1). How would you spend a million dollars if you had it?
If I had a million dollars , 1st I would put aside my kids College Tuition, pay off all debts , build a basketball clinic , give money for a cure of cancer , help people start new lives.

2). What was the craziest thing to happen in your life? 
Craziest thing that ever had was being approached with my family for an autograph from a commercial I did for Reebok , that was weird since I was not a House Hold name at the time , had just moved back to LA

3). What kind of message is in your music? Why or for what reason do you write music?
The music I write comes from from day to day experiences , emotion and creativity ,there is a message behind every hard lyric , I do not glorify my neighborhoods downfalls, I try to paint a picture of what I did , saw , where I'm from , the hood , poverty , drugs , crime , things that keep some neighborhoods the same without change , its just some straight forward hip hop , no acts , nothing fake about me , I write music to release my anger instead acting on it like I did when I was younger , and hope I can reach somebody either on a street level or on a creative standpoint

4). What would you do if the world was going to end in 3 hours? 
Be with my family

5). If you were a professional sportsman, what sport would you play?  
I would play basketball since I was a High ranked point guard in Philadelphia at Frankford High , and still this day will give somebody a cross to remember , the kind where you got to throw your sneaks on the telephone wires.
