On his Instagram:
"Everybody has the same fears. If my letters did anything, they proved that everyone kinda feels the same way. I'm not special. You have to be real with yourself. No one is doing that. People are too concerned with making everything look nice and calm and pretty."
On "Because the Internet":
"I want to show how the Internet affects our lives. As much as everyone can fix someone on the Internet now, we still feel lost. I still feel very empty. It makes me feel more lost because nothing that I do is that different. Nothing is cool. We're kind of alone in the universe. Like those Instagram notes I shared. We all feel these things, but nobody's figured out how to solve them."
On his music:
"My music is for everybody.It's stuff I like, but it's also accessible. I don't want to be preaching to the choir. You see a lot of these conscious rappers doing that. They're not gaining new fans, they're just agreeing with people. I want to reach as many people as I possibly can."
