Before we find world peace, we gotta find peace in the war on the streets.
I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.
I swear, if they hadn't tried to ruin me, I never would have ended up being a rapper. I probably would have been a preacher or something.

If you walked by a street and you was walking on the concrete and you saw a rose growing from the concrete, even if it had messed up petals and it was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose grow through concrete. So why is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of the dirtiest circumstance and he can talk and he can sit across the room and make you cry, make you laugh, all you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems and how I am leaning crooked to the side, you can't even see that I've come up from out of that

The reason why I could get into acting was because it takes nothing to get out of who I am and go into somebody else.
You know it's funny when it rains it pours They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor.
I want to grow. I want to be better. You grow. We all grow. We're made to grow. You either evolve or you disappear.
