I’ve been knowing her for a long time. We went to the BET Awards. What’s the big deal? We did music together. We got one coming out together.”

On not speaking with Lil Wayne: “One time, maybe, when all that other shit was poppin’, we went about a year [without talking]. But you know the weirdest…We see each other every day. Me and Wayne, we work right next to each other.”
On reconciling with Wayne: “That’s my son. At some point, we gonna get together. It ain’t like we enemies…in no kind of way. He’s what I came in the game with and what I wanna leave in the game with.”
On retirement: “I don’t feel done. I’m passionate about what I do. I love what I do…I don’t got nothing better I want to do. I like embracing these youngsters and helping them.”
On Rich Gang: “I have the biggest machine. When you have Wayne, Drake, and Nicki, that come from the biggest machine in the world. So I have these young talents. I want to give them a chance to be as big as them or if they could be, possibly be bigger.”
On Charlamagne Tha God beef: “I wanted to go personally and see this man. I saw him and knew a few places he was at, but I didn’t want to take it to that. I wanted to go see him and let him know, face-to-face, homie, stop playing with me.”
