Growing Up In Houston

"I could vividly remember everything [about] my childhood.

 

I had the same mind frame since I was five years old. I have the same thought pattern, same everything.

 

Growing up, I was the same way I am right now. Always on the next adventure. Trying to make something day by day.

Houston is real. It’s an island almost because the shit that goes on there might not even reach Louisiana or Dallas. It might just hit right there and not even get to the outside world. It’s like a whole 'nother world. That’s the only other state I have ever been to where it's like that. It’s really kind of closed in, closed-minded. Whatever is going on right there, that’s how people judge or standardize you. Like, 'Okay, this is what’s going on here. How do you fit in with these regulations?' You know what I mean? There is so many people there too.

I grew up there, but I grew up in multiple cities too. I know a lot of people say, 'Oh, are you from  Houston?' I don’t even say anything about Houston. I’m not saying anything good or anything bad. I can’t say I’ll represent the average Houston person or something like that. I just do whatever I do. If someone is my fan, they don’t care where I’m from. You understand who I am or you are trying to. Don’t judge your fanmanship upon me based if I am from Houston or not. You are not going to be my fan then. My career or the things I do isn’t based on the fact that, 'Oh, I am from Houston. This is how…' Nah. Don’t even affiliate me with anything involving or representing a territory."
