Rihanna graces the cover of Rolling Stone magazine for the second time. The issue hits newsstands on Friday and in the cover story she talks about her image, the 777 tour and getting back together with Chris Brown. Here is an excerpt where she talks about her relationship with Chris.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world. You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about shit. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”
“He doesn’t have the luxury of fucking up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

I took a break from NYC over the holidays to visit my hometown & filmed this on New Year’s Eve. It features me flipping a foreign sample before attending a Mask & Glove NYE concert. Somewhat similar to how I produce for artists such as Troy Ave & Ryshon Jones, I break my process down step by step so you can see exactly what goes into my sample based productions. Enjoy.
