The St. Louis rap newcomer told Complex how she came up with the song’s most-quoted line, ‘I’m outta town, Tuggin’ with my rounds / My coochie pink, my bootyhole brown.” She said it was her first-ever freestyle: “When I’m rapping, I just say stuff about myself. I’ll describe anything… So I was really out of town, thugging with my rounds, and then I’m like, ‘My coochie pink, my booty-hole brown.’ It was true! So I said it.”
