At the age of 14, Chynna was signed by a modelling agency when a scout saw her get off a roller coaster in an amusement park. It is the image that best describes a life in the fast lane:  at 21, she had already decided that she was more interested in rap than in fashion, she saw how her music mentor (A$AP Yams, founder of A$AP Mob) died of an overdose.  A short time later, she herself was addicted to opiates. Now, at the age of 24 and clean, she raps slow-mo on dense beats. It seems as if, after all that she has been through, she is worried about reaching the future, but she shouldn’t worry about that:  it could easily be hers.
