21 year old rapper/singer, Abby Jasmine, drops her most polished project to date, ‘Who Cares’. The 9 track EP includes a feature from Guapdad4000. ‘Who Cares’ is paired with a visual for the single, ‘Coneheads’. The project is now available on all streaming services.
We caught up with Abby to talk lockdown, spare time and reflective pants!
How are you finding the change in routine since lockdown?
I’m learning to be more present with my friends and family, despite social distancing. Finding peace with solitude. Learning to be more proactive. It’s a nice change of pace from my usual routine.
What would you recommend people do in all the ‘spare’ time they are now experiencing?
Do whatever you wanna do. I would say don’t put pressure on yourself. If you feel like laying in bed all day and watching Netflix, do that. If you feel like making music all day, do that. Do whatever makes you feel at ease because this is a tense time.
Has being in quarantine affected your mental health in any way? If so, what do you do to overcome those feelings?
Of course. I feel like I’m way more sensitive now for whatever reason, lmao. Usually if I’m feeling stressed I’ll smoke a joint & paint or take a nap. I get my best ideas during naps believe it or not, lol.
When you get a moment to PAUSE, what do you do for fun?
I like just being around my friends. Smoking. Listening to music. Playing video games.
If you could be anywhere on earth, where would you be and why?
Hawaii. I really just wanna go. I feel like their pineapples there are amazing.
If your style was a song, what would it be?
Describe a time where you took your fashion sense too far, or had a style mishap.
2019 at sxsw I had on these 3m reflective pants. Early in the day, I think I had bent down or something and I felt them rip, so I had to tie my hoodie around my waist to cover it. We were out all day, my pants ripping more and more by the second. I did 2 performances that night with my entire ass hanging out my pants and no one knew but me because my sweater covered it. Once we got back to the Airbnb I showed everybody and they were all surprised as hell because I didn’t complain or say anything the entire day I just let it rock, lol. I think i didn’t say anything cause it was hot out and the rip was giving sis a nice breeze, lmaoooo.
Tell us one thing from your bucket list. (And why)
I want to walk in a fashion show. I’m short as hell but I don’t care, I still wanna do it. I’ve been practicing my model walk.
Tell us something your followers don’t know about you.
I’ve never had a cavity.
What can we expect from you for 2020?
More music, more content. I don’t wanna say too much. Just stream “Who Cares” til then.
