EXCERPTS..

…on Love

“You get your best work when you talk about what’s near and dear to your heart. Love has always been my kryptonite…”

“The word love sounds a little cliche and corny when you’re talking about doing it for an album – but if you look at love it’s like the most dangerous, most spiritual, most happy, provocative, sexual, passionate, ill, gangster thing that there is.”

“Love could give you life or love could kill you – so went into what it’s like, no matter how tough a facade we try to put up. Last Train To Paris is about finding love, losing love and trying to get it back again.”

…on Jay Electronica

“I definitely felt a way about [Jay Electronica signing to Roc Nation] because that’s my friend. I was without a doubt hust looking at the situation selfishly, I wanted to rock with my friend, but at the same time I support my friend on what’s best for his career – and Jay-Z is also one of my best friends in the game.”

“I feel like Jay is one of those special artists that don’t come around often and I just wanted to work with him. I was a little bit of a sore loser and at the same time just being a little bit sensitive and emotional because that’s my friend. But once we talked about it I understand where he was coming from and that’s the realness of our friendship.”

…on G. Dep

“G. Dep is probably one of the nicest artists that I ever worked with…. Maybe something was troubling his soul.. ’cause he was real quiet and things like that, but he’s the type of guy that wouldn’t hurt a fly. I don’t know what happened in that instance… he did the right thing and manned up to it, but my prayers go out to him…

“G. Dep was definitely one of my favourite artists that I signed to Bad Boy.”
