1. I think I'm a whole lot to handle. I definitely am, on every aspect. I'm the video director. I'm the graphics designer. I'm the rapper. I'm the visionary. I'm the music producer. I'm the executive producer. I'm just going to end it off to be poetic: I'm the future of music.

  2. People say I've got a bad reputation. I think I've got the best reputation in the building.

So simply, the accident gave me the opportunity to do what I really wanted to do.

  8. Yeah, I think that I have like, faltered, you know, as a human. My message isn’t perfectly defined. I have, as a human being, fallen to peer pressure.

  9. Whenever y'all are in the store from and y'all are trying to decide whether or not to get something, think if you saw me wear it before or not, and if I have, then it's okay.
