On Chris Lighty’s death: “It’s a huge adjustment. I honestly can’t wrap my head around the idea of him shooting himself. I don’t have all the information, so I don’t want to say anything other than what’s being said publicly. But I don’t believe that. Just because my personal interactions, he never gave indication that that was even possible.”
On Oprah: “It’s one of the those moments that I will remember as an accomplishment on my behalf because there was no compromise to get there.”
On Chief Keef: “I told him to be careful and be aware of people that are starting to become jealous of that energy.”
On “New Day”: “I had the record for like four months. Originally the record was recorded for Detox. [Alicia’s version] sounds similar, but Swizz reproduced the entire track. We were actually scheduled to shoot a video and then the Chris Lighty situation took place.”
