He was mad at me and then I ain’t realized it but I realize it now because I understand Cancers more. He was like, ‘Yo, I always show you love. I love you, I fuck with you, I’ve been shouting you out in all the interviews. But you don’t ever be showing me no love.’ So, in my mind, I’m like, ‘You buggin’. I always show you love on all my shits’, ’cause I was with him all the time. When he got signed, I was in Def Jam walking around Universal with him. I was with him and I always mention that in my interviews. I understand how people are now and he’s like, ‘I go above and beyond, like not normal.’ And then I realized, but I realized that before he died too. He was like a real loving demon.”
