Gashed a large chunk from a leg. Almost 70 years later, there's still a scar." ~ Phillip Adams

I appreciate all of them cause both types of fans push me to record all the time, both push me to give my best when I do a show. Both push me to be the best rapper and not just do it as a hobby, but do it as a job and take it seriously and put pride in it." ~ Gucci Mane
