Late last night, Jhene Aiko hopped on Twitter to set the record straight about her ethnicities, which led her to explain why she now avoids using the n-word in her lyrics.

After being asked what her mix is by a fan, the Chilombo songstress replied, “Whispers, cat hair, slauson asphalt and sand from venice beach.” Followed by, “I am less black that someone half black, but also less white that someone half white… and asian is the least thing i am. lol. So at this point, it’s whatever they want me to be.”
