I used to be focused on being the dopest rapper in the game, and then once that became what I was, I wanted something different, and I wanted to become the best businessman in the game. I wanted to learn how to master the business like I mastered the rap.
A lot of the stuff I’ve accumulated over the last few years of touring I thought was really interesting. Like sounds, sound bites, and beats even, but they weren’t good dance beats they weren’t ones anyone would want to rap over or anything.
Rhyme patterns are nothing without meanings to the words. A lot of rappers can do those flows, but the raps aren’t really about anything – which is cool sometimes, but to have the flow and the message is one of my favorite things.
