Every time I watch this clip I shed tears, for 3 reasons tho... tears of pain, from seeing myself like this and remembering how I felt when my son and my family had to see me like this... tears of joy, when I look at this clip and think to myself damn I made it!! I finally made it!! I rose from this low point in life and now look what I became... and then tears of confusion, wondering all the time why GOD chose ME to give this gift to, to bless my life with success in the music business like this, gave me a second chance at life, and the responsibility to be an inspiration to people all across the world,... sometimes I cry on stages, like I did last night in Boston, because after all the wild shit I did and all the bad shit I did, Idk if I deserve this... like why am I still in god favor? Why are the people in these crowds singing my songs word for word and wearing merch and cheering so loudly for ME?? Why do I get this kinda love? It’s like I love being on that stage but I hate for people to see me, I hate this Bell’s palsy shit man, the irony... Idk if I’m built for all this shit
