I have to go with Jay-Z, to tell you the truth, because it’s not like this is only for black people. Everybody needs to get that taste of how big the business is. Even white guys like Snoop got that taste on their tongues. We need to learn that we can’t just be just black, we need to also have some love for each other. You have to have respect for everybody.

I love Breaking Bad, but I have to say The Shield, because that’s my favorite show of all time. You have to watch that show to see just how bad some guys are. That show really made you understand just what real men are like, you just had to see it.
I know you worked your way up the list of people that have helped you grow as a rapper. Why do you think that is?
It has to do with the fact that I was doing my best work when I was in high school because that’s where people were coming through the system to get their career started off. It was pretty hard for me to get to that place myself because it
