I'm La Flame at all times. That, at times, can be bad, at times can be good.
Sometimes I might be sleepy, and sometimes I've literally been sleeping backstage, woken up, gone straight on stage or gone crazy. It's not like I psyche myself; I don't do any of that.
I don't get why radio shows allow artists to do shows without creative control, without any art direction at all. Instead of that, I get their press guys, their camera guys to be my backdrop of my show.
I think, with production, I pay very close attention. 'Cause that's my favorite thing in music. That's the whole drive. That's the reason.
I'm attached to the beat. The beat speaks words. I love music.
I feel like more artists like me should be on the radio. Everything is, like, so controlled by, like, super popular music. You know what I'm saying? Like, c'mon.
You've gotta motivate kids. They wanna grow up. They got problems. You've gotta give 'em that music to make 'em feel like they're OK, and it's only a couple of artists that do that.
I want first and foremost to help other artists, launch new names, to provide opportunities. I want to do for them what happened to me, but better.
I feel like Houston is one of the leading things in music culture. Everyone loves the Houston culture. It needs to have its own monument, its own moment for artists like me, artists like Beyonce who set it off.
I'm an artist. I produce, I direct, and all of that goes into the music.
Cudi should be a top tier artist... I think he fathered a lot of the style of music. He's a good influence and a good help.
I consider myself an artist, which is, like, the most played term, but I believe it.
Honestly, I really can't speak on others, but in a sense, I feel like every artist always has their problems with the industry because we all want to have our creative way.
I see hip-hop as going in a self-managing place. It's very culturally controlled and artist-controlled. It's not really based on a label anymore. Everything is pretty much in the control of the artist. Which is amazing.
I wouldn't make music with you if I didn't know you. If you're a good artist, and if you know it as well, I'm down.
My work ethic is crazy. I'm a producer, an artist, and a video director.
I felt like 'Owl Pharoah,' not everyone understood who I was as an artist.
I'm just here for good times, man. I want people to have the best time ever. Especially if they're around me.
I was born in Houston, Texas. I grew up in Houston, by Missouri City. It's, like, a suburb in the area; it's middle-class. But I used to stay with my grandma in the hood from ages one to six.
My mom worked for Apple, and my dad owned his own business.
A nerd can call another nerd a nerd.
Drake is an amazing person. Also, a magician. He's a big brother, super-talent; he's cool.
My whole story is straight mythical. It's tangible, but it's also what life could be.
Money is something that keeps you alive and healthy and just keeps you focused. It's the drive. It's the passion.
I was on mad platinum albums... I produced and wrote on them.
With albums like 'Rodeo,' 'Days Before Rodeo' and 'Owl Pharaoh,' I was really tuned into wanting to get people to understand my conscious and who I was mentally and who I am mentally.
Raging and having good feelings and having fun is something I plan on doing and spreading across the world. I just need air and a mic.
You can't buy vision, and you can't buy aesthetic.
I like how fashion is becoming more like music. It's more adaptive to young kids. It's more adaptive to a more on-the-go lifestyle. More street vibe. But I've always been into it.
In my whole career, all I wanted was acceptance from Kid Cudi. I don't care about nothing else! This dude saved my life.
