Lives in Hidden Valley, California.
I come from Tyler, Texas, where the railroad tracks separated us. On one side it was all black. On the other side it was all white. Whenever there were white people on our side of town, either somebody was going to jail or somebody was coming for the insurance. It's a different flow. So when I got to LA, I know it sounds funny but I was like, 'Man, we free.' It was amazing to me what I had been missing.
In our music, in our everyday life, there are so many negative things. Why not have something positive and stamp it with blackness?
She still talks to me now, only now she talks to me in my dreams. And I can't wait to go to sleep tonight because we have a lot to talk about. I love you.

I never planned to win an Oscar. When I auditioned for 'Ray,' I was just thinking about what a great project it would be.
I don't know if I'm built for marriage.
If I'm in the studio, I'm completely on music. I try to go to that place and that's the toughest thing for me to do. When I'm with other musicians, sometimes I go back to, almost like, childhood, because that's what I always wanted to be.
