Brianna Perry: "She started [the label] and she'd taken notice of me and my movement and she'd seen me on Rap City. She talked to Trina about me, and was just following what I had going on because I was on my grind. We had a meeting, I performed, she wanted to sign me, and the momentum was up. Just being around a musical icon was a learning experience.

"I got to watch her prepare for big worldwide tours, and to see her in concert is something fantastic, there's so much going on. It takes so much hard work to put it together—the dancers, the staging, the lighting, all of that. I got to see that aspect of the game, and watching her and how she is in the studio. She's so dedicated and so focused and always trying to create new sounds."
