I'm just going to do me; I'm not trying to do the Eminem thing, the D12 thing or the 50 thing.
I was about 11 when my mother brought me this karaoke machine and I was really into it back then, but about 4 or 5 years ago is when I started printing up my own music, going to the studio and doing my own thing.
But working with Dre, I grew up with his music, so I'm still like more a fan.
At the time I wasn't really familiar with Caucasians and he got me up out of that 'cause they regular people just like everybody else.
My mother, she smiles when I come around now. My daughter's eatin' decent meals and she's in private school. She's 4 years old. She started school. It's a beautiful thing.
I think I learned the most from Eminem because I spent the most time with him in the studio. Going to L.A. with Dre was a learning experience, just seeing how the dude works and being up-close and personal with a dude whose music I appreciated growing up.
But since I am in the music industry, I don't want anyone to download music, not on September 9th.
I think it need realness, you should speak on thing that you know about, that you being from, that you experienced or that you been around, you know. I think you need a good hook, good beats and good lyrics.
Working with 50 Cent was great, you know what Im saying? It was just great to work with 50 Cent.
7 Mile is like an Ave. Back in the days it was poppin' in the summer time.
Downloading songs is not good.
I get the music, I get the beats. And I go to the studios and write the lyrics.

I don't actually sit down and write, but I just have a lot of different ideas about films and making movies.
Eminem is more like a friend. And I'm also a fan on Eminem.
I would say old school cats like Redman and Wu-tang. My style is my style, those are just cats that I liked.
I want to get off with the screenwriting.
I would love to get with somebody who knows the fundamentals of making the movie, then get my money up and start getting into that.
I just don't want to be rapping forever. I love it, but sometimes you got goals for yourself.
Where's Eminem, when is Em coming out, Em this, Em that, 50 this, 50 that... What about Obie?
Well, Eminem, you know, I know him longer. Ive been signed to his label since 2001 and hes a good friend.
I just do what I'm here for and that's to make that music.
I don't want to be an actor or nothing but if I have to, I'll act if it's the right thing.
