On His First Recorded Rap Over Usher's "Yeah" Remix:
"I had wrote a lot of raps, but that was the first beat that I ever recorded on - I think it was just the easiest beat for me to find at the time, it was probably a popular song. I was just like 'perfect, let's do it'. Ebo was on the hook, too - he did the hook for me. So ratchet... it was just terrible."
On Losing His Virginity At Disneyland:
"I lost my virginity when I was probably fifteen... in Pleasure Island, ironically. I was at a concert at the House of Blues... I was watching a show, it was a metal show. I think it was a Norma Jean show."
On Meeting Birdman:
"Birdman found us on his own - he reached out to DJ Nasty to make the connection."
"I'd consider music the medium that I'm allowed to live my life through... there's a lot more to life than music, for sure - but it's brought me a lot of purpose and is really something to focus my energy on. It's just something I like doing. There's a lot of fulfillment in creating stuff... it's super important to me."
