Speaking on when DJing became a career, the star said: “DBN Gogo: I think it only kicked in this year when I realized my mom was starting to understand. That’s when I was like “okay, it might be a real thing”. When she’s just like “oh, so you have money mos” and it’s like “yeah, I actually do. I don’t actually need to ask you for stuff”. Like I actually work now as much as it’s weird, I actually work. So that’s when I realized that’s it’s a real thing.”
