“After the show, I was able to look him in his eyes and tell him [Donavon Fitzpatrick]: ‘No matter how many people were out in the crowd tonight, no matter how many people are standing to my left or my right on stage, it was you.'”

Weezy was also asked when is his Tha Carter VI album coming out to which he answered: “I don’t do the dates, because I record so much music. Mack and them… they just know, they just gon’ pick and let me know ‘oh this your new album'”. Mack Maine then appeared and said: “when it’s ready”.

“Politics-wise, we didn’t get to put the album out on a major label because there was too much politics at the time. You had Def Jam, Universal, Cash Money, and Diplomats, you know what I’m saying.”
