“I just had to make a decision,” he said. “It’s going to be about what I see going on and how I can contribute and let people understand it’s bigger than us. For all the things you see, that King Von thing really touched me. I know [Lil] Durk well and it was surreal to get that call. Them kids. It ain’t gotta be that way. It was a lot of that.

It’s like a catch-22 because you have some people like, I don’t know what to tell you, I’m rich, I’m grown and I wanna see all of y’all live to be in a position like myself. It was real, bro. We could have walked away and it could have been all bad.”
