Best childhood memory: I have a lot of em but one. I'm gonna give you one. It was being a MC, a rapper and people liking it; that was a really good memory.

 

Food: Rice, all kinds of rice.

 

Drink: I don't buy alcohol, but I do taste it when I'm around people who has it. My favorite drink would probably be rum or something like that.

 

Color: Blue

 

Thing to do: I need to think bloody hard on that. Well, I can just answer you just wildly, like that, like anything, my favorite thing to do. I need to be on Maury or Jerry Springer or something because I'm, I'm, like, a sex addict.

 

Place in the city: That's easy because where I grew up at 21st and Master, like I wander around there so much. The neighborhood has changed so much, and I still wander around. People don't even know me.

 

Cartoon character: Ok, well, it's been a while since I watched cartoons, though. Uhh, Speed Racer, yea, Speed Racer is my boy..

 

If you could live anywhere in the world where would you go and why? I would live in Africa because everything I hear about Africa, it doesn't seem right if I'm not there. I learn better by hands on; that's why, I learn better, and I think it's pretty.

 

What inspires you? The Creator of all of these things, the materials, the Creator of everything that exists of heavens, Earth and everything that exists, that's what I'm inspired by, and I don't need church or any sacred place to go to. That thing I could study that out of books quietly, I don't need music; music diverts me from all of that, when it comes to me and the Creator.

 

What are some of your goals? Long-term and/or short-term. So you see, I have children and my goals are to make sure that I develop a really close relationship with them always and to make sure that if they need me for anything, I want to someday have a house that if they need to come to it for any reasons, even when they're off on their own, like some of them are. But if they ever need to come back or need a place to stay, I want to make sure they have that. I want to buy them a house.

 

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? I would be a silverback gorilla because they're strong and they can have any lady that they like in their tribe.

 

Tell me about the craziest dream you have ever had. I don't dream much at all but I remember when I was a young boy, I would dream about flying, I am flying without an airplane, just me, I could just run down the street and take off.

 

What is one thing that you want people to know about you? I like to jog, it's a good way to keep yourself in good shape.
