My momma need a crib, son needs some Jordan's. This some bull shit, cause I cant afford them.
Let me get up out of here before I, hurt somebody for I have to hurt somebody.
I am a studio musician. You get me in the studio I can play an accordion. 4 bars and loop it back. Percussion is my main field.
When I first heard hip-hop I thought it was rubbish because I didn't understand the concept of people talking over music.
Me and my older brother had our own crib in New Jersey. We had the car, driving around with no license.
They are mad traditional. The thing was at the time I was living in Jersey they were in Atlanta. In Africa they make you go on your own at an early age like around 14 or 15.
Yeah, you'd catch me wearing suits the whole time. Just not when I'm in my artist mode. Probably when I'm in my executive mode, coming out of a building or something, you'd catch me in a suit.
I've got a habit of writing about everything I go through.
If it comes, it comes, but its not like a main focus. If you go looking for something youare never gone find what you are looking for. If its meant or you itas gonna find you.

Growing up, I was always surrounded by musicians. After I got into that trouble, got locked up and when I got out I couldn't work a regular 9 to 5 like everybody else because of being locked up. The only jobs available were minimum wage. With today's economy, it's hard to survive on minimum wage, so I had to find another way to keep a lifestyle and live day to day, so I realized I was going to be an artist and give it a shot.
I think Born This Way is the kind of record that if you are really paying attention you will get the full depth of GaGa as a songwriter. Sometimes, the creative image hides the element of her lyrical content. That's why she wanted to give people a better idea of what she was saying outside of her image when she dropped those lyrics.
The cops play my song 'Locked Up' in their cars when they pick kids up and are taking them to jail. The police told me that the song is the police department's anthem. It doesn't get realer than that.
I love Phil Collins. 'In The Air Tonight' is an incredible song. I hope to work with Phil. He's got an amazing vocal tone. His vocal tone makes me cry.
GaGa says a lot of stuff in her records. But I know these parents and critics are not really listening to her lyrics. I know that for a fact. She's singing about a lot of adult subject matter. She's not just making dance records. Unfortunately, people pay more attention to what she is wearing.
As a kid, growin' up, I can't front, it was hard. I was just coming in from Africa. I was mad black. Dark skin wasn't in style. My accent was crazy. I was getting teased and fighting, but you know, kids are gonna be kids anyway. But they didn't give me the impression that I didn't get along with them. I ended up making crazy friends once they got to know me. I just think it's a lack of understanding. People stereotype you before they get to know you as a person.
All Im doing at the end of the day is listening to the tracks Gaga has written and approving then for her album. She has producers that she works with outside of myself and they are coming up with some incredible records. But the beauty of it is she knows exactly what she wants. So it just makes it easier for me.
The language barrier was the toughest transition when coming to the US. Learning to speak English. Nobody in the U.S. really speaks French. Well, not in New Jersey!
