I am a nymphomaniac, a jump on the dick manic kind of manic.
On what made write her new song “Manic”:
That is just a part of me a part of who I am; I can be pretty vulgar in my everyday life. I think that all my friends and everyone that knows me knows that I am inappropriate a lot of the times and I like to say stuff that people are like, ‘huh?’ Since I was a little girl, I have been getting in trouble for having a dirty mouth, I used to like recite Lil Kim Hardcore lyrics in elementary school.
On the “Manic” lyrics being inspired by Big Sean:
Yeah the ruler part. The song was actually inspired by the beat when I heard the beat I just kept saying ‘hop on that dick like a maniac.’

There is going to me more Twenty 88, it is some of my favorite music I ever made. There is going to be more though for sure.
On if she would ever go against Big Sean in a freestyle battle:
Sean is way too good free style rapper, he is the best rapper that I ever herd personally. I would not battle him. I have to practice a little bit more.
On if she cheated on her husband with Big Sean:
No I was not [cheating]. I was married for two years. Do not believe what you hear.
On her new album:
So basically I am just really into expressing myself, and this year I want to show every side of me really, dive into who I am, which I feel like I have been doing since I first started but obviously I am getting older and I feel like I am more in tuned to who I am and less afraid to express every side of myself.
