"I'd rather piss a bunch of people off and make myself happy than make everyone else happy and be pissed off inside. I'm not a politician. I'm a musician. I'm an artist. At any given time, I'm gonna do what I wanna do when I wanna do it, and people can have their reasons why they don't like something. But if they open their mind like, Wow, when I was 3 years old, did I have a problem with music that wasn't rap? Or did I just like it? Did I have a problem with a song by Boy George? Did I even know if Boy George is gay or not, or do I just like his song? But in hip hop, you say, Man, I think this dude is gay, so I'm not gonna like his song. People always don't like something for some toe of stupid reason. I don't have to listen to rap. I am rap. I AM RAP! I am what people rap about. I actually rap for 30,000 people a night. I am a walking Hypebeast. I am like, Hypebeast, the guy. I'm actually the human being version of a brand. I'm like Nike, the human being."
