"I'm trying to get these kids off the streets and show them that you can sell CDs instead of selling these drugs. I be out here, everyday, doing it. They can do it the same way. You know what I'm saying? Someone taught me how to engineer, I ain't got no problem teaching someone else how to engineer. I ain't go no problem with it. I get more fans supporting me than I my own family. That shit's crazy. I'm staying positive and people don't like that. They don't like seeing you be positive and doing good things and helping other people out. I don't understand that shit.   The most challenging times while getting my project out is having to support myself, for real. Moms, she's disabled, so she don't work. So, I have to work a lil bit, take care of the bills. I pay them in advance, then I go back to doing my music and stuff. My family don't really support me, it's just me out here. Don't get me wrong, it's hard. I be hearing no's. I can go back to my old ways, but that's the devil wanting me to quit. If I quit, I'd be quitting on everything and will never succeed in life. Believe in yourself cause ain't nobody gonna believe in you the way you do. Ain't nobody wanting to see you succeed the way you do. At the end of the day, you gotta look in the mirror and make sure you happy, for real." - Tay Tay Laflare, Parkland
