Finding Happiness

Phlo Finister: “The happiness that I’m trying to reach is in myself. I continue to love myself and not pay attention to the press stuff. I’m very low-key. I have a lot of friends that are famous and I see how it affects their personality and their attitude due to the press and what they have to say. There’s so many opinions going around and I just try to stay humble and remember who I am as a person.”

“I do a lot of things myself and that gives me a lot of confidence in my brand and what I’m trying to do. I was pretty manic and depressive when I was a teenager because I didn’t have anyone or anything supporting me, [not even] my family. I got bullied as a teen and a pre-teen so I just have a thicker skin.”

“Fuck my image, let’s not think about the way I look. Let’s think about the music and exactly what we’re doing right now and the movement and the revolution of it all. And how we’re going to change the image of these genres.”

“I give most of my love to my grandmother. She’s really happy. She’s the most like proper woman and she’s from Texas so like her attitude is just so different but it’s just so dope that she likes my music. Because it’s not even her but she loves it because it’s me and she knows me and she loves me.

"She sees my videos and my music and she’s in amazement and she just is like you’ve done amazing for yourself and you should really be proud of yourself because you had a hard life and now you’re doing your thing. That’s not an excuse, you know.”
