” I follow politics in a big way, and always have since I was a kid. I’ve got opinions, but they’re opinions on both sides – not just anti-Republican, which is a real popular thing for a rap artist to do. If you dis Republicans, nobody will get mad. I think the two-party system sucks. It’s absolutely ignorant. “


” In hip-hop, what you have is you have a lot of formulaic-type bands or rappers that come up. They saw something on the radio, and they want to mimic that formula. And that’s just boring. I don’t wanna record something just to make money, I want to record something to enjoy it and have fun because I’m a music lover. “


” I think what’s beautiful when you’re looking at artists like Macklemore and you’re looking at artists like Ayron Jones, they’re proud of Seattle and they’re bringing it back. Seattle’s a real music town. When you act ashamed of that, you should be pushed outta the game as far as I’m concerned. “


” Do I do bar mitzvahs? No. You know, you’ve gotta draw a line somewhere. “


” Bottom line: Black men like curves. When they’re crooning to women about how beautiful they are in an R&B song, the ladies you see in the video don’t reflect what those guys like. “


” When I did ‘Baby Got Back,’ that was just a reflection of the African-American community. We’ve always liked curves, and a lot of people misunderstood it because let’s face it: 20 years prior to ‘Baby Got Back,’ the only images you saw of a black woman on television were she was probably 300 pounds and cleaning the house with a rag on her head. “


” A lot of people have said ‘people should see you work in the studio,’ because a lot of people don’t realize I’m an actual engineer. I don’t walk in and have some guy grab the board. I have my own studio and soldered every wire in the studio. “


” Inventors often don’t know how to pitch their ideas. So many people in Silicon Valley want to hear you say ‘disruptive,’ and tote a ‘platform.’ They repeat buzzwords over and over, and I think it intimidates a real inventor. “


” Look at Macklemore! Perfect comparison, we’re two artists from the same city who both had meteoric rises at different periods. I probably sold more albums, because in that era you couldn’t steal them, you had to go to a record store to buy them. But Macklemore had more power. “


” I’ll tell you who doesn’t get enough credit, Soulja Boy. He was the first one to do something, post it, yank it down, and sell more records because of it. “
