It'd be stupid for me to sit here and say that there aren't kids who took up to me, but my responsibility is not to them. I'm not a baby sitter.
 

My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him.
 

My only scheme was to be a rapper.
 

My thing is this; if I'm sick enough to think it, then I'm sick enough to say it.
 

Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you're always going to find a hip-hop tape; that's all I buy, that's all I live, that's all I listen to, that's all I love.
 

Say there's a white kid who lives in a nice home, goes to an all-white school, and is pretty much having everything handed to him on a platter - for him to pick up a rap tape is incredible to me, because what that's saying is that he's living a fantasy life of rebellion.
 

Sometimes I feel like rap music is almost the key to stopping racism.
 

Somewhere deep down there's a decent man in me, he just can't be found.
 

The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.
 

There was a while when I was feeling like, 'Damn, if I'd just been born black, I would not have to go through all this'.
 

These times are so hard, and they're getting even harder.
 

To the people I forgot, you weren't on my mind for some reason and you probably don't deserve any thanks anyway.
 

When you're a little kid, you don't see color, and the fact that my friends were black never crossed my mind. It never became an issue until I was a teenager and started trying to rap.
 

Yeah, I did see where the people dissing me were coming from. But, it's like, anything that happened in the past between black and white, I can't really speak on it, because I wasn't there. I don't feel like me being born the color I am makes me any less of a person.
