I"ve disliked that since I was young."

He went on, "People told me, "You"re only this age and you"ve only rapped for 2 years." When I heard those sorts of things, I felt like they don"t give what I say credit. In the midst of all that, there was Skull hyung. He said to me, "No matter what anyone says to you, just do you. If you have confidence, everyone will acknowledge you later." I"ve held that close to my heart ever since I heard it
