He said (via HHDX),Â "I mean, I don't really celebrate things like this - I just thank God for it and keep moving.Â I was already grinding and working, and doing my thing. Just in general...this is just adding more feel to the feeling I already had."
He continued to mention his source of inspiration, "My inspiration comes from life," he said. "Everything in life. Because all I rap about is real life. The real things that's going on in my life. I don't ever call any artists' names, because - for what? When you hear something, you're gonna know where it came from."
