Though Taylor has slowly been on the rise over the years, her viral (and enviable) feature performance in his video "Fade," (which recently awarded Best Dance at the Soul Train Awards) was all his idea and really put the battery in her back for her most recent achievements.
While at the BET Awards, Teyana caught up with the Associated Press and had a few words about her mentor.
"Take however much time you need, you know. Time heals all," she began.
"He’s a workaholic," she continued. "He worked his ass off. And if he needs to get his mind right, then I think everybody should respect that and let him do that.”
Has she been in touch with Kanye?
"I sure have," she confirmed. "That's what family is supposed to do. He definitely knows that his friends and his family's in his corner for sure."
With some of the negative attention this story's been getting, that's refreshing to hear.
