“She handed it to me. I was in my hotel room on tour and …she called me and was like, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna be in this relationship no more. I’m liking somebody else. That was my first love and my first heartbreak,” the Chi-town MC dished though noting that him and Erykah are currently good friends. 

“That taught me a lot of things, and when it happened I kinda really got into myself and really learned about myself and I was able to move on, and now me and E is real cool.”
