Quotes

#Quote
1'Time Rolls On' is my most political piece so far. It's not on my album because people didn't support it.
2My flow follows sometimes what's going on in the hip-hop industry even though I'm speaking Jamaican patois.
3I would like to work with anyone in the business who wants to give respect back to the Jamaican vibe.
4My lyrics come from my experiences growing up in life, trying to find out and express who I am. That's basically it. I'm not trying to be a prophet or anything like that. I'm just reflecting on life.
5I don't want to do something unproductive with my time, so I decided to do something musical. So it felt good to say, 'Yeah, I'm producing.' It gave me a fresh vibe - inspiring in a different way.
6By the time my first album was out, I had been out in Jamaica three or four years, but I had hits out at that time that were bona fide hits.
7On 'Sufferer,' I'm talking about the younger generation that has no other option for success than to find a gun somewhere. I try to appeal to them: 'I know you a sufferer, but it doesn't mean that you can't or shouldn't expect any better.' It's a lot different than from what I usually say, like, 'Get busy, shake that thing.'
8With everything that's thrown at you, whether it be problems at home, problems at work - whatever - basically, if you remain positive, you can see your way out of that.
9Most people are fortunate enough to stay two, three years in this game. I've been in it for seven years, and I feel like now, I'm just beginning.
10Sometimes you have to take a break from being a crazy kid. You can't be doing that all the time. Sometimes you just have to pay respect to your own simple-ness.
11I remember being a bathtub singer. You know, the type that sings and everybody's like, 'Shut up.'
12Every time you think a negative thought, it's one step in the wrong direction, for me.
13I'm still working on my career, still trying to learn from other artistes and develop my skills and my style.
14I love the idea of the street vibe, having folks together, out in the street at midnight.
15I do feel I have a responsibility to the youths. For real.
16Music tells you about the artist and what they were thinking about at the time, because the person has to think about it to sing it.
17I like music when it makes you feel.
18Dancehall is just like hip-hop in that it doesn't always talk about bling; it talks about conscious issues.
19Please remember we all come from the same one and we will all return to that one, so there is no reason for fighting.
20The world still hasn't seen the best of Sean Paul.
21It's about ladies, as usual. I'm telling the ladies I got the right temperature to keep them warm.
22I think kids should have a mentor and a role model, but that they shouldn't take one person's opinion to be what we call final assessment or judgment about how life is supposed to be.
23Music is your own talent and is an important tool. Even if you don't want to be a role model, get ready to be in the public eye. Energy is there, you just have to use it.
24I know some very political people who rap, and they say very political things and they'll never get a deal.
25'Rent-a-tile' means when you go to a dance hall, some people take the middle of the dance floor and do their thing.
26I'm a big hip-hop fan since being a kid. It was the first music that spoke to me and made me feel like, 'Yeah.'
27I feel like I have things to say. And that's what I'm looking forward to.
28I've been approached by many different people, but I don't really want to be known as a collaboration dude.
29I see dancehall reggae and hip-hop as fused together, When I was a kid, they were the two kinds of music that spoke to me and said 'Move!'
