Feeling the spirit of his late mother:
I’m not like a … over religious…I’m not at the church every Sunday … But what I am, I’m true to how I was raised. My mom beat God in my head. What I am, I’m true to my mom….It’s amazing…I feel like I’m coveted, for a lack of a better word. I feel like there’s something on my back…
His mother supporting him financially, at the beginning of his career:
You got a year. you have one year to prove to me this is what you wanna do and you can support yourself…
Leaving Philadelphia to pursue his dreams in Los Angeles:
Without a plan, I just picked..I said, In LA is where the opportunities are.
Blowing and losing money early in his career:
You don’t know where it goes. You’re young. You know nothing about taxes. You’e taking care of people. Giving money out. You have no idea.
If he feels successful:
I would be a fool to say I don’t…But there’s more. There’s so much more. I can’t sit across from you and not want what you have. It’s reachable.
Relationship with his Ex-Wife Torrei Hart
Me and my ex wife are great now….

Now in my relationship …I take the relationship element serious. I was young. I was 22 when we first got married….As a man, you get curious. I got curious. I don’t shy away from that.
Plans for marriage with girlfriend, Eniko:
Five years now. It does matter. There was def a chip on my shoulder bc of the way my first one ended. But there’s a certain magical thing that comes with marriage. I will say, that with my lady now, I have something special….It’s definitely thought. Marriage definitely a thought.
