On past promiscuity:
“There’s just a time where it was like, just getting pussy. Where I was in that sort of ‘I’m young, I’m going to disconnect from my emotions and just do what everyone else tells me I should do and just a be a rapper and have my fun.’ And for me as a person, it just doesn’t work. The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s the realest moment of your life. If I don’t want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there’s something wrong.”
On the new generation of rappers:
“Rap now is just being young an fly and having your shit together. The mood of rap has changed.”
On the relationship with his father:
“Me and my dad are friends. We’re cool. I’ll never be disappointed again, because I don’t expect ianything anymore from him. I just let him exist, and that’s how we get along. We laugh. We have drinks together. But I spent too many nights looking by the window, seeing if the car was going to pull up. And the car never came.”
