If you could collaborate with anybody, who would you want to collaborate with?
Because a lot of people I want to collaborate with, I worked with. Snoop Dogg was one of my favorites and I worked with Snoop.
You and T.I. are cool.
He just got out of prison. Do you have any advice for him or have you spoken to him?
Not yet. I will though.
What are you going to say to him?
Stuff he already knows. I’m always encouraging. He’s not a person who hasn’t been in the industry, a person that wasn’t already a big superstar, so his transition is going to be easier than the average man just getting out of prison. First and foremost, his family, kids, getting back to them, his personal strength, and then we get to the business.
The great thing about it is that he has a lot of opportunity and that’s what life is about – having opportunity. The average man in the street doesn’t live to his potential, because he doesn’t have the opportunity. The average dude in the street may have talent, may have potential, but it’s never realized because the opportunity, those doors, or to know the right person ... So T.I.? He good. Come out in Maybachs. It’s all good.
