Greatest Achievement 

  • “I think my crowning achievement is just getting to the point where I can go to sleep at night and think number 1: I’m proud of what I’ve done, number 2: I’m excited for what’s to come. It’s not necessarily one moment. I’ve had great moments. I mean, when my first placement ever was on a record that was number one on the billboard that week (Young Jeezy)”.
  • “Every time I get shouted out by Chuck D. That’s a dope moment.”
