On remixing Adele’s “Hello ” and being a big fan of hers:
I love Adele. When I see her, I may kiss Adele. She speaks for so many people. When I hear her voice, I stop and make that face and say, “What the fuck, man?” I just gaze off into the sky for a second and think creatively. Even someone like myself, who’s not working toward being the most beautiful voice in the world, has to recognize it. I’ve got a beat ready for her if I ever run across her.
You know, I didn’t like it, but I’ve seen worse. I’m glad they kept it relatively smooth. As a fan, I always enjoyed beef — not the loss of B.I.G. and Tupac, but the competition.
If he was worried about DJ Khaled’s safety, when he got lost on his Jet Ski’s after visiting Ross’ house:
I can’t fucking believe that guy. I live on an island, and it’s difficult to find. So I’m sitting there with three or four girls, waiting for my food, and I hear one of the chicks say, “You’ve got company.” I’m like, “What the fuck?” Because my home is gated and shit. So I look up, and I see DJ Khaled waving his arms! I walked out there in disbelief — I had to snatch my ankle monitor out of the wall where it was charging — and I invited him in and had my chef make him some food. I said, “I know you’re hungry, come on.” Then I had some shit I had to go do right up the street. By the time I came back, they told me Khaled left. It was fucking dark, and he wasn’t answering my calls. He got lost out there for, like, three hours! I told him, “Man, you’re fucking crazy.”
If his old enemy 50 Cent making fun of his first-week album sales for this album bothers him:
At this point, my relationship with Curtis is really amusing, due to the fact that I’m the biggest L he ever took. I’m still enjoying life. My kids love me. I’m blessed. And when it comes to Curtis, it’s just unfortunate. I’m not happy that his boxing company went under. I’m not happy that his clothing company went under. I’m not happy his record label went under. I’m not happy that he went bankrupt. I’m not happy that he doesn’t have a relationship with his son. That’s not something to be happy about. But to see him parading around, still able to hold his head up every day, with all of that weighing on him — that makes me happy. I admire him for being able to hold his head up in a city that has revoked all of his passes. We’ve had a quite enjoyable past, and I still smile when I see him.
