The Kanye West Shout Out
King L: “I don’t get into no Hollywood shit, G. That shit be blowing me when people recognize me. I really just want to chill with my people, but now people are starting to recognize me and want to come up and talk and shit.
"I’m just a cool dude—I don’t get into that miscellaneous shit. That Hollywood shit is for the birds. When you start focusing on that, you start losing touch with reality—it gets in the way of goals you’re trying to accomplish.
After the Kanye shout out, my cap level went up tremendously. I just hope to accomplish some of the things that he has—like maybe one day I’ll be on the cover of Complex—so my cap level skyrockets even higher.
“But yeah, after the Kanye shout out, my cap level went up tremendously. When a person that big shouts you out, the people have to respect you. I just hope to accomplish some of the shit that he has—like maybe one day I’ll be on the cover of Complex like he was—so my cap level skyrockets even higher.
“When I first heard Kanye had said my name on the ‘I Don’t Like (Remix),’ my dude Hustle told me, and I was like, ‘Get the fuck out of here.’ John Monopoly had heard it, but told Hustle not to tell me—John wanted it to be a surprise.
"When John told me, though, I finally believed everyone. I was off the shits at the time when I heard the record—I had just gotten out of the dentist. I was high as shit and tweaking. My phone was blowing up, my Twitter was going crazy.”
