She continued, “I did end up talking about it, because there are a lot more people dealing with this s— than you think, and they should know that someone who looks like me or does this could have the same problem as the fiend on the corner.”
In the same interview, Chyna said she realized she “didn’t have control” over her past addiction problems when it started affecting her work life.
“It got to the point where I had to do something just to be able to get onstage and do my job. I didn’t like that. That was taking it too far, because it stops being fun and starts being because you have to, and that’s when you need to chill,” she said.
According to the outlet, Chynna began her career as a model when she was 14 after signing with Ford Models.
During her rise to fame, she was mentored by A$AP Yams — who died in 2015 — and her association with A$AP Mob helped her first gain traction in the hip-hop scene.
Her music career took off in 2013 after she released her hit track “Selfie” and “Glen Coco” in 2014.
She then released the EPs I’m Not Here. This Isn’t Happening in 2015 and music 2 die 2 in 2016. Her final EP, titled in case i die first, was released in December 2019.
