I feel like Sony appreciates good music from a talented artist.
I just find myself happy with the simple things. Appreciating the blessings God gave me.
I can reach people the average person can't reach because I'm as grounded as I am.
To me, it isn't tight sweaters. That's not what rap is. That's not hip-hop at all. Every phase went through changing up their dress styles and all that, but since Run DMC came out, it's been baggy jeans.
Columbia tried to put me behind other groups, so I didn't wanna wait, they let me out of the contract and I'm glad they did.
I'm not going to disrespect you, don't disrespect me.
I don't like anything about Drake.
I used to do the beat box. A friend of mine, he was the rapper and after, we'd be doing a block party or something or a house party, and he's gettin' all the attention and I'd end up with a handful of spit, you know, from doing the beats.
I've done gospel songs on every album.
I'm glad that young black people are successful with the music. I'm not a hater.
I don't walk around big headed. I'm not a superstar.
Men, we don't get much, as far as holidays go - Father's Day.
I think I'm gonna wear Timberlands until I die, man. They may not be the hottest thing out, but Timbs keep reinventing themselves.
An important and fundamental premise of the American judicial system is the presumption of innocence, that is until proven guilty.
The truth doesn't change. It was the same when Moses got the Ten Commandments as it is today. That's the thing about the truth. That's the thing about real. It doesn't change and it doesn't have to change. Now you can put it in a different book, but it's still real. It's still the truth.
I'm not the mixtape guy who's gonna put out a new one every month. I'm gonna allow my albums to marinate and resonate and whatever type of 'ates' they can do. I'm gonna let my music grow on them.
I'm used to driving fast; I'm a New Yorker.
My relationship with God has gotten so much stronger. He's always had his hand on me. He always guided me. I didn't always go where he wanted me to go. But He always had me. Now that I'm actually listening and being obedient, life is so much better.
You can't speak for the people unless you're able to walk amongst the people. And how many of these rappers out here actually hang out with regular people?
I like L.A., I like the fans, I like to come out here to work.
