When asked about how working with Issa Rae has impacted her, Baby Tate explained that she always encourages her to be authentic. "I think the biggest advice Issa has given me has also just been advice that I tell myself, which is just to keep doing me and keep being dope as myself," she told BET. "I really appreciate other people appreciating who I am. And just like, don't change that, because what you got is really dope and really solid."

"I think as people as human beings, we should always be evolving and growing," Baby Tate told BET about her approach to living and why she changed her name. "That was a big factor in making the decision to change my name from Yung Baby Tate to Baby Tate, and so absolutely I go back and listen to some of my old songs sometimes. And you know, there might be a little cringe line in there – something that I just wouldn't say these days. And I'm sure that in a couple of years, I'll listen back and there will be more."


She Won't Go Under the Knife


Baby Tate has been the subject of body shaming. "I come out with a two-inch protruding belly and it's, 'My God, she's eating McDonald's every day,'" she told the New York Times. However, she isn't ready to go under the knife. "So many people have died and I feel like people don't know that, they don't care about that, especially the young girls that look up to all of us," she said about why she hasn't gotten plastic surgery. "They see that, and they think: This is what I need to get."


She Loves Her Body, "In Whatever State It Is In"

"I'm going to love my body in whatever state it is in," Baby Tate told New York Times. "Whether I'm working out at the time, not working out, whether I'm eating pasta every day or I'm eating salad every day, it's a journey. This is my vessel that I'm on this Earth with and so I got to carry it, and I'm going to continue to love it."


Music Is Her "Own Personal Therapy"

"I feel like whenever I make music, it's from a space of debriefing and decompressing for myself. It's like my own personal therapy. Like I'm talking to a therapist and the person talking back is me. So that's how I create, because even just growing up, when I first started making music when I was 13, there was a lot of music that I was making that there were things I wanted to say that I didn't really know how to express—maybe to my mom, my teachers, or to a boy that I liked in school," Baby Tate told V Magazine.
