Here’s what the 32-year-old rapper shared with the mag here:
On rapping: “When I first started doing it, you only did it to be the best— not to have a hot song or popularity or for Instagram or Twitter. I’m one of the last of a dying breed…the ones who are only about the music. You have to want to be unforgettable. The only other people who I can think of like that are Kanye [West] and Beyoncé.”
On heeding the call: “I was always ready for the call. That’s the best way to explain it. Wayne’s always ready. When it’s my turn, I make way more than the most of it. If you’re ready when they call you, and you make the most of your time, then they’ll never stop calling you.”
On weed: “I don’t know how it works, but I know that I need weed…extra when I’m creating. It helps in a major way.”
