It seems like that was based on a true story Is that true? – Yes, but it's crazy that people like that song It do relate to a lot of people, it's very personal You feel me? It's talking about– I'm getting very deep – Is it difficult to deal with the success and the people that are surrounding you? – Not really, because I don't surround myself with negativity

So, I surround myself around two or three people and if they're not working If you're not working, if you're not with me, you're against me – What do you have to

say to the people that used to doubt you? Now look at you now – "How you doin?" "I'm here" (laughing) "How you doing?" That's why I never doubt people, so many people come to me like, "Oh, let me rap for you
