Even if you're frustrated, how do you express yourself? There's no subculture like back in the day...
I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border, I got visas in my name
I already feel that I am making a political statement by sticking around in music, when I am doing it so differently to everyone else.
If right now, culture's so divisive, it just leaves these millions of people like me out.
When I first came out, I was a film student and my mom sewed clothes. I was already doing a million things then, whatever it took to survive. If I had to braid someone's hair to get one pound for my lunch money, that's what I did. But I did it in the most creative way possible.
My statements aren't incomplete, they're just in-progress. It's a debate and a discussion.
I felt pissed off because I realized that you have to teach people in a clichéd way how to be happy-and happiness has become too one thing in American media. Achieving happiness is not really about having a flat stomach and the best car.
Predominantly in the West, if you can only have creative voices that are either black or white, I'm going to say whatever the f - k I want, because no one's going before you, and if no one's coming after you, I'm just going to be the freakiest of all freaks!
Confidence takes constant nurturing, like a bed, it must be remade every day.
Here we are at the edge of the world, the very edge of Western civilization, and all of us are so desperate to feel something, anything, that we keep falling into each other and f*****g our way toward the end of days.
Rage and grief are savage companions, but despair is the final undoing.
We know that those huge U.S. brands do have political sway.
Besides, isn't it more exciting when you don't have permission?
Just make music; don't talk about politics.
I'm still working out my opinions - it's always a question mark. I leave loads of space open, and people don't like that.
Everything I think seems to be controversial, so I feel like I need to just go away for a second and put it all down on paper until the storm passes.
Nike is the uniform for kids all over the world, and African design has been killed by Nike. Africans no longer want to wear their own designs.
I feel like I'm living in the dead weeds of hip-hop. I live in the graveyard of what went wrong with hip-hop.
Everyone has that moment where they just rebel.
I don't have a community like a black community to belong to [with] a musical platform that's been built for years and years and years, or the film-making culture, and I don't have the white one to belong to.
I am the bridge between the East and the West. I don't want to abandon one for the other.
Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?

I feel like a mirror reflecting back everyones perception of me.
I think when something becomes a comfortable genre, it's against what street art stood for in the beginning - breaking out of genres and taking art out of galleries. Now street art is in the gallery, and it's all made up into a nice, packaged concept.
