I found him to be very intelligent. I had really figured things out at an early age. [He had] such an amazing way to look at life and see things, just to sit down and have these conversations with him, man.

I stayed with him and his parents when I was 18, all he did was watch those tapes, whether it was karate movies, Michael Jordan, home and adult movies like ‘Come Play With Me ‘ ‘Come Fly With Me’ ‘Playground’. He loved karate movies. Just to be around it and walk through his career and what he’s become, just an icon and such an inspiration to a generation of people.
