I waited 47-years to find the love of my life, the woman of my dreams to [make me] do this, Campbell told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive statement. I have four brothers and I am the fifth and all of them have been married for 25 years. Thats the kind of family I come from. This is the best thing that happened to me in my entire life and this weekend has been the best weekend of my entire life. I have never been married before and this is my first and my last and I will not do it again, because I am going to be with this woman for the rest of my life.
