I remember, at like 25, saying, ‘I don’t want to be a 40-year-old rapper.’ I’m 39 now, and I’m still standing by that,” he said. “I’m such a fan that I don’t want to infiltrate it with old blood.”
 
He also discussed how he writes verses for features in recent years.
 
“I struggle with the verses. I don’t sit around and write raps, I just don’t,” Andre said. “My son, he’s 16. Him and his buddies, they’ll be in the car, and I’ll say, ‘Hey, what do you think about this verse?’ That’s my gauge at this point.”
