On why he's venturing into designing products
“[People] classify my motivational speeches as rants and things like that: Why is he saying that? Why is he doing that? Well, I’ve reached that point that my Truman Show boat has hit the painting. And I’ve got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling, as a creative person, as a celebrity."
On his trend-setting
“No one thinks about the names I got called for wearing tight jeans... I brought 10 years of product that has added to humanity."
On his recent epic rant about Pusha T's influence
"I have to remind Pusha T that he’s Pusha T. Because the radio, if they’re not playing a song of his that has a R&B hook on it or works at a certain level of trap tempo or plays at Club Liv, it’s like we forget about that Clipse album that meant everything.”
On rappers singing
"People used to use the term 'R&B nigga,' but then it was 'rappers,' but then rappers didn't wanna be the R&B niggas. Now the rappers are R&B niggas. The rap is the new radio! Like, where's the culture at?!"
On his trend-setting (again)
"Brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi and they said no. How many motherfuckas you done seen in a leather jogging pant?!"
On hip-hop's cultural dominance
"Rap the new rock and roll. We culture. Rap is the new rock and roll! We the rock stars! We the new rock stars and I'm the biggest of all of them."
