Quote of the Day
When I'm not longer rapping, I want to open up an ice cream parlor and call myself Scoop Dogg.

When I came to New York and I opened the window of the thirty-fifth-floor apartment, there's light pollution and fog, and I couldn't see my star. So I drew it on my wrist with a pen, but it kept washing away. Then I went to a tattoo parlor on Second Avenue and had it done.
