have to talk some bullsh*t, you can talk what you go through."
"As much as people
want to hear you talk some funny sh*t and floss and front, they want to know
what you go through and know that you're human," Millz said.
"They want to feel
like you're on the same level as them. I try to put a lot of reality into my
songs, and with this album I want people to understand that I can spit and I
do the battles and freestyles and have fun, but I take my music very seriously."
