Sasha Go Hard: “After I saw everybody was rocking with [my raps], my friends were telling me, ‘Man, it's raw.’ I’m like, ‘I need to stop recording on my VoiceNotes and just go to somebody’s studio.’ I saw Chief Keef posting his stuff on Facebook. And I had hit him up like, ‘What studio he go to?’ And that’s when he introduced me to DJ Kenn. So after that I went to they studio and I recorded. And after I finished recordin’, they were just in there like, ‘You go hard.’ And just kept telling me that I go hard. And they started rocking with me after that. They wanted me to come back to the studio.
“When I saw everybody was loving the “What We Do” song that I recorded, I’m like, ‘Man I gotta get ...’ Everybody keep telling me that I am cold and I go hard. I’m finnakeep continuing to make songs and record. I felt the studio so there ain’t no reason to stop.
When I saw everybody was rocking with me, it was a connection that was made. I’m like, ‘They rocking with me. I’m finna just keep doing me.’
“When I first got in there, I was kinda happy because they was cool. I felt comfortable. I had recorded, SD, he was in the booth with me. He just move his head as I recorded lookin’ like, ‘Dang, this girl raw.’ When I was done, he kept telling me, ‘You go hard.’ Everybody was just rocking with me heavy so I felt good about it. I’m loving this feedback that they are giving me. When I saw everybody was rocking with me, it was a connection that was made. I’m like, ‘They rocking with me. I’m finna just keep doing me.’
“I never knew about ad-libs. They just told me like, ‘Ok, do your ad-libs.’ And I’m looking like, ‘What’s ad-libs?’ They told me, ‘Well, you just go say something over your words or something you already said.’ They taught [me] what was ad-libs. But I had already knew how to put what where just by listening to music period. Just knowing where, ‘Ok, I got to put this right here so it can sound right.’
“I’ve been with Keef way before the rap scene. I just knew him around from outside or something. That’s when I first met SD and Fredo [Santana] and everybody who was in the studio. That was my first time meeting DJ Kenn too.
“When Chief Keef first popped, I had saluted him a couple of times because not only for what he was doing for himself but him and King Louie put a lot of eyes on Chicago. Just to see the talent that we got. I salute them for that. They doing their thing."
