I'm not like into this whole thing. I'm just doing whatever. Whoever tells me to do it, I just go.
I always had a lot of problems in high school with the police and all that stuff. Fighting.
Somehow trouble always follows me. I can't get away from it.
Being a kid is tough, everyone knows that; everyone has some rough issues.
I want to be able to be on a beach and make money by smiling.
People respect you by your aura.
