Personal quotes

Here are some of the quotes by the celebrity:

  • I get letters in here (New York City jail) from people with clothing lines, they told me when I come out they've got a bunch of clothes for me. Yesterday I got a letter from a movie director. He said he wanted to shoot a movie of my life.
  • I'm guilty of where I live. I was never part of no gang. That's just because of the neighborhood. You don't even have to be in the gang. You can probably only grow up in the community, you part of the gang already.
  • I'm innocent. I'll explain it to all of them. I'm just a young black kid coming from a nasty neighborhood. I made it out, and a lot of people don't want to see that.
