"Most people wouldn't believe it, but I take my time to decide which way I want to go with my styles. When I released my first album, [Can I Borrow A Dollar?], in 1992, I was rockin' Air Force 1s, hoodies and Carhartts. I loved the hoodies. There's just something about them that's fresh. Still, I always wanted something unique and original. If everyone was wearing [black], I wanted the different color. I never want to look like anybody else.”

"Wearing a tie is the norm for me now. It don't matter if nobody else is doing it. Who cares? I don't have to follow what a hip-hop nigga suppose to look like. I like ties with designs. I've had some solid-color ties that stand out, too.” "A friend said I'm dressing more conservative, but I think it's classy hip-hop. I was like, ‘This is where I am.' I don't think it's conservative. I just feel more grounded and in tune with myself.”
