There's been people who've rapped and produced - like Kanye - but I don't feel like on the rapping side there's ever been a producer who can rap as good as I think I can rap.
In hip-hop, there's not a lot of love. There's not a lot of love being spread. It's always like 'I'm stuntin' on you raps, or I'm better than you raps.' It's not a lot of 'Yo man, I idolize you raps.'
My parents were divorced by the time I was even conscious - like, I don't remember them ever being together.
The thing about being an artist today is you get to develop right in front of people's eyes before you even put out an album.
