I think what I came from and what I saw molded me into a certain person. Nothing was ever wrapped or a silver spoon, so I don't think I would know how to live and I don't think I'd want to live if it wasn't a grind
Fatherhood is the best thing that ever happened to me
I'm a role player, a journeyman. I know who I am.
