It's good to have critics because that's what motivates you and helps you take your game to another level, ... They talked about Michael Jordan and said he didn't have a jump shot. They say the same thing about me I can't throw the football and all that. Say whatever you want about me. It makes me strive harder.
I mean, I was just one of the ones who got exposed, and because of the position I was in, where I was in my life, it went mainstream.

Yeah, you got the family dog and the white picket fence, and you just think that's all there is. Some of us had to grow up in poverty-stricken urban neighborhoods, and we just had to adapt to our environment. I know that it's wrong. But people act like it's some crazy thing they never heard of. They don't know.
