To play your music in front of the fans that love it, it’s like the best feeling in the world.
I’m dead serious about my craft and just really serious about making music in itself. I take pride in making songs and albums where no two songs sound alike. That’s the challenge and that’s what it’s all about, to keep it original and fresh and funky.
My kids listen to everything because I listen to everything, so it’s not far-fetched to hear them playing Metallica and then playing A Tribe Called Quest or N.W.A.
I’m glad that’s one of the things I chose to do as a man – to be a father to my child.
I’m into creating something that I’ve never created before.
I’m just a product of my environment, and it comes out in the music.
One thing I like about Twitter is that you can hear it from the horse’s mouth.
The way to judge a new artist is by listening to their albums and gauging the progress that they make from the first record to the next one.
Anything that benefits the public and not just big banking, that’s what I’m with.
I listen to all types of music so I’m influenced by everything.
I think remixes give songs more life.
I’m glad I had kids young because we have a strong bond and listen to the same music.
I’m about making music and spending time with my family. I’ve been in the spotlight so long that I’m looking for something different.
I’m not pro-government at all, I’m pro-people.
My goal every time I make a record is just to make the funkiest, the best music I could possibly make, both lyrically, and music-wise.
