Personal Quote:

Rap music is and will be no better than the society from that which it springs. If America is greedy, so is it's music. If America is violent, so will be it's music. America is getting the rap music it deserves right now, when the smoke clears, people will realize that this is exciting, wildly inventive, astonishly beautiful music. - The Seattle Times, October 2000
