I'm not a hater. I've expressed this before.

I'm thankful to God that my life changed, but I'm also still on my grind.

To be selling out shows and these kids who don't speak English singing along every word? It's wild.

People who couldn't walk, they'd come in wheelchairs, and he'd make them walk. It's just the power of God. It wasn't my dad; it's what God had instructed my dad to do.

The stars played out the way they were supposed to play out, and I'm in the position I'm supposed to be in.

I believe later in life I'm gonna change my name when I start making the right music.

I don't write anything down - it comes from my head and my soul and my heart and my pain. That allows me to make the best music I can make.

I'm like one of those dudes who organically have talent.

I'm not a singer. I'm not an R&B singer. I'm an artist.

Subconciously, the things you listen to and you believe in, those things are going to come out, you know what I mean? I think you take that and make it your sound; that's what I do when I'm putting together genres of music.

It doesn't take long to make catchy songs. That's not my problem.

I don't develop anything. I don't practice, I don't rehearse. I just go out there, and it's just amazing and unpredictable and spontaneous every single time. It's the most cultivating incredible performance that you can go and see live for the amount of money that you can see it for.

Everyone is friends with each other, and you have to like what's hot. You have to do all these things as if there's no real feelings. As if you can't dislike something any more. We all just have to be buddy-buddy.

I'm getting money over here. I'm good, I'm young, I'm finally in a position to feed my family; please don't take that away from me.

God put me on this earth to bring souls back to the Kingdom of God. You don't need to pray ten times a day - you just need hope. My music is going to stop war; it's the healing music. I see myself in Brazil, in Syria, in Darfur, and places where they really need hope.

A lot of times, people won't be 100 percent real with their story, and I wanted to give people the drawn-out experience of the perseverance and the struggle that it took to get here.

Me personally, I don't think I'm even hot enough to be getting dissed.

One of my favorite reggae songs is Wayne Wonder's 'No Letting Go.' And Sizzla 'Give Me A Try.' That's one of my favorite songs as well.

I definitely want to work with Kanye, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande - all the big people.

Every time I do something in life, I try to outdo myself.

People live their lives through melodies. If you can't sing, then music is worthless.

I always try to show there's a way for the kids that feel like they're lowlives. In anything you want, you can be the greatest at it, even without school, if you want. Know your route.

I'm definitely more of a rockstar than anything.

I do a lot of writing. People don't actually know how much writing really I do.

I'm a fan of LeBron James. I'm not really a team fan; I'm just a fan of one player.

I don't have no personal problems with nobody.

If you try to be better every day, more miracles happen in your life.

That's why, to this day, K.I.S.S. can sell out wherever they go... because they sell tickets, and they have that core fan base. You may not hear K.I.S.S. on the radio with a new single today. And they can still sell out anywhere.

The reason why I called it 'I Told You' is because I wanted to show people that I have been doubted, and I have been in the face of adversity. Coming out of that situation, this is my 'I told you' moment.

Hip-hop is a contact sport.

Everything that comes out of Canada musically, I support. I support Toronto 100% because I'm on the side of the music.

Swavey, it puts more than one genre of music together. That's the approach I have with all music I do.

I know why I'm here. I know why I was placed in music, and it's not by coincidence.

I'm here to be the greatest.

I don't have beef with nobody... You know when it's beef, because then we just start playing scoreboard, and nobody wants to play scoreboard.

The way that I learned to be confident was I would ride the back of the city bus and sing very low.

Singing is one of the most important components to me. That's kinda how it all started.

It's not the fact that your single can sell. It's the fact that you can sell hard tickets. People will spend money to see you.

Usher is definitely somebody I came up listening to.

I love 50 Cent. I know it sounds weird 'cause a lot of kids might not say that right now, but I definitely want to work with 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Coldplay: I want to work with different artists that are going to push my music to a new level. Not just in urban music.

When I get to a certain level, I'll start going by Daystar.

I have a lot of fans, but a lot of people don't know who I am.

I have a lot of money, but I still feel broke. When I say I feel broke, I don't mean broke in a financial sense, but I still feel like that kid from the gutter who's still trying to get it, even though I'm at the place I want to be.

I like the music from Drake. I like the music from PARTY. I like music from The Weeknd, Justin Bieber.

You're gonna know, if I have beef with somebody, then one of us is just falling out.

I was being very bad because I didn't know how to express myself. Music gave me an outlet to express myself and channel that anger.

Swavey is a musical genre that I came up with to describe artists who are too talented to stay in a box with their music.

There's a different energy at one of my shows than anybody else's.

I can look at you and say, 'I'm gonna be the biggest artist in the world' because, at the end of the day, it's about the trust I have in God. He's already shown me that I'm gonna fulfil my destiny.
