to be at home by yourself or do
23:14
you like being around people?
23:15
Like if you had to choose one or the other around people
23:19
I like being around people.
23:20
Yeah, it depends on my mood.
23:22
I like being around people.
23:23
I enjoy somebody's company but I like being by myself.
23:27
Are you very intense?
23:29
Like when you are in it with someone,
23:32
like you prefer intense conversations versus like surface level things,
23:37
intense conversations surface deep if I have to but mainly surface if
23:42
you have to. Oh yeah,
23:43
you're not, you're not going to have these deep conversations with
23:47
just anyone else, the right person I prefer them.
23:50
Have you, do you feel like you have gone through a
23:52
lot of transformation, like throughout your life?
23:55
Like death and rebirth?
23:57
That kind of like maybe chapters,
23:59
you know, like,
24:00
yeah. Well, that,
24:01
that fall into, I feel like I have,
24:03
I mean that, and then would you consider yourself an emotional
24:08
person? Yes. Depending on the subject.
24:11
Yes. Ok. Definitely giving water sign energy from who I
24:19
kind of both of you.
24:20
You guys had similar answers?
24:22
Oh my God, Ashley.
24:25
OK. You're getting,
24:26
you're getting close. You're what I'm gonna go with Scorpio.
24:32
Actually, you're good.
24:33

24:39

24:41

They call her the queen of the 805.
25:40
She just released her latest album last week called Love Now Cry
25:44
later. Welcome to the show,
25:46
Jamie. We're so so excited and happy to have you here
25:53
today. Thank you.
25:54
I'm super excited to be here.
25:56
You guys are really awesome.
25:57
Oh, so tell us about working on your new album Love
26:01
Now, Cry later.
26:02
What were you most inspired by?
26:05
you know, I just wanted to go back to my
26:08
R and BC. I do a lot of old school funk
26:10
sometimes I do rap just for fun.
26:13
But I really wanted to get back into,
26:16
you know, those that kind of heartbreak,
26:19
you know, vibe,
26:20
feeling the love vibe,
26:21
feeling a lot of my girl fans.
26:23
They're like, I need something I can bump in the car
26:25
that's gonna make me scream my lungs out.
26:27
You know, like,
26:28
you know, if I'm mad at my man,
26:30
I wanna sing something.
26:31
If I love my man,
26:32
I wanna sing something about it,
26:33
you know, and even like a guy with a girl,
26:35
I just wanted something that people could vibe to and also,
26:38
you know, like,
26:39
relate to, I love that vibing and related.
26:43
So I guess that leads me to my next question.
26:45
How did you come up with the name of the album?
26:47
Love? Now Cry later.
26:49
There's a saying that goes,
26:51
smile now cry later.
26:53
And that's what kind of inspired me.
26:54
And I was like,
26:55
you know, I want to put my own twist like,
26:57
you know, love.
26:58
Now that's, you know,
26:59
usually at the beginning of the relationship starts,
27:01
you know, sometimes it falls through it,
27:03
cry later to worry about it later.
27:05
I'm so in love,
27:06
you know. So I was like,
27:07
I think that's gonna be a perfect name for it.
27:09
It's cute, you know,
27:10
it is like, I'll remember that.
27:14
So you posted last year about being independent with no label.
27:19
How was it like being a Latina in the music industry doing
27:23
it on your own?
27:25
It's honestly, it is a journey.
27:28
I would say,
27:29
you know, at first I thought I needed,
27:32
you know, to,
27:32
for people to do things for me,
27:34
but I learned that you work hard on your own,
27:37
you know, you,
27:38
you go through the trials of it all and it's,
27:40
it's worth it in the end as a woman.
27:43
And you know, it,
27:44
it has a lot of challenges and it's a male dominant scene
27:48
and I just didn't give up.
27:50
I said, heck no,
27:51
you know, I'm gonna keep going if you know this,
27:54
this label over here is telling me,
27:56
you know, you need me,
27:57
you need me but you know,
27:58
you don't really need like you need a team but that's what
28:02
you need a team.
28:03
People are gonna like put you up.
28:05
So I just said,
28:05
you know, I'm gonna be independent for a while.
28:08
I'm gonna see where it goes and it's been working.
28:11
You know, people respect that way more when you put in
28:13
like the dedication and I encourage anybody,
28:16
you know, to be independent.
28:17
I think you can do it all on your own.
28:19
I love it. I love the independent,
28:21
strong girl energy and Latina girl power.
28:25
Yes. Yes. Yes.
28:26
Jesus. So who is your dream to lab?
28:30
And who did you listen to most when you were growing up
28:33
Oh My gosh.
28:34
So, so many R and B artists.
28:36
I grew up in like the 90 early two thousands R and
28:39
B like I love Keisha Cole.
28:41
My new favorite artist is Summer Walker.
28:44
Like I'm obsessed with her.
28:45
Like I love her.
28:46
You know, Jana Aiko,
28:47
she's another one I would definitely love to work with and you
28:51
know, they, they're like the queens of like the R
28:53
and B. Like they got all the songs you need and
28:56
you know, girls love it.
28:57
Everyone loves it. You know,
28:58
it's just something you can cruise to and I think they would
29:01
be like a perfect collab vibe.
29:03
I love it. I love it,
29:04
putting it out there for you,
29:05
manifesting it. Yes.
29:07
Yes. Yes. So do you have any other musicians in
29:10
your family? Yeah,
29:12
I have my dad and my brother.
29:15
So, yeah, my dad,
29:16
he sings, he plays the guitar.
29:18
He's so talented. Yeah.
29:20
I grew up, like,
29:20
on a lot of,
29:21
like, rock rock and roll,
29:23
classic rock. So we were,
29:24
like, blasting that in the house,
29:26
like loud as heck.
29:27
And then my brother,
29:28
he plays every instrument you could think of,
29:31
like, he could play drums,
29:32
guitar, you know,
29:33
but they're really low key,
29:34
you know, and I'm more like out there about it.
29:36
So they're like cheering me on from the like,
29:38
yeah, like, you know,
29:40
do what you want to do with it.
29:42
So that's beautiful though.
29:43
You have a family that understands the art of what you're doing
29:47
Yeah. Yeah,
29:47
definitely. And then my mom,
29:49
she's a karaoke singer.
29:50
She just likes the karaoke.
29:51
I love it with the.
29:55
So, do you bring any aspect of low rider culture
30:00
into your art? Oh,
30:01
yeah. You know,
30:02
that's who I, you know,
30:03
I do it for,
30:04
I love seeing my music being bummed in,
30:06
you know, the classics and the low riders.
30:09
Like that's why I make like a lot of like old school
30:11
funk, you know,
30:12
because that's just, that's west coast right there.
30:15
So, and then shout out to Low Rider magazine.
30:17
They been putting me on like a bunch of shows and it's
30:21
just been, you know,
30:22
putting my music out there for people to say,
30:24
oh, there is still stuff like this coming out,
30:26
you know, you don't,
30:26
you, you can listen to the old stuff,
30:28
but you could still bring the new school in with that old
30:30
school phone just trying to keep it alive.
30:32
You know, it should be alive forever.
30:34
Absolutely amazing. And what has been the best experience you've had
30:40
so far as an artist,
30:43
shoot, just honestly right now,
30:45
it's just going to different cities and different states.
30:48
Like I said,
30:49
Lowrider magazine, they've been bringing me out to Vegas.
30:52
I got Salt Lake City next.
30:54
So it's, it's so awesome to just see that.
30:58
You know, there's fans like in other states and you know
31:01
the culture. So it's,
31:03
it's awesome. It's been going really good and,
31:04
you know, every project I've been dropping,
31:06
that's also a good experience too.
31:09
Love it. You once said you manifested your show last year
31:14
at the Low Rider Long Beach Super Show.
31:16
Can you share some manifestation tips?
31:19
I'm all about manifesting.
31:22
That is like the one thing that I feel like everyone needs
31:25
to do is just manifest.
31:26
You gotta ask believe and receive it.
31:28
You just got to literally see it in your vision,
31:31
make the steps, you know,
31:32
to do it, don't give up and it's,
31:35
it's gonna come, it's gonna come when it's right,
