“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it”s normal; we don”t care. We aren”t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as n*****.”
On Jay Z:
“No disrespect, because I”m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”
On his past:
“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don”t try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be. I got to the point where it”s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me I”ve taken my fair share of lashings.”
