theJasmineBRAND: Are we going to see you on the journey of becoming that female hip hop artist that you want to be on the show this season?

Hazel-E: I definitely am. I mean, I’ve been doing it for five years I started out in PR but you know I wanted to live my own dream. Idris Elba brought me out in the game and I’ve been grinding ever since from valley girl to signing to Swisha House and now I’m on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood and you about to see me turn up the new single coming, now you know.

 theJasmineBRAND: Now you know, so tell me what is the message that you want to put through with your music?

Hazel-E: I want to put through to girls around the world I have a company Call Girl Code Incorporated,  yo you ain’t gotta be out here shaking your a–, stripping “that’s what you said during the Q&A right I didn’t have to lay on my back”. I didn’t, I really didn’t. I went to college and got a bachelor’s degree and I’m telling these young ladies out here it’s ok you can get an education, you ain’t gotta do what they want you to do to get on top. If you use this right here your brain you can still win. It might take you a little longer but you can still get it.
