On The Notorious B.I.G.’s last day alive:

“He was supposed to go to London but he was like, ‘Yo I’ve never asked for anything, can we just all hang out together tonight and celebrate the album? I’ll go to London the next day'” He was on me and I was like, ‘No no no no no.’ Then finally I gave in, so he was like, ‘Whatever we do, we going to go into this club, and you ain’t going to leave my side tonight. None of that running.’ I was known for just running around the club and he was known for posting up with his crew. He liked dark liquor and smoking, I like champagne and just hanging out, meeting girls. He was like, ‘You’re gonna hang out with me tonight.’ That’s why there aren’t really a lot of pictures of me and Big before that, hanging out at places, because I was always so spastic, just running around the club. That was really the only night we did that, per his request.”

On his mother being a big influence:

“My mother is why I am, who I am today. People can say what they want to say, but I just represent being sucker free, working hard and being positive. I don’t hate on nobody, I’m not a negative individual. I just wake up and I go for mine and I try to work the hardest I can work. I could have gone a lot of different routes, but I decided to go the route of hard work.”

On the motivation to continue after all his success:

“The motivation is to be better. There’s been room for improvement for me as a recording artist even as a producer, as a man, as a mogul. It’s not even about greed or ‘when will he stop?’ because I’m just not going to. I’m not going to stop, probably ever. It’s a love; it’s not money because the money has been achieved.
