    Oooooooh Tey tryna show ya’ll she’s NOT to be played with. Her vocals are admired greatly because she sounds very reminiscent of Lauryn Hill. Lauryn is a legend. Her swag. Her grit. Her realness. And people geniunely miss having that type of artist and I feel Teyana is the closet thing that we have to it. I support this girl, because she really hustled to get where she is. Just wish HOV would manage her. Kanye doesn’t know what to do with her, and half his amazingly talented roster.
