"I want to convey a positive message. Be real with yourself. If you really want to be a rapper or musician then work hard at it. But, hip-hop is not for the squeamish, fake, or faint of heart. Go all out or don't go at all, but be safe. I've worked hard to get where I am and I'm still not too far, but I'll be damned if I lose my grip, game, chain, or life over any type of stupid shit. Yall can save it! Know Jesus, Know peace...NO Jesus, NO peace. I can't allow myself to be misled by the media, the masses, or our leaders and neither should you. Has our sense of religion and humanity been lost? It isn't looking so good from here. We're building more prisons than schools, carelessly making worldwide enemies, and polluting every aspect of our environment. I want people to start being more aware of these things".
