People know I work hard.
Entertainment is such a great job to have.
You rarely get money out of labels, except for when they open up a budget for a project. Other than that, it’s a do-or-die type thing.
The independent route was the best move for me. But I think I’ve maximized everything I could do independently. I’ve done everything out the mixtape market. I think getting the big machine behind you is the next stage when you’ve maximized the independent level.
My pop did a little time.
You need to be your own individual.
I wake up each and every day with a smile on my face knowing I get to do something musically.
I want to challenge myself, challenge my styles.
As I said, I spent most of my adult life thinking I didn’t have a vote, and therefore that what I thought didn’t matter.
I like for people to have fun and that comes out in the music.
Hip-hop deals with bragging and braggadocio, being boastful. It’s always been about who’s got the most money.
I enjoy being in control, having a lot of creative control.
To me, I’m the epitome of what a ghetto child is: I was raised by a single parent; I stayed in apartments my whole life; I don’t think I’ve ever cut the grass.
I just be comfortable in my own skin; I might wear anything.
I can say sincerely, don’t take your voice for granted. It is truly what makes us all equal.
