Throughout my career, I fed off the fuel of people not being able to understand me.
I don't even know how to speak up for myself, because I don't really have a father who would give me the confidence or advice.
The writing process, the way I go about it is I do whatever the beat feels like, whatever the beat is telling me to do. Usually when the beat comes on, I think of a hook or the subject I want to rap about almost instantly. Within four, eight bars of it playing I'm just like, 'Oh, OK. This is what I wanna do'.
I didn't have nothin' going for me... school, home... until I found something I loved, which was music, and that changed everything.
