On Selena: “I think with that relationship…I put so much of myself on the line with her, because I was so distant with everyone else. So it’s like, you have the world who’s loving you but it’s not like they know my heart — they don’t know me. So when I found that love I was just like, ‘Woah, I want to hold on to this.’ And I just put everything into it and in reality there’s just no holding back. You’re just like, ‘This love feels so good.’”
On Scooter: “Scooter is probably one of the smartest people that I have ever met. Very, very, very strategic. Always on. Always thinking of more things to do and more things to accomplish. He keeps me driven, for sure. Because the artist always wants to chill. Like, ‘I made my money. I just want to chill’. But he figures out ways for me to get excited about what I want.”
On the small town he grew up in: “It’s a pretty dope place, actually. But I can’t say I miss it much just because I don’t feel like I belong there. Everyone has a routine and does the same thing every day, goes to the same bar and sees the same people. I just can’t do that. My imagination and my creativity runs too wild.”
