I'm far from being god, but I work god damn hard.
Work - Motivational
I don't think you should ever isolate yourself, especially when
you're recording. You know, making an album and doing music is
current events. It's really a run-down of where you are in life
at that exact moment. It's my Kodak.
If I was to stop making music tomorrow doesn't mean suddenly there
is this gap. You don't get elected. The people decide where you
are. Whether I'm here or not, if they want you to be at the top
then the people will move me out the way.
I sell ice in the winter, I sell fire in hell. I am a hustler,
baby, I'll sell water to a well.
I never lost sense of who I was.. not for a day, not before I
had a record deal, and certainly not after. I believe that's why
I'm sitting right here with you today. It didn't change it one
I'm not really the type of person who can sit and talk about how
they feel. You know, I'm bad at that and so is my whole family.
We were raised to hold a lot in, so for me making music is like
I was forced to be an artist and a CEO from the beginning, so
I was forced to be like a businessman because when I was trying
to get a record deal, it was so hard to get a record deal on my
own that it was either give up or create my own company.
