On never picturing himself being this successful:
"It’s a curse. I ask god to take this away from me all the time. I do not like being an artist."
On his past antics:
"I always knew who I was and I always ran from my true purpose…I know what my job is. And I always ran from it. I am now fulfilling my purpose now. I’m starting to fulfill my purpose."
On Kendrick Lamar saying he's the King of New York on "Control":
"I salute him, cause I like what he do. He super with it. If he were ever to diss me I’d be like 'haha' and I’d stay in my lane cause that ain’t my lane."
On Donald Trump:
"He’ll be mesmerized when I hug him. The approach should be love and not no ‘F him.’ Cause I like where he get to talking that gangsta shit, he but funny to me and a lot of stuff he don’t know what he be talking about but he be funny. I like him, you heard me?... I’m glad I can’t vote."
