I realize I will always be the poster child for police brutality, but I can try to use that as a positive force for healing and restraint.
People, I just want to say, can we all get along? Can we get along?
As far as having peace within myself, the one way I can do that is forgiving the people who have done wrong to me. It causes more stress to build up anger. Peace is more productive.
I'm a religious person. I remember my mom told me: 'Vengeance belongs to God. It's up to him to wreak vengeance.' It's hard for me to get to that point, but that's the work of God.
Waking up sober is a good day. I love being able to wake up and do positive things, to go to the gym.
As a black man, you run from the cops. It's different now, but back when I was coming up, you run.
We wouldn't be as far along as a country if we didn't take on some of Martin Luther King's ways that he instilled in us.
When I leave here, when my final day on this earth is up, I want to leave in peace. I want to have peace in my heart.
Nice guys just don't finish first in the music industry.
Can we all get along?
I don't see how you can grow as a world without being able to get along with people. So many people is hating out there and it's not making a difference.
What I've learned to do is arrest my addiction - arrest it myself, so I don't get arrested.
I had to learn to forgive. I couldn't sleep at night. I got ulcers. I had to let go, to let God deal with it. No one wants to be mad in their own house. I didn't want to be angry my whole life. It takes so much energy out of you to be mean.
I sometimes feel like I'm caught in a vise. Some people feel like I'm some kind of hero. Others hate me.
I know and value what it means to wake up and be alive and to share my story. I'm so blessed to be here and to be able to talk about it.
