Via National Post:
Q: How are you, where are you and how are you celebrating the release of your disc?
A: I’m in Reno, I’m high as hell and it feels awesome to have a CD out with Snoop Dogg.
Q: What’s a day in the life at this stage of your career?
A: We recorded last night until 6 a.m. then jumped on the bus and we were all asleep, now there’s some trees in my face — a big jar of it, actually. I was just told I had to do an interview.
Q: What did you learn from working with Snoop Dogg?
A: When Snoop’s first album came out, he was younger than me and for him to still be here and doing it says volumes. He hasn’t ever stopped working or become irrelevant and he’s gotten to that point because he never cuts corners. He’s in it for the long run, just like me.
Q: Black & Yellow was one of 2011’s biggest singles. What did the song mean to you?
A: Everything. It let people know who I am, where I’m from and got me nominated for two Grammys — those are things some artists wait their whole careers to do. Now I have more on the line and I’m busier, but I’m going to maintain that success, add to it and not let it change who I am.
