"Man...I just do what I feel. Music is real to me; its a release of all that's good bad ugly and everything else. I don't sit down with intentions on making this or that 'type' of song' I let my experiences and mood fuel where the beat takes me. People are filled with emotions and I'm not no different than any other person yamean. More days than not I'm smiling, I don't have beef everyday...I'm not mad everyday...so yea I'm not always going to be talking about that bullshit. If I feel like singin I'm gonna sing...If I feel like screamin on a nigga today then that's what it is." West Philthy
