In a profile with Billboard on December 8, Gangsta Boo discussed her return to the mainstream music scene in addition to her impact as a southern femcee, telling the outlet, “I’d truthfully say that I actually have to confess, respectfully and humbly, that I’m the blueprint.” Remarking that she’s often told, “Gangsta Boo walked so a number of people could run,” she added, “It just feels great to face in yourself and look within the mirror and be like, ‘Wow, you probably did that.’ And never sell your soul and go to bed at night with a smile in your face.”
