For the latest entry in our Conversations With interview series, HYPEBEAST linked up with Dreezy to discuss representation of brown skin women in the music industry, her personal and career growth, her love for Chanel and being underappreciated.

Since breaking out in 2014 after her viral freestyle “Chi-Raq” freestyle, Dreezy has gradually grown to one of the most consistent artists in music. The Chicago native has since signed to Interscope records and dropped two albums, No Hard Feelings and Big Dreez. Since breaking into the industry, Dreezy’s talent has always been evident but over the last two years especially, she’s turned potential into results and its starting to pay off.

“I feel like the first couple of years I was trying to figure it out,” she explains. “Even being signed to a label, being moved, like I lived in Chicago my whole life, so me having to move to L.A. and learn the people out there, it’s real different from Chicago. I think it’s all been a learning process. Plus my personal life, I’m still going through things personally. I think last year I really got a hold on [everything]. I’m like, ‘You Big Dreez, you know what you doing.’”

Most recently, Dreezy released her sophomore album Big Dreez, an impressive full-length project that showed off the entirety of her skill set. The 10-song LP featured guest appearances from Offset, Kash Doll, Jeremih, Jacquees and Derez Deshon.
