I have to keep going for my fans and keep doing music and movie to provide for them [my family]. But it’s just like man, once that happens it makes you question a lot of things. Everybody gotta go one day; I just look at it like I just want to make him [my brother] proud.”

Everybody needs love; everybody needs that support in their corner. She’s definitely a pillar of strength in my corner. I don’t need negativity around me. With all the stuff that’s going on with me as being Soulja Boy and my personal life, and in the world in general, the whole world needs love.”
