Young Devyn Chops It Up W/ The SOHH Squad
Recently, Young Devyn linked up with SOHH to dish on her “Straight To It” banger. She dug a bit deeper and talked about her drive to win and never give up on her grind.
“My biggest strength is that I keep going. For some reason, even when I feel like I can’t keep going anymore, I keep going. I tell people that all the time. Even like not really artists but people in general, let’s say you got started in 2016. A lot of people who started in 2016 aren’t here right now … there’s a lot of reinventing I had to do, learning myself, figuring myself out and taking a break, stopping, going, ups, downs, nights when I was crying. Upset. But I kept going. That was the beauty of it.”
