Stress is real, and you never know what a person is going through behind the camera.
I think swag is very important to rappers. It's the overall appearance and style of an artist - these blue shorts and this blue hat and this $80,000 chain, this jewelry and all these tattoos, that's swag.
It was, like, two mobile games I released. They did pretty well, and after I made those two games, I was like, 'Man, I want to make another game, but I want to make this game for PlayStation and Xbox and PC.' I was like, 'You know what? Forget making the video game for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. How about I make my own console?'
