"I have a son. When I set out on this journey, I said I would never give up because if I give up, what am I teaching my son? If I give up, what am I teaching those who look up to me? So, everything I do is for a generation coming behind me because if it were not for the generation before me, I wouldn't be standing before you. I am so honored because it's hard out here for a pimp."
