I’ve done a song with almost everybody in the game.
– Two Chainz
You know, my uncle wore a lot of jewelry, a lot of gold chains.
I enjoy being in control, having a lot of creative control.
My pop did a little time.
Hip-hop deals with bragging and braggadocio, being boastful. It’s always been about who’s got the most money.
In my 8th grade yearbook picture I had on 2 chains.
Entertainment is such a great job to have.
I wake up each and every day with a smile on my face knowing I get to do something musically.
You need to be your own individual.
You rarely get money out of labels, except for when they open up a budget for a project. Other than that, it’s a do-or-die type thing.
I just be comfortable in my own skin; I might wear anything.
I don’t have any reasons to be disrespectful or throw anybody under the bus.
I want to be a successful landlord. I like real estate.
My whole story is just about me having a second chance.
I like for people to have fun and that comes out in the music.
As I said, I spent most of my adult life thinking I didn’t have a vote, and therefore that what I thought didn’t matter.
To me, I’m the epitome of what a ghetto child is: I was raised by a single parent; I stayed in apartments my whole life; I don’t think I’ve ever cut the grass.
I don’t care what anybody else is wearing. I feel like they’re all waiting to see what I have on. If you really want to know the truth, that’s what I think. They’re waiting to see what I’mma do next.
I had incorrectly, for all of my adult life until 2008, believed the biggest voting myth that exists – that ex-felons cannot vote.
I can say sincerely, don’t take your voice for granted. It is truly what makes us all equal.
I encourage everyone to pay attention to the issues that matter to you, from jobs and the economy, to education and our schools, to criminal justice reform. Whatever it is that you care about, make sure you use your voice.
The independent route was the best move for me. But I think I’ve maximized everything I could do independently. I’ve done everything out the mixtape market. I think getting the big machine behind you is the next stage when you’ve maximized the independent level.
Ludacris is a very smart individual. He’s about his business. Everything is business with him. So I learned a lot about making deals from him.
I want to challenge myself, challenge my styles.
People know I work hard.
