I feel like everything I do in the hip-hop world has an influence. People don’t really notice what I did until somebody else does it. As far as hip-hop goes, I want to continue to make good music, and good art. I don’t really follow the state of hip-hop.
I like that I’m not typical. I like that I’m called ‘no-genre hip-hop.’
Dr. Dre is the most influential artist and producer in hip-hop history.
I’m a big fan of hip-hop, so it reflects in my approach.
I was born in Hip Hop. That’s all I ever needed.
This is the thing about hip-hop music and where people get it most misconstrued: It’s all hip-hop. You can’t say that just what I do is hip-hop, because hip-hop is all energies. James Brown can get on the track and mumble all day. But guess what? You felt his soul on those records.
I love hip-hop. I have gone through many difference phases in my love affair with hip-hop.
