“I feel Ludacris and I have a lot of things in common. Both of us are very entertaining, both wanna use a lot of comedy in our verses, both put a lot of passion in everything we drop, and both are good storytellers.”
“The way I think I should stay out of trouble is by stayin’ busy. With idle time comes a lot of biz, so the more my work load is heavy, I’ll have no time to get into any trouble or makin’ dis tracks or get into conversation about any other rappers.”
