Over 80 million records sold and I ain't got to do it with ten or eleven year olds.
Hip Hop quotes
Your dick on hard, from fuckin your road dogs, The hood you threw up with, niggaz you grew up with, Don't even respect your ass, That's why it's time for the doctor, to check your ass.
You can kiss my indecisive ass crack, maggots, and the cracker's ass, Little Cracker Jack, beat-making wackass backwards producers.
All I see is Slim, fuck all you fair-weather friends, all I need is him, fucking backstabbers, when the chips were down you just laughed at us, Now you 'bout to feel the fucking wrath of Aftermath, faggots.
Im just trying to be a creator in among all this shit thats going on. I just want to get my music out and make sure that its heard in the right way.
Im really protective of my family, myself and my image. Its one of the reasons for my longevity in the business. Im not a person that really gives a fuck about being on camera or people taking pictures of me. I like being to myself. I have my designated events, I do like to party and have fun but in controlled environments, like the room youre sitting in right now.
The record collection is gone now. I had a warehouse full of albums and I contemplated getting rid of it for at least two years before I did it. I wasnt really using it anymore. It was just sitting there as another bill for storage. 80,000 albums.
Its just first finding the right musicians that understand it and they have to be excited about what theyre doing. Some musicians want to sit there and play something they wrote to get money instead of getting the song done. So its about the musicians understanding and being able to do what theyre asked to do. Theres no big science behind that too.
Im about music. I dont know anything about fashion so I cant make clothes, sneakers, or anything like that. I know sound. Thats it. Most people that are making headphones probably arent involved in the actual creation of music. So we have an upper hand.
Kraftwerk had a really big inspiration on the beginning of hip-hop. My tastes change with the season. Right now its Kraftwerk. Ill see what happens this summer.
If you know about Dr Dre, these headphones werent coming out until they were perfect, or else we would have had Detox five years ago.
I feel like I was bred to do what I do. Ive been into music, and listening to music and critiquing it, my whole life.
My mom has pictures of me at four years old at the turntable, reaching up to play the records. I feel like I was bred to do what I do.
NWA has to be NWA. Eminem is Eminem. NWA is NWA. There's two different things there. For example, let's take the first track on Em's album, "I'll Kill You": that's custom made for him. It wouldn't work for Snoop. These two things don't mesh at all. Niggaz Wit' Attitudes could not have Eminem in the group. The Public would fucking lose it.
George Lucas definitely has a right to be trippin' on me because the sound at the beginning of my album does sound like his shit. Actually we got the idea from him. And it's like, any-fucking-body can hear that. So he definitely has a legitimate argument and I can't argue that. That's why I'm payin' him the money that he wants. Am I Player-Hatin' on Napster? Um, no. No. I would have no reason to even speak on Napster if they wasn't fuckin' with my music. I'm one of the few individuals in this business that owns his Masters. My Masters come back to me after a certain period of time. And this is something that my kids are gonna be able to eat on in the future, Period.. Napster is just a new high-tech way of Bootlegging, Period! That's all it is and fuck that! A lotta people involved with Napster are talking about music should be free. Well how the fuck are we supposed to make it? It costs to make it! Straight up, this is my job! I bet you there's nobody at Napster that's workin' for free
There is no format. There is no fucking meditation process. There is nothing that goes on except me going in the studio and touchin' those buttons. I'd have to say 90% of the time I don't know what the fuck I'ma do til I get there. It just happens. It's a God-given Gift that I have. It just happens, Man.
I just go in and do the best that I can at whatever I'm doin'. I custom make things for each artist that I'm workin' with. Wait a minute, let me rewind myself. What was the question? (I repeat the question) I don't even think about it like that when I go into the studio. I don't go in sayin', Yo, Hip Hop is in trouble. I need to do something. Dunt-da-da-dunn!!! Let me come save... I don't think about it like that. I just go in the studio and I just do my thing, Man! And I can't let nothin' come out of that studio that I had somethin' to do with that I don't really feel, it's Bangin' and it's different and it's fuckin' everything up that's out there, Period! Damn, I'm fuckin' up and haven't had a drink yet!
I have a duty to myself to do the best that I can do at anything that I'm doing. And right now Hip Hop is at the top of my list as far as things that I like to do. I would probably never stop doing Hip Hop. I'll probably be fuckin' 70 years old still tryin' to see whats happenin' out on the streets just to stay in touch and do Hip Hop records. That's just what I love doin'! But like I said, I definitely venture off into some other things if that answered your question.
Set It Off? My shit was Wack in that, Man! I don't feel like I'm a good Actor. I feel like I can do it and I think I'm getting better at it. I think I'm gonna try it next year. Me & Snoop are gonna try and do something. But the reason I haven't done it this far is because I don't think I'm that good at it. Straight up, I didn't think I was that good at it. Over this last year I've been doin' a lotta tests just fuckin' around at home. Practicin' my actin' and havin' people film me, gettin' a couple of my friends that are Actors; just actin' 'em out and what have you. I think I can pull it off now. So next year sometime you'll probably see me on that silver screen. Me & Snoop are plannin' to do a mixture of Car Wash and a Ghetto-ass Odd Couple. (I let out a good laugh at the thought of it) So that's what we gonna try to do.
I would love to have Scored Pulp Fiction or Scarface, or Movies of that nature. Cube was just talking to me. Actually he just handed me this script maybe an hour ago that we've been talking about throughout the Tour. He wants me to Score it and maybe put some music to a TV show he has coming out. So be careful what you wish for. I think that should be interesting.
