Many have influenced the 25-year-old, but one particular artist goes unmentioned, unintentionally. When asked by HotNewHipHop, which other artist has influenced the younger rapper, Omerettà said Tupac.
“We grew up listening to Tupac in my house. It’s crazy because I rarely mention him in my interviews because I feel like that’s such a cliché thing to do. Everybody wants to mention Pac. But literally in my house, we grew up listening, like everybody in my family loved Tupac,” she said.
“That’s the artist that brings my whole family together. When he plays, we all know and sing all the songs. Everybody loves Pac. Plus he’s a Gemini, and I’m a Gemini,” Omerettà explained. “I used to think I was him reincarnated. But once I found out that he died in September and I was born in June, I was like, okay, I was born before he died. So I guess not.”
