I need drama in my life to keep making music.
I love the attention but I don't like too much of it.
Well, I'm working all the time to stay out of trouble!
The details surrounding both my marriage and subsequent filing for divorce are private, and I had hoped to keep them that way for the sake of my family.
Say there's a white kid who lives in a nice home, goes to an all-white school, and is pretty much having everything handed to him on a platter - for him to pick up a rap tape is incredible to me, because what that's saying is that he's living a fantasy life of rebellion.
A lot of truth is said in jest.
I'd go to, like, six different schools in one year. We were on welfare, and my mom never ever worked.
Sometimes I feel like rap music is almost the key to stopping racism.
Before I was famous, when I was just working in Gilbert's Lodge, everything was moving in slow motion.
My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him.

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
The only way I'd be caught without makeup is if my radio fell in the bathtub while I was taking a bath and electrocuted me and I was in between makeup at home. I hope my husband would slap a little lipstick on me before he took me to the morgue.
You must have love as the core it takes courage to be willing to constantly tell the truth to each other and risk letting the relationship go.
My mom is not trying to live vicariously through me.
