I had a lot of respect for Biggie, and it was just a weird, kinda difficult thing. When I'm doing touchy interviews like that, I just try to be fair to both parties. I am going to do as much as I can do, because I hate to do anything and not give my all. After you date a player or two it's nice to just chill with a guy that can keep it basic.
