“I just wanted to go ahead and let the world know that with the album cover art that the two Fs at the bottom of you know what are for Weezy F F. That was our way of letting the world know that we are a power couple. We got the motivation from the BlackPeopleMeet commercial.”

“I’ll be waitin’ in the bed butt-naked, Nick.”
