16-Year-Old Rapper Becky G Debuts on Carson Daly Morning Show
The truth is, Becky doesn't have time to waste loitering at local convenience stores because she's too busy becoming one of the fastest rising stars in rap industry.
During her first-ever morning radio appearance, she told Carson all about how she got her start and what's on the horizon for her promising career.
You may not recognize her name quite yet, but the proud Inglewood native has built up some major buzz after being featured on Cher Lloyd's "Oath" and a remix of Ke$ha's "Die Young."
It all began for Becky around age 9 when her parents lost their home and her entire family moved into their grandfather's converted garage. "It was cramped, but you know what? We made the best out of it," she told Carson Friday morning. "It was kind of like a sleepover for us every night."
Determined to help her family, Becky G started auditioning for commercials and experimenting with songwriting. "I call it my little mini-mid-life crisis. I know it sounds crazy, but a part of me did see it as [a way to] help my family, but it was also a way to like express myself and the things I was going through and just to like talk about things and that's kind of how songwriting came about." A lot more.
