I want to spit with the best and only work with the best of the best. And the people that fuck with me. If I don’t fuck with you then I don’t want to do no song with you. If you don’t fuck with me I don’t wanna do no song with you. Fuck you. That’s how we rocking.”

“This is what I don’t understand,” he said. “If you come from nothing and you make some money, which is like you got like a 90% chance of not doing, if one person make it to that, how the fuck the cops in the neighborhood trying to bring that down? Picture me selling a drug. I bust power moves. We make million dollar moves man. I pay taxes. I pay for the cop taxes, for schools and shit like that. I donate. Leave the nigga alone that donates. You don’t fuck with a nigga that donate. I never knew of how the cops could try to bring a nigga down when you out here doing something. I got a two year-old fucking son. He don’t wanna see me in jail.”
