I’ve lived the African dream, now I’m trying to get to the American dream.”

I currently have a house in Atlanta, so when it comes to the American culture, I learned most of it in the South. So I think I relate better with Atlanta artistes, being around [Young] Thug and being around people. Like, I been knew Gunna even before either he or I popped off.”
