See you at @rollingloud x @jonnyxrsvp
Has there been one record that you penned recently that resonates with you the most?
"Floating" f God Level. It’s like I’m walking on air or I’m walking on water. It’s like I’m the] Jesus Christ the projects.
I know you’ve got your family and course, your daughter. How have you been preparing them for your departure?
I’ve been in jail most my life. I had my daughter when I was seventeen. This generation is like the daddies that want to save the day, but the generation that we grew up in, none us had daddies. So, we’re going to make do what we can. I already got ten million streams f my independent catalogue, so they’re going to be set.
Once you get out, your legacy is going to be crazier than what it is right now, no?
Bigger than Michael Jackson. Up there with Bob Marley and shit, Melodically, lyrically and creatively, the way I move, the way I change things for my community, is what’s going to make people love me as a revolutionary. I ain’t sitting here trying to be a Black Panther, I ain’t sitting here trying to be nothing that was already out.
On Twitter, you spoke about how foul the legal system is. What do you think can be done differently?
This is not normal. This is a trap that they took over already and we’re way generations down the line. We’re not even supposed to be over here. They went and got us, and now they don’t want us over here. The legal system is fucked up.
Do you feel like they robbed you your success?
Yeah, they know what they’re doing. I feel like when I caught the case, they didn’t know I was a rapper. When they found out I was a rapper, they wanted to hurry up and make me take that deal.
From the tattoos, to the raps, to the interviews, what is the biggest misconception about you as a person?
Ain’t nothing wrong. If n----s know what’s up with me, they know. When people see me, they know this is the guy that’s made change and helped the kids. They know I got that Post The Report Card Challenge.
Real recognize real at the end the day. Sometimes, you can see a headline and say, “That’s not me. That’s not who I am.”
People already know they’re bullshit. People know they’re lying. Everybody already know me. Everybody know what’s up. I got this thing called the G-Hive, kind like how Beyonce got the Beyhive. When shit ain’t right, they’re the ones who handle that. They don’t really let people talk bad about me. They got something to tell anyone who says something.
Before you go in, right now, what would you want your fans to take away from you right now and how would you want to be remembered?
I ain’t never dropped no album as 03 Greedo. I only came out since I had this case. I could have been the n---a that could have bailed out and wanted to fuck bitches, but no, I wanted to grind. Six, seven tapes later and thirteen more done and shit, don’t let anybody stop what’s going on. I still got a mouth to feed. I knew I was going to do time. For two years, I knew. Instead sitting on my ass, I made videos and all these songs. Wherever you are, just do that shit. It ain’t ever over. Everybody’s like, “How are you so calm?” I ain’t calm, it just is what it is. What I’ma do, pull my hair out? It is what it is. I’m a gangster.
You don’t have time to be scared. You have people that need you at the end the day.
Ain’t shit to be scared . I’ve been to jail many times. I grew up homeless so that’s free room and board. I think God put me through so much shit that so I could be this spokesperson now.
What advice would you give to a kid right now who’s a fan yours?
Be a man early. I was forced to be a man at twelve years old. Be a man early. You got to be able to stand on your own, too. Nobody’s holding your hand. You can’t fold. You need to go extra hard.
