GloRilla has revealed she had to pull the plug on some family and friends after she blew up and became a star thanks to her hit single “F.N.F. (Let’s Go).”
In her interview with The Cut published this week, Big Glo reflected on how she had to make sacrifices and leave certain people behind because the money got in the way of their relationship.
According to the Memphis, Tennessee native she had to cut off over half of her family members. “Me blowing up changed a lot, like 50 percent of my family,” GloRilla explained. “I really don’t even care to talk about it. Money change the people around you. It don’t change you, per se. It fasho change people around you, though.”
She added: “I don’t got a problem cutting people off, and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. But I have no problem cutting people off once I see what type of stuff they be on. They just got to go. Because it ain’t no room for that no more. I’m on a whole ‘nother level now, and if you’re still on bullshit, then I just don’t want to talk to you.”
GloRilla spoke about relationships fizzling out on one of her most personal tracks, “No More Love,” where she recalled a specific situation with a former friend in the second verse. According to the verse, things went sour once money got involved and the friend began hanging out with other people dissing her in the process.
“We was solid as a rock, but ’bout that paper, had to cut some hoes/ It was fuck the world with them, but now I’m just like, ‘Fuck them hoes’ (Fuck ’em)/ Catch one of them bitches now, no doubt I’ll probably up that ho (Baow, baow)/ And it really makes me mad because I really love them hoes,” Glo raps on the track.
She continued: “We ain’t even fall out, we just don’t talk, what the dissin’ ’bout?/ Now you hangin’ with the hoes who we be talkin’ shit about/ Start fuckin’ with that n-gga, then you got up on that weird shit/ But I ain’t even say nothin’ ’cause you’d probably say I’m weird, bitch/ Always put on for my bitch, I used to wear my friend shirt/ Swear to God, I feel it in my body when my friend hurt.”
Elsewhere in her interview with The Cut, GloRilla revealed she wasn’t fond of her deep rapping voice back in the day. Her voice started to change when she picked up smoking, and when she tried to alter her voice, her friends stepped in.
“When I first started rapping. I wanted to sound like a girl,” she told the outlet before mentioning her friends wanting her to keep her deep voice. “They were like, ‘You really got bars. Your voice just sound squeaky.’ I was like, ‘Oh, okay, let me just put emphasis on what I already sound like, just add a lil bit more sauce to it.’”[via]
