On Signing Chief Keef:

"I like young boy Chief. I think he's a great young talent. I sent my hand out to him. We'll see what happens."

On Letting Nicki Minaj Retire From Music:

"That's her choice, her decision. I don't think Nicki is ready to retire. She really just started. I don't see that in the near future for her at all right now."

On Drake's Next Album:

"Drake is one of the most talented people I've gotten to know in my life. You never know with Drizzy. Drizzy's such a special talent. You can expect him to be creative and do something that's never been done. I think Drake is the future of music."

On Lil Wayne Having 'Fell Off':

"We do music for people who appreciate it. That's all we can do. Keep working hard, keep grinding. Everybody is entitled to their opinion but we do what we do. We sell millions of records. Ain't nobody ever put up the numbers we put up. That's one to a million. That don't really matter matter."

On Mystikal Returning To Prison:

"Shit happens, bruh. All I can do and all we can do as a brand is just support him. When a nigga doing time, it's important  that families be there. That's when you see who means something to you in life, when you down. We gon' be there with him. We been there before. We know how that go. We do as much music as we can before he go, if he have to go, but besides that, when he come home, it's right back at it. The same day that concrete touch, the same day we putting out music."
