We got no skits, we got no intros, we got no outros.’ And if you look at my Gucci bag right now, the only album I have in my bag is the G.O.O.D. Music compilation. I love that album. I absolutely love it. This is the first time I ever said that. But the one thing that I saw that was missing was that. Like I want to be entertained in between songs.” (Power 99)
