When did you officially become a dancer at King Of Diamonds? What year and how did you rise to the top as the featured dancer?
I moved to Miami almost four years ago to go to school. I started dancing at the old Diamonds then started dancing at KOD shortly after. I’m not a featured dancer at KOD, it’s only when I go out of town [laughs].
Your name has been on the lips on rappers, either on rhyme like Drake, or in the blogs with your rant against Rick Ross spending a million at King Of Diamonds. How does that make you feel?
When I was mentioned in Drake’s song I was shocked. I had no idea whatsoever.
It helps expand the brand, right?
Yes, it totally helped expand my brand. As soon as the song dropped I started getting phone calls to host parties.
How did you become the main chick in the Tyga vid? How was the experience?
The experience was great. Tyga’s manager called my manager about becoming in the video. I heard that the director was Chris Robinson and I was so excited to work with him. It was so cool because it was more than just dancing in the video. It was crazy stunts and explosions.
What’s the next step for you, rumors have swirled that there will be a reality show with surrounding you and KOD. Any truth to that?
That is absolutely false. I don’t know who started that rumor.
Why do you think people gravitate to you or worth mentioning on wax?
People gravitate to me? Never knew that. I am free spirited. I love to have fun and live with no regrets, and I guess people like that.
What do you look for in a dude, or female if that floats your boat?
As long as a person keeps it 100% with me I am fine. Of course, I expect loyalty and honesty. Most of all communication is the key. I’m not mind reader.
How did you come up with the name Blac Chyna?
I actually took the name Blac Chyna from a customer in the club five years ago. I wonder what he is up to now [laughs].
Physically, what do you think is your best feature? And why?
My eyes are my best feature. A person can say a lot with their eyes. My eyes also changes colors depending what color my hair is so that is pretty cool.
