"Look, I’m a fan of hip hop. I’m not like a casual fan of hip hop, I’m not a fan of hip hop depending on what’s trendy, I really truly love hip hop. There’s enough talented people in hip hop so that you can always find something new and you can always find something hot, I’m not one of these hip hop heads spends his time complaining about the state of the music business because there’s so much good shit you can find. And guess what, if I can’t find it, I’ll just make the shit."
