I got my city right behind me. If I fall, they got me.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis || Can’t Hold Us feat. Ray Dalton [x]
"Being a rapper is one of the most narcissistic careers in the world. You are surrounded by yourself: interviews, Twitter, Facebook, Billboard charts, YouTube plays, shows, the crowds, awards etc. Fame suffocates the spirit and consumes you if you let it. You wake up thinking about you, and go to bed thinking about you. That’s not a good place to be…[That’s why I was] grateful for the opportunity to meet Sam and his parents today. Made me feel like a real person. Beyond the music and the accolades, at the core that is what I want out of this life. To feel. And Sam reminded me of that."

"Humility is placed at the forefront of what I do in my heart. And the minute that I lose that, all this could go away. The minute that you let your head get out of control, everything that you’ve worked for is lost."
