"I wanna thank all the guys on the panel for being here," Hov said a the press conference. "I especially wanna thank [former Def Jam executive] Kevin Liles because an idea isn't anything without execution so he put this together -- I turned on the T.V. September 12th  and I saw footage of these heroic actions, people running into buildings, saving each other and I just saw the strength of New York and it made me proud. So as I was embarking on putting out this Blueprint 3, it was only right to release it the day. This is my chance to help out so I thank all these guys up here helping me see that vision. Kevin Liles, the governor and everybody, I really appreciate this and we gonna have a great time and bring in ear plugs because it's gonna get loud." (Rap Radar)
