You know what's funny
Its like when I be fuckin with somebody
Everybody felt like I owed them answers to everything
But it's cool
This is how MGK handles the situation
They be saying Kells why you leaving now?
You bouced and never came back around
Look I'm still in the city I just don't leave the house
What's this talk about you acting all crazy?
They say you getting Hollywood
Fuck them, pay me
You won't even collab with another artist?
Wrong, It's just half of these rappers out here retarded
Theres only 2 reasons why I wouldn't do a song
Either it isn't beneficial or their money isn't long
Damn it's like that?
Unfortunately it is
Cause no chedder equals out to no food for my kid
Hold up, you got a kid too? How old is you?
I'm 19 but I deal with grown man issues
Okay cool, at least we know you not no fool
But you look like a college boy why you not in school?
Cuz I was in the principals offices more than the class
Wouldn't write a letter of reccomendation for my ass
See most of the teachers hate me right along with the kids
Cuz my reputation outside of the campus was getting big (a million)
Ha, yeah it's like that
But I ain't done bro
Okay you're confusing me
I always see you in the hood
But you look like them white boys from Laguna beach
So what are you? A Thug or an Asher Roth?
I'm none of that, I'm the whole entire catalog
From front to back the perfect blend like camouflage
Because I'm still me, even when the camera's off
Well I been hearing about some things you false bragging where you from
So what city is it? Help me understand this son
Look I was born in H-town, raised in the middle east
Seen every part of the world from the ghetto to the beach
But unfortunately that was all before I turned 9
So the experience wasn't appreciated by my young mind
Yeah get to the point
Chill bro let me talk
Well explain the 2 area codes thats tatted on your arms
Okay my left one is for Denver and my right is for the Land
Better known as Cleveland Midwest is what I am
Next time you wanna question, understand this fam
I represent cuz those the cities that taught me to be a man
Okay, I guess I didn't see everything on the plate
Well next time you wanna question get your facts straight
I guess that was cool and all
I dig that
But you gonna have to change that homeboy
I got some more
Alright, come on bro
So what you got besides a name that makes you think you so cool?
I won first at the Apolo what more do I gotta prove?
The first rapper to do it
Plus on top of that I'm staring at my '09
Best live performance award plaque
Yeah, well how many fans you got?
I'm on every major blog with no album
Sure, but anyone with a deal gets that respect
Wrong. Cuz I did this without a major label check
You saying you not signed?
No, I had no help
I earned everything that I got then I signed myself
Damn, you must be ballin, where the chains and the whip?
I'm far from rich and the only jewels I cop's for my chick
What about your boys? How'd you get them all to be down?
How much you pay?
None dude, we from the same side of town
And if we all split up the chips and for the moment live good
But if not, we still fam like we back in the hood
Friends? I respect that. What about the haters?
Word is you got a couple cats jacking your flavor
Hell yeah, a couple people out to down my name
Turn on the radio the song's and the style's the same
Befriended me to stab me in the back, they lame
Should be ashamed, but all is well
It's just the rules of the game
Haha yeah wow its crazy
That definitely was crazy man
Appreciate you answering the questions though
You gotts tell 'em your name bro
Okay I got you bro
Let it be known
