"It made me look at everything differently — I was outside the box now," she says of the experience. "I was making over 100 grand a year, and I have nothing to show for it. So when I fell, it made me think, You ran through all that money? I thought, If I have to do it again, I have to have goals. I need to put my money toward something instead of cars and clothes and shoes and bags."

To help finance her rap career — she's not signed to a label or backed by investors — Tip Drill went back to the strip club. She worked as a waitress at the Office, KOD's more modest Miami Gardens neighbor, and for a few months she even returned to stripping. But she's since left both behind.

"It's hard when you're dancing and trying to do something else," she says. "You gotta drink, [and] you have drunken nights where you don't want to get up the next day. I'm trying to take it seriously."

Her greatest asset on her quest for rap stardom might be her Twitter persona, which easily ranks among Miami's most entertaining. She compares fart stories with the equally potty-mouthed Skrawberry, hilariously breaks down current events, and flirts with fawning female fans. Though she has a boyfriend, Tip Drill is outspokenly bisexual, making Twitter overtures with requests for "stomach-to-ass ratio" pics. ("I like a big butt," she says.)

The request has become such a catch phrase that she even had it printed on T-shirts. And it's led to plenty of sex for both her and her man. "In real life, girls are scared," she says. "They'll say, 'I saw Tip Drill; I was gonna say hi.' But on Twitter, the girls love every famous stripper. There's a couple girls on there, if I tweeted them, I probably had it. Or my boyfriend did."

For someone so open on social media, it's surprising to hear Tip Drill describe herself as an introvert. But she guesses that her shyness is part of what's held back her advancement in the music game.

"I do everything myself," she says. "But there's a lot of shit that I won't do. I have a lot of pride."
