“The hardest thing for – not only an artist but for anybody to do is look themselves in the mirror and acknowledge, you know, their own flaws and fears and imperfections and put them out there in the open for people to relate to it.”

“I learned, when I look in the mirror and tell my story, that I should be myself and not peep whatever everybody is doing.”

“People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing – continue to rock it – because obviously, God wants you here.”

“People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing – continue to rock it – because obviously, God wants you here.”

“At first, I was scared to show fear because you can never be sure how people will perceive you. But I dared myself to do that, to stand out. Now I’ll talk about being beaten up or robbed or making a stupid decision because of a girl or whatever.”

“I got a greater purpose. God put something in my heart to get across, and that’s what I’m going to focus on, using my voice as an instrument and doing what needs to be done.”
