The past month has been an eventful one for Angela, as she has celebrated the debut of her new line, the debut of her new baby niece, supported her Uncle as he celebrated his Rush Arts Luncheon and sat front row during NYFW, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t still hard at work.
In her interview with the magazine, Angela spoke about the commentary that comes with being the niece and daughter of hip-hop’s OG’s.
“I’m used to the comments,” Angela shares, “but at the end of the day I’m not concerned, because I know how hard I work. I can go to my dad and my uncle for advice, but other than that, anything that I have today, I’ve worked for. I pour my heart into it, and I live, sleep, breathe, eat it. I’m not going to sit here and prove to someone that I’m working; you’re going to see for yourself.”

On her new niece:
“I am super excited. This is the first baby of the family and I am so happy. It’s incredible. So seeing the sister I grew up with have a daughter is amazing. I’m thrilled to eventually have a child of my own when I settle down at some point. For now, I’m just going to spoil my niece.”
On the downside of fame:
“I don’t like when people are so negative and quick to judge the people they feel are on a pedestal. That’s a downside to being in the spotlight. You have to deal with people constantly poking at you or how you look. It’s always something. But that comes with fame. As long as you have thick enough skin, you’re fine. I prefer not to go on blogs, but if they’re commenting on my Instagram, of course I am going to see it. The best thing to do is ignore it.”
On plastic surgery:
“I’ll stick to ‘never say never’. If you feel like that’s something you want to do at a certain age, you should be free to do it. I haven’t personally—I’m pretty confident and happy with the way I look.”
On her ‘rebellious’ moment:
“My most rebellious moment was going out and doing things on my own without the help of my family. I’m living in that moment now and I don’t know if it’s so rebellious—it’s just being myself and not apologizing for it.”
