"I hate to sound cliche but I feel like it's what our music has been missing," the D.C. emcee noted. "That's how I feel. I feel like there's always been such a connotation around the word emotional.

I just think a lot of people are trying their hardest to not be emotional. It's swag, whatever that means anymore."

I'm getting better at [sleeping]. That's what Ross tells me every other day. Every other day he texts me, 'Make sure you get some rest.'"
