How is it in there?
It’s survival, survival. Survival of the fittest.

Has it been hard on you?
Not that hard. I get a lot of love in here.

People in there know who you are and know “Hot N*gga”?
Yeah, everybody. Every time I walk the halls, I see people and they yell out “Ah Ah!” or something.

There are so many rumors, like, that you got stabbed.
It’s nothing but rumors, man. I’m good. Everybody knows I’m good. I’m chilling. We over here — we over here thugging it out, man. [Laughs.]

What are you planning to do when you get out?
Write some platinum songs. [Laughs.] Finish up this deal I got with Epic.

Do you have a message for your fans?
Yeah. Keep your head up. Everybody goes through tough times and good times. You know what, tough times don’t last forever. I say, God makes his toughest battles for his strongest soldiers.
