On his relationship with his son, Xavier
“We’ve not interacted with each other for so long. Why? What about the first 14 years when I broke my back -- I’m not even talking about providing -- but just to have a relationship with you... I would make up things just to make time with you, yet still we’d have no interaction.”
On the comfort of being in jail
"I enjoyed it. I got three meals a day, clothes...”
On not being the best father
“I didn’t know not one nigga with a father. I did the best I could, man. I was loving. You always knew I loved you. I didn’t know what the fuck I was doing, but I tried. I gave it a genuine, genuine effort... I know I’m not the best father, but damn, I tried. I really, sincerely tried. I tried, man. I’m sorry. I tried.”
On his suicidal thoughts while on drugs
"I felt like I would lose my mind or do something I really regret because of the paranoia. You hear things louder, think people are scheming. That's what scared me more than dying. It's a lonely feeling, and I thought about blowing my head off a few times. Only thing that stopped me was, I had children."
