I really had to show them that I am good at this. I have a lot of friends in the industry and I feel like, unity will make us become stronger.
Shout out to these new artists, they are going crazy. They are innovative. They are very smart young bright artists coming out of this country. All of them come here, we hang out. I tell them my two cents”.
