“I felt like in order to really create hiphop, you have to live in hiphop. I felt like I couldn’t do that anymore. I had done so much bad “in the name of hiphop” that I blamed hiphop instead of blaming myself. It took me a long time to understand that, in fact I had to back away completely to really embrace the importance. So I came back to hiphop with some integrity and wisdom and a different spirit and a different mind.” — [Blaze Rock]
