‘It seems like ignorant America celebrates a person that says “yeah I am a drug dealer, I am bringing the drugs into the hood”. The reason hip hop exists is because it started out with great motives, once all the great intentions left the music became polluted, it became disrespectful it became immature.’
“I need just a little help Jay, I got a little trouble. A guy like yourself, perhaps you can help me solve em . I only want to know why this happens all the time
(What?) Everywhere I go, I begin to rap and rhyme . I rock the in the day (yeah yourself rock em every night) . I rock em when I left so def I understood something was erroneous (okay). I rhyme when I’m sleeping, I rhyme when I am conscious.”
I just came in the bank (you said a rhyme?) A rhyme so comical. A song about the line so long they all gave me their money. That’s why nine came to you personally, you are my friend (yes that’s true). Said maybe Jay knows what to say, he will tell me what to do..”
If you’re making a record on the b**** or the h*es, there is got to be a record about your aunt who worked all of the days of her life to send all her kids to school,’
‘When we made the record for adidas we did not make it to get an endorsement, it was not about company. We chose positivity and made it gangsta, we never understood we’d do something historic.’
