“I just didn’t really care about anything else but creating stuff.” It’s a simple but powerful answer from producer Wondagurl when asked about how she was able to have the focus and discipline to achieve so much at such a young age. At the same time that others teens might have been going to parties, gossiping or navigating the waters of dating, Wondagurl was working on her craft of beatmaking: “I was enjoying that and nothing else seemed as fun to me.” Her dedication has paid off, and at just 20 years old she’s already one of rap’s most respected producers: she’s worked with the hottest names in the music industry, including Jay Z, Drake, Kanye West, Travis Scott, SZA and Young Thug, among others, racking up a couple Grammy nominations in the process.
"Riverdale" Star Asha Bromfield Reveals What She'd Tell Her Younger Self
"My dreams made a lot of people uncomfortable."
When I was 17, my high school teachers told me I would never be a star.
I say teachers, with an "s," because I was told this more than once, by more than one teacher. It was a rhetoric I heard all throughout my long, agonizing high school years from peers, teachers, and the people who surrounded me. The reason being was my dreams were too big and my spirit was way too loud. I was honest about my passions and clear about my vision. I was candid about what I saw for myself and vocal about my convictions, and people hated me for that.
