Nobody can take that away from him. A lot of my stuff I get from WWE–a lot of my inspiration. Even though people know all the moves aren’t real and sh*t, it’s the way they sell them that makes it official. That’s how I feel about my sh*t; if I can sell it, then no matter what I say, it’s going to sound hot.”
