God gave you them shoes to fit you, so put them on and wear them. Be yourself man, be proud of who you are. Even if it sounds corny, don’t let no one tell you, you ain’t beautiful.

We’ll walk this road together, through the storm. Whatever weather, cold or warm.

I have the right to remain violente. Everything I say can and will be used against you.

If you have enemies, good that means you stood up for something.

Ultimately, who you choose to be in a relationship with and what you do in your bedroom is your business.

Anybody with a sense of humor is going to put on my album and laugh from beginning to end.

It feels good to have your work respected again.

Sometimes I feel like rap music is almost the key to stopping racism.

I need drama in my life to keep making music.

The details surrounding both my marriage and subsequent filing for divorce are private, and I had hoped to keep them that way for the sake of my family.

A lot of truth is said in jest.

Everybody has goals, aspirations or whatever, and everybody has been at a point in their life where nobody believed in them.

The emotions in a song - the anger, aggression - have got to be legitimate.

I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.

My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him. .
