“I felt like there was a dark cloud over my head for a long time. So when I was rapping about death, I was just rhyming about things that were imminent. Stuff that was happening around that time, it was just a dark time for me. And then you know… things started to pick up for me. A lot of the beefs started to die down I started to make things up with the wife.

The kind of dark place that I was in, I think lengthy periods of time in that kinda place, you know, I’d end up in one of two places. For me to make it out of that and not have done serious jail time and to still be living is a blessing.”
