KR: I always been a trendsetter. Everybody always ask me, “hey what do you have on?” “What are you wearing?” “How you do that?” So I’ve always been a trendsetter so I said to myself “you know what, let me let the world know what I really have and let your everyday girl who really can’t afford to wear what J.LO is wearing”. I want to be able to appeal to the audience not just to the celebrity world. I want to cater to the everyday girl that likes to dress fly.

KR: Nicki Minaj, Drake, of course Lil Wayne. If Biggie was alive, I would’ve want to do something with him. Lastly, I wanna roll with my Jamaican family. You know I’m from Trinidad so Movado, Lady Saw, all those artists in Jamaica.
The Source: What future projects the fans should be looking for?
KR: Well, I started a label so I’m looking for new artists and I have a distribution through Empire. So if my fans really want to be a artist in the music industry, I have a new label called Redd Entertainment. Also, I have a cosmetic line that’s going to all the stores worldwide. My cosmetic line is called KR Cosmetics. I’m about to start my own liquor line called Redd so I got some cute ventures that’s coming out that I can’t wait to show my fans
