I feel like my peers now are artists like Madonna and the Stones, Michael Jackson and Prince. These are people who were able to take their careers beyond the normal here-today-gone-tomorrow life span.

Let me tell you something - compared to a TV-drama production schedule, touring is not strenuous.
And my new focus is in acting. That's where I'm putting the majority of my energy.
I try to do the right thing with money. Save a dollar here and there, clip some coupons. Buy ten gold chains instead of 20. Four summer homes instead of eight.
I am artistic so I reserve the right to change my mind at any point. I just like to do different things. What is more important than the name is that people know that I really like acting, I enjoy it and I want people to know that I am serious.
We're going to raise a lot of money for cancer awareness, give some to the American Cancer Society and hopefully make a big difference.
The person that made me want to make movies, and the reason I do films, is Bruce Lee. He was an incredible actor, and he had a lot of charisma. Handsome, action, you know, everything was there. I loved Bruce Lee.

Hip-hop can be limiting and I refuse to accept limits.
My radio's loud like a fire alarm:The floor vibrates, the walls cave in,The bass makes my eardrums seem thin.Def sounds in my ride, yes the front and back...You would think it was a party, not a Cadillac!
I've been training as an actor for six years. Nobody goes to acting school for six years. I mean, the college course is only four years! I absolutely trained.
My radio, believe me, I like it loud,I'm the man with a box that can rock the crowd.Walkin' down the street, to the hardcore beatWhile my JVC vibrates the concrete.
I think I'm the best, of course. How could I not?
