On dealing with depression he revealed

”I think it is something I started dealing with early, before I got into rap, well really into rap, first time I really  remember that type of sensation…was when I was like 16, 15 years old”

”I think what people don’t understand a lot times about things like depression and anxiety is that they think it just means you are sad or you are nervous…but really though it is like a brain chemistry thing and lot times it runs in the family”

On police brutality/ racial profiling, he said…

”We can’t act like cops aren’t not going to die as they keep killing us, you can’t act like your life is more important than my life, because in the eyes of the universe that is not true, to American laws that is true but right and wrong doesn’t side with you on that opinion”
