“This is legend,” said Teyana Taylor. “Don’t ever disrespect the legends—period.” That’s a good rule of thumb when speaking with the singer, actress, dancer, choreographer, fashion & fitness icon, entrepreneur, G.O.O.D. Music affiliate, and star of VH1’s ‘Teyana & Iman.’ Ms. Taylor pulled up at MASS APPEAL HQ in a snowstorm rocking a very rare Junior M.A.F.I.A. T-shirt. The conversation—captured in this instant classic episode of Open Space—was befitting of a legend. Find out how she felt the first time she met Yeezy, why her new album is “Ralph Lauren Kanye,” how she convinced JAY-Z she was a superstar, why she can die happy now that Janet Jackson chose her for #WCW, how she first met Iman, and whether the Harlem native prefers A$AP or Dipset.
