On being known as the "Thrift Shop" guy:
I went through a place of not being happy, getting put in a box of 'This is a novelty rap song,' and being like, 'What did I sign up for?' The legacy that I'm leaving on the world is more than just a song about second-hand clothes."
On being noticed by others:
"I think on the mainstream level, nobody knows what the f*** I am. Am I the DJ? Do I make the beats? Do I rap? Am I singing on tracks? I don't think a lot of people know except real fans who have been around."
