“At this point, I can finally say I’m an artist,” he said at the time. “Not just a rapper, because I’m performing on so many different levels at this point. Now people can say, ‘Baby’s an artist’. For people that have never heard of me, I’d tell ’em my music is as real as it gets, plain and simple.”
