The Daily Grind Video

Somaya Reece made her name known to the masses when she arrived on VH1’S “Love & Hip Hop” as the starving artist who was willing to sleep in the attic of a studio to get her feet planted in NYC’s music industry.

Since then, Somaya has seen her share of altercations with the show’s girls, moved out of the attic and in to her own apartment, detailed her abusive past and reduced her bust size.

Moving out of a studio’s attic can really shift your paradigm.

We were lucky enough to have the lovely Somaya swing by the GlobalGrind offices for a one-on-one interview. 

During the intimate interview, Somaya revealed the reasons behind her recent choice to get a breast reduction, and revisited a dark place in her past to tell us about the domestic violence that almost claimed her life. 

Check out the exclusive interview with Somaya in the video above.
