Artist Spotlight: YA$$A

What is your creative process?

I open the curtains, put on some Spanish or Brazilian music, and get to the most important part of my ritual — making a mint latte. I use mashed mint leaves, espresso, sugar, and almond milk. I’m okay without it, but I know I’m not gonna have a good day if I have a mediocre cup.
