My mom was on drugs and I didn’t know my father so I felt like I had no family.

So the pirate shit comes form my lifestyle, not having no family and growing up in the street and working out how to survive.

That pirate shit is a lifestyle and to that I’m a knowledgeable person and I like to read and study, so it’s like my Ying and my Yang.

I mean I’m still a wild dude, and you can either meet Knowledge or you can meet the Pirate, you know?"
