Inspired by the Kings of the South that precede her (including UGK, Beyonce, and Big KRIT), she acknowledges her own trill identities by identifying as a "King," herself. She' works to ensure that all melanated girls, women, and femmes live in thriving, affirming, and robust communities with healthy places to work and access to quality healthcare, including abortion. Born, raised, and educated in Mississippi, she creates authentic, thoughtful, and comedic commentary on politics, news, culture, and movement organizing that's firmly rooted in the place she will forever call 'home.'
