Via Seattle Times:
On Smoking Weed:
"People can have their opinion, and I have been labeled as something," he says. "But it's not a problem. My message is way beyond smoking weed. That's just what I do. I'm about people embracing who they are, whatever they do and whoever they are. Fully embrace that."
On Rolling Papers sounding like a Nelly project:
"It's the melodic sense, and the songwriting," he says. "I could relate to it. It's something only a few artists can do."
On "Black and Yellow"
"I knew 'Black and Yellow' would be a great introduction to the album, but I didn't know it would blow up and be worldwide," he says. "It feels great, but no one can expect that. You just hope for it. "The pressure came after I was done recording," he says. "When it first came out, it was a little nerve-racking. But people understood it and got it for what it was."
