On ‘Collect Calls’ I’m speaking from the standpoint of hearing my uncles or my homeboys, always trying to break through the line and get their mother or get their grandmother to take the block off the line. Always saying that it’ll be their last time going up in there.
So I’m speaking from that standpoint of what I know, being behind the walls. Experiences of my people coming up. Yeah I picked up [a few collect calls]. I got in trouble like a motherfucker too. [Laughs.]
