“I got this the first of the New Year. It was made by Eliantte, a jeweler from New York. He’s the best. Honestly, I didn’t want to have no regular Cuban chain, ’cause I didn’t want to do nothing regular. So, we kind of just brainstormed, about how I feel, I’m like, we need to put snakes coming through the cube. He’s like, ‘I can really do that if you want to do that.’ I’m like, “Yeah, do it.” He’s like, ‘All right. It’s gonna be crazy, I ain’t never did it, but we can do it.’ I’m like, ‘Do it, let’s do it.’ And it came out like crazy. Everybody likes the chain.”

“That’s one of my cars. It’s a 911 Turbo. My favorite car is my Corvette. I just bought it — and it’s fast.  I got a truck, a Hellcat too. I’m about to buy that Rolls Royce truck soon. They the big dog. You got to get one of them in life.”

“This is me and [Young] Thug onstage. He brought me on tour with him for his High Rollers tour. He like a real brother, he always try to look out, share with me the mistakes he made so I don’t make them. Stuff like that. With everything that’s coming, the blessings and the feedback of fans, to just still continue to work. Don’t let awards get the best of you. Just keep going, you never know how far you can go.”

“I got that hat for the tour I went on with Travis Scott. I got my own merch company. I sell shirts, hats, hoodie, socks.”
