People see my photos and think I labor over my image and I'm this cool, brooding artist. But I'm just having fun with it.
Music is my life, it is a reflection of what I go through.
People always accuse me of being motivational in a way, like it was a bad thing, but that's just how I was raised. My mom raised me in a positive environment, with lots of love in my heart, and that reflects in my music.
A dramatic thing, the first time you stand up to your dad.

I'm half Jewish, I'm half black, I look in-between. I dress funny. I play all these different styles of music on one record. It's like, What is he doing?
I'm more hungry now than I was 11 years ago. Which is great because I see a lot of artists that have been out for a long period of time. They get kind of fat.
My career has been a gradual climb. I think that's part of the reason why I've had longevity.
They think I'm being serious when actually I'm a very big clown. But you have to know me to see that. I'm constantly cracking up and cracking everybody else around me up.

My dream is to become a farmer. Just a Bohemian guy pulling up his own sweet potatoes for dinner.
You can be around 100 people and be completely alone. People don't realize what it's really like.
It's like a dream to come to Spain and stay for a couple of years and get somebody to teach me Spanish music.
I just need to know that I did the very best I could and that I was true to myself.
