Scotty Sussman, or better known as Sussi, is a New York club kid who’s giving the city’s nightlife a run for its money. We had a little chat with That Girl Sussi and had her create a New York summer love Freekin’ Friday Mixtape especially for you. Now start your weekend off right and find out all about SUSSI!
Are you originally from New York City?
Everyone in New York chose to be here. I wanted to be here. I showed up and turned the party, if you can’t do the same you shouldn’t be here.
How did you develop your performance style?
Once you marinate in your chosen family and learn from people who haven chosen the same life path as you, there is a rebirth that you don’t even realize, it just happens. The best part is that you don’t even recognize the change because it was meant to happen, and it feels so good you didn’t even realize you had changed until you’re set free. That’s how you know it’s the right choice.

My last name is Sussman, I took of the man because I didn’t need it anymore and added an I because I thought it was cuter
