Read some excerpts from the interview below, and head here to read the full interview.
“I was just trying to make it bigger than the original one, because the original one was bigâ€¦it really making my name a nationwide name. It was my first mixtape as a signed artist, and it kind of like stamped me. This mixtape I just tried to go a little bit harder, pick some better beats and bring some more energy into it to make it bigger than the last one.”
On what being a part of MMG means to him:
“It taught me a lot; it gave me a lot of help and plays a big part in my career right now.Â [Rick] RossÂ helped me take my career to another level. I always had a buzz in my city, but Ross helped me get noticed nationwide and then worldwide. Working withÂ Wale, Rick Ross,Â Stalley, and all of those guys just takes a little bit of weight off my shoulders.”
On signing with Roc Nation Management:
“Yeah, thatâ€™s the new deal I put together. Me coming up in this rap game, I was always an underground artist coming up by myself and making all of the moves by myself. And my manager â€“ heâ€™s just like me, weâ€™ve been coming up in the streets by ourselves. So we just decided to partner up with Roc Nation and take things to another level.”
