  1. I think, to me, reality is better than being fake.
  2. I go light on breakfast. Sometimes it’s a yogurt, but a lot of times it’s leftovers from one of my wife’s dinners.
  3. I’m just an entertainer, man. I don’t like to pigeonhole myself to anything. I love to do it all.
  4. But with rap music — not just N.W.A. — but rap music in general, seeing these artists wearing these team logos all the time started bringing a synergy and energy about having to rep your city, your team, everywhere and all the time.
  5. ‘Boyz-n-the-Hood’ was actually supposed to be written for Eazy’s group. He had a group out in New York called Home Boys Only, called HBO. One of them looked like LL Cool J. Eazy wanted to write a song for them, a street song, like what we were doing on the mix tapes. So when I wrote it, it was too West Coast for them.
  6. When I did ‘Boyz N The Hood’, I never thought how we grew up in South Central was interesting enough for a movie.
  7. I do what I do. You like it, great. You don’t, go listen to somebody else. I’m stickin’ with the people who stuck with me.

  11. I have a really beautiful life right now, so there is no reason to be hostile. I’m a husband, a father and a man who tries to do the right thing in life and in my work.
  12. There’s a lot of potential that goes unused in places like South Central L.A., a lot of brilliant, smart people who just don’t have that chance to show it.
  13. I definitely support cop acting more than cops, but all of them ain’t bad, just some of them.
  14. We’re in this entertainment business really to give the audience what they want.
  15. Early in my career, people wanted to hear music about protest, about trying to change things.
  16. It never gets old. Working with somebody like Kevin Hart is rejuvenating in a lot of ways. He’s such a pro. He’s so good.
  17. I still enjoy doing music. I’m not going to stop doing it, and doing it the way that I feel it should be done.
  18. You like a woman, she’s got kids, it’s a package. You can’t just go in one-sided.
  19. Quincy Jones’ autobiography ‘Q’ is very good. Because he’s a master at music, he’s one of our greatest composers, and its good for him to have a book and tell the good ole days when he was with Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan and Ray Charles.
