Which dating app have you had the most luck on? How so?

TikTok! I actually met my girlfriend on there. As funny as it sounds, it really is the best way to get a feel for someone [rather] than actual apps that were made for dating in my opinion. You can get a sense of someone’s humor, vibe/ aesthetic, see them showcase exactly what they’re passionate about. It can be a very personal — yet public — video archive of your individuality and artistic expression.

If you could write the headline for your profile, what would it be?

I take popular movie/ TV romance tropes and make them gay 🙂

Where do you want to be five years from now?

I’ll be in LA hopefully getting steady work as an actor and having fun, taking part in projects that I’m passionate about and speak to me.

Which TV shows are helping you survive 2020 and why?

Killing Eve and the Harley Quinn show are my go to when I have the time to sit down and watch something. I’m in love with the passion, tension, darkness and intensity in Killing Eve. As for the Harley Quinn show, she’s one of my favorite characters of all time so it’s a show that just brings me a lot of comfort, great for when I just wanna chill.

If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?

I’d love to have the power to teleport. I love going to new places but I hate the traveling and flying it takes to get there. Then I could see my favorite person with the snap of my fingers no matter where they may find themselves.

What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?

I was in a Zoom class bored out of my mind and I had my camera and mic off, so I figured I’d film a funny POV on tiktok to some sad song just for a kick. When I started filming, I failed to realize that I accidentally unmuted my mic while my teacher was going through some slides and it was fine at first. It just sounded like I was sad and opening up to everyone in class out of nowhere and apparently my teacher asked if I was okay, but I had muted my laptop’s volume at that point. I started saying inappropriate things that should not be said in a recorded Zoom class; it was 15 seconds of agony that I didn’t even know everyone was going through until one of my friends in my class started spamming my phone saying that my mic wasn’t muted. I audibly gasped with a horrified look on my face. Then after I muted myself again I had the craziest of laugh attacks. It’d been a while since I laughed that hard, oh my god.

What’s your next move if TikTok is banned?

I’m still in college majoring in acting, so I’d just focus on bettering myself and the craft. I’d probably find another platform to post things when I need an outlet like TikTok to express myself artistically. I also stream on Twitch, so I’d like to keep doing that as well.

What was your first reaction after going viral?

I was beyond shocked. I blew up with video of me as the school’s resident delinquent poking fun at and flirting with the class nerd (the audience). I couldn’t believe that people enjoyed me talking to the camera that much. It for sure felt very rewarding.

What was the last song you listened to?

“Meet Me Halfway” by the Black Eyed Peas.

What is your most irrational fear?

I’m scared of mirrors sometimes. Especially at night, I’m afraid my reflection will start moving on its own and try to kill me or that a monster will appear from the back of me or that a serial killer will come out from behind the shower curtain and murder me. Vivid imaginations aren’t so fun when they’re bored.

A$AP Rocky – M’$ (feat. Lil Wayne) lyrics

[Intro: Lil Wayne]
One time for A$AP Yams
Let’s go

[Verse 1: A$AP Rocky]
What’s this I see? Niggas tryna act like G’s
Got A$AP, got Fergy with me
It’s a new day, no Black Eyed Peas
That’s that shit, mhm, mhm, yeah, that’s that shit
(You ain’t got no Flacko in your Serato?)
Mothafucka better blast that shit
Niggas drink quarts of the Clicquot
Bitches sniff raw of the kilos
Flacko makes sales of the perico
She knows, went to ATL for my C-Note
‘Member, I ain’t ever have no home
Now I got a penthouse and a beach home
Back when I was rockin’ least (2 Chainz!!!)
I was trappin’ off at least like three phones
Me and Yams made the plan
Then I paid myself and I gave myself advance
Way before I became myself
I’d like to thank myself because I made myself the man
It’s like lately I ain’t myself
I’d rather hang myself before I play myself
I tell her, “throw on the dress with the pinstripes”
Know the one that fit the booty all skin tight, that’s right
Yeah, you that shit, mhm, mhm, yeah, move that shit
Frontin’ like you did it for the fellas
Get all the bitches jealous when you do that shit
But my neck is gold, the rest is froze
Sex and hoes, best of both
Girls and girls, perpetual
Sippin’ slow, Texas throwed
Comma, I’m about decimals
Chill and get faded
I’m surprised that we made it
Young niggas know the sky’s the limit
All I ever wanna do is chill and get shaded
Chill and get faded
Shit, I’m surprised that we made it
Nowadays stress overrated
All I ever wanna do is chill and get shaded

[Pre-Hook: A$AP Rocky]
I wanna see you take it all off
And she just wanna make it harder
And we just end up takin’ longer
Can’t impress with them diamonds though, them diamonds

[Hook: A$AP Rocky]
Talkin’ about M’s
Talkin’ bout M’s, nigga, M’s
Make ’em talk about, make ’em talk about M’s
Nigga, talkin’ bout M’s
Nigga, talkin’ bout M’s
Nigga, talkin’ bout M’s
Make ’em talk about, talkin’ bout M’s, nigga
Talkin’ bout M’s

[Interlude: A$AP Rocky]
It’s like lately all I ever seem to think about is M’s, nigga
Talkin’ ’bout M’s
See the same thing all up in my bank account
M’s, nigga, talkin’ ’bout M’s
And my YouTube account say the same amount
M’s, nigga, talkin’ ’bout M’s

[Verse 2: Lil Wayne]
Money talk and dogs bark
I got a pocket full of stones in my stonewashed
Lambo, brand new Lambo
With tiger stripes on it call that bitch a golf cart
I’m outchea, I’m so outchea, I swear niggas have no idea
I swear niggas better wear riot gear
Cause I appear and pow loud and clear give ’em diarrhea, oh
I re-up tonight, I’mma be up tonight, cookin’ a key up tonight
Niggas de-up I slide to the right, throw up a three up in time
Put a B up, let’s fight, don’t get beat up tonight
Feet up in my European, I ride with me heater inside
Kill you and your dog then go put on a shirt that say PETA for life
Like you sneeze you on tight, you got beef I got white
You got beef I got white, I got green, I got white, I got pink
I got pints, I got lean, I got ice, I got needles and pipes
I got clean, I got right, I got mean, I got nice
That’s that Tina and Ike, got on lean on her price
I don’t cheat on her price
Try to cheat on the dice, you get beat on the spot
I get keys on the spot and I keep it on lock
And I keep it up safe, what you keep in your safe?
S’what I spent on my watch and I wave it like Ma$e
Bout to redo the face, get a see-through AK
I eat seafood and steak
But girl I’mma treat you like cake til I get a sweet tooth tooth ache
But wait let’s talk about M’s, not about them
I love my BM’s, I love my YM ain’t no more CM
Let’s pluck out the stems, let’s fuck like a nymph
She walk out, she limp, it’s dark and we dim, yeah
We dem niggas, handcuffing him niggas back up and skim niggas
See that we strapped up we cap up your brim nigga
Fill my cup up to the rim nigga, Tunechi

A$AP Rocky – Pain (feat. Overdoz) lyrics

Uh, Pain
Uh, Pain
Uh, Pain

So figure up, shining like the star
With your head in the clouds, some fighters shoot you down
Hands on the ground, back against the wall
Tell me who you’d call when no one else around

Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action

Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action

The future will be televised, haters getting genocide
23 and 43, I’m talkin my more jealous sides
My niggas is hella fly, you over accessorize
Better not, it’s in my repertoire, forever ever high
I never lie, never tell a lie, I would testify
Set aside dreams, I’m a king ask Aretha Scott
Two faced, bad ass, in a nice set of thighs
We on the weed, I need a umbrella ella ella ah

Everybody knows me
Shit, still ain’t got no cash
Bitch, get that glass quick
Post my bad habits
Fuck you and your Instagram
Match around man though
Royal blue folls, getting head in the red Lambo
Media take me out, tmz all in the vip
Bitch I’m hard and my lube come free
Too much boss if you ask me
Almost fucked fame, but she came with money
I got two bad bitches, haters wanna take em from me

Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action

Lights, camera, action, Lights, camera, action

Tryina get on in this industry
Acting like your birthday
Breaking down cocaine with the ebt
These male groupies doing it
However, whatever they seeing on the box
Everybody spit, everybody hide, everybody anonymous
Solost, niggas talking dollars getting change
In a minute I’mma lose 2 scrit
Well one, give the full 98
Like fuck coach, I’m cutthroat
So what ghost? Do you head for the year they say might be the end?
Better look within
Uh

Glisten the glamors, we pose for the cameras
Get all niggas with me, they pose with the hammers
Ghetto goes with me, pimp toes in the sandals
No dirty laundry, get your nose out my Henny boy
Clothes in my hand boy, that baby need camouflage
Rims from the pen, you would think I was a samurai
Drop rocks, bloomy scott pens, bitch it’s hammer time
Getting dirty money but I keep my hand sanitized

Life is what you need, won’t you take a Z? Feel the breeze
Smoke the Sour Deeze, hit that shit and please act at ease
Wouldn’t you wanna be like the Black Eyed Peas, all these 3’s
Star, that’s Hollywood, won’t you rest in peace?

So figure up, shining like the star
With your head in the clouds, some fighters shoot you down
Hands on the ground, back against the wall
Tell me who you’d call when no one else around

Ari Lennox – Goat

Of all time the greatest
So won’t you hit my line

Horrorshow – If You Know What I Mean (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
Now once upon a time not long ago (Not long ago)
There was an ocker kicking rhymes up in the land of rock and roll
He’s not a rocker, just a stoner on a roll (On a roll)
Goin’ all out on the road and tryna make the honour roll
See I been all up in the dojo practicin’ my braggadocio
Learned to toot my own horn, blow my saxophone and my oboe
Soprano, alto, baritone, mastered my high and low notes
A quick jazz cigarette then I’m takin’ my solo
If you ain’t heard about it ask around
On any given Sunday bet we turn the party out
Get love on every corner walkin’ through our part of town
Yeah, you that lucky winner, Price Is Right and so you better come on down
To the inner west, come and visit the turf
You’ll see my crew be runnin’ Sydney like the City2Surf
From the pretty beach sides to the sticks in the ‘burbs
They say "that dude Smooth Nicholas, he slick with them words"

[Hook: Solo]
I was rollin’ with my brosef and he turned and said to me
"Homie, you been goin’ in since we was only seventeen"
I said "I ain’t one to blow my own, but I tend to agree
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean, what I mean"
Now the punters say they love the way I spit it on the beat
It put the roof over my head and put the kicks up on my feet
Nothin’ changed, still a couple snakes, we cut them blades of green
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean

[Verse 2: Solo]
The sorta shit that they let fly, I could do with my eyes closed
But I’m taking the high road, tryna scale heights, never fall off cause I climb slow
See my sign’s goat, as in G.O.A.T
Make my way from A to B while spelling out what’s plain to see
My man was shotgun in the ‘Yota, looked over and said to me
"Homie, you been goin’ in since we was only seventeen"
When we’d rock up to your house party, rollin’ twenty deep
Turnin’ off your Black Eyed Peas and throwin’ on some BDP
R.B.G, R.O.C, Eminem or D.R.E
R.S.E, BnE or Suffa, Pressure, and Debris
For the moment probably be that O.V.O or T.D.E
But homie this that O.N.E, that D.A.Y, that E.N.T
Nowadays we got our names up on the list and drinks are free
It’s like something I think I saw in a vision or a dream
I’m tryna paint the kind of picture that make you picture the scene
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean

[Hook: Solo]
I was rollin’ with my brosef and he turned and said to me
"Homie, you been goin’ in since we was only seventeen"
I said "I ain’t one to blow my own, but I tend to agree
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean, what I mean
Now the punters say they love the way I spit it on the beat
It put the roof over my head and put the kicks up on my feet
Nothin’ changed, still a couple snakes, we cut them blades of green
If ah, you know what I—you know what I mean

[Outro: Solo]
Don’t wanna blow my own trumpet, don’t wanna toot my own horn
Don’t wanna beat my own drum kit, don’t wanna write my own score
But they like it, they love it, they buy it, they bump it, recite it
Turn it up and then they bump it up some more
Don’t wanna blow my own trumpet, don’t wanna toot my own horn
Don’t wanna beat my own drum kit, don’t wanna write my own score
But they like it, they love it, they buy it, they bump it, recite it
Turn it up and then they bump it up some more

Black Eyed Peas – #WHERESTHELOVE (feat. The World)

[Chorus: will.i.am]
People killin’ people dyin’
Children hurtin’, I hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preachin’?
Would you turn the other cheek again?
Mama, mama, mama, tell us what the hell is goin’ on
Can we all just get along?
Father, Father, Father, help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me, got me questioning
(Where’s the love)

[Verse 1: will.i.am (Jamie Foxx & Mary J. Blige)]
Yo, what’s going on with the world, momma?
(Where’s the love)
Yo, people living like they ain’t got no mommas
(Where’s the love)
I think they all distracted by the drama and attracted to the trauma, mama
(Where’s the love)
I think they don’t understand the concept or the meaning of karma
(Where’s the love)

[Verse 2: Diddy (Mary J. Blige)]
Overseas, yeah, they trying to stop terrorism
(Where’s the love)
Over here on the streets, the police shoot
The people put the bullets in ’em
(Where’s the love)
But if you only got love for your own race
(Where’s the love)
Then you’re gonna leave space for others to discriminate
(Where’s the love)

[Verse 3: will.i.am]
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate, then you’re bound to get irate
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how hate works and operates
Man, we gotta set it straight
Take control of your mind, just meditate
And let your soul just gravitate to the love
So the whole world celebrate it

[Chorus: will.i.am, Mary J. Blige, Andra Day, Nicole Scherzinger & Tori Kelly]
People killin’ people dyin’
Children hurtin’, I hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preachin’?
Would you turn the other cheek again?
Mama, mama, mama, tell us what the hell is goin’ on
Can’t we all just get along?
Father, Father, Father, help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me, got me questioning
(Where’s the love)

[Verse 4: Taboo (Jessie J & Andra Day)]
It just ain’t the same, always in change
(Where’s the love)
New days are strange, is the world insane?
(Where’s the love)
Nation droppin’ bombs killing our little ones
(Where’s the love)
Ongoing suffering as the youth die young
(Where’s the love)

[Verse 5: Game]
Where’s the love when a child gets murdered, or a cop gets knocked down?
Black lives, not now
Everybody matter to me, all races
Y’all don’t like what I’m sayin’? Haterade, tall cases
Everybody hate somebody, guess we all racist
Black Eyed Peas do a song about love and y’all hate this
All these protest with different colored faces
We was all born with a heart, why we gotta chase it?
And every time I look around

[Verse 6: Taboo + Ty Dolla $ign (Mary J. Blige & Jessie J)]
Every time I look up, every time I look down
No one’s on a common ground
(Where’s the love)
And if you never speak truth, then you never know how love sounds
(Where’s the love)
And if you never know love, then you never know God, wow
(Where’s the love)
Where’s the love y’all? I don’t, I don’t know
Where’s the truth y’all? I don’t know

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
People killin’ people dyin’
Children hurtin’, I hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father, Father, Father, help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me, got me questioning
(Where’s the love, where’s the love)

[Bridge: DJ Khaled (Usher, Nicole Scherzinger, will.i.am & Justin Timberlake)]
Love is the key
(Where’s the love)
Love is the answer
(Where’s the love)
Love is the solution
(Where’s the love)
They don’t want us to love
(Where’s the love)
Love is powerful
(Where’s the love)

[Verse 7: A$AP Rocky + Jaden Smith]
My mama asked me why I never vote, never vote
Cause police men want me dead and gone, dead and gone
That election looking like a joke, such a joke, man
And the weed man still sellin’ dope, oh no
Somebody gotta give these niggas hope, give us hope
All he ever wanted was a smoke, my gosh
Said he can’t breathe with his hands in the air
Layin’ on the ground died from a choke

[Verse 8: apl.de.ap + Fergie]
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders
As I’m gettin’ older y’all people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin’
Selfishness got us followin’ the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinemas
What happened to the love and the values of humanity?
(Where’s the love)
What happened to the love and the fairness and equality?
(Where’s the love)
Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity
(Where’s the love)
Lack of understanding leading us away from unity
(Where’s the love)
