”Lemmie [my manager] was how I got connected with YG and Mustard. It was when YG and Mustard were starting to rise. Lemmie knew I could rap, he knew I was hard. But I didn’t work as hard [as he wanted].”
RJ later added:
”There would be days when I wouldn’t rap, and he would hit me on the phone like, “Man, you ain’t in the studio?” So we would go to his homie’s house, all the way in Corona, an hour away, to record. He just stayed on my head. He wasn’t my manager, he was just the homie.”
