"We went from having one person on the road with us to having an entourage of seven. You start having staff around you saying you need more eyeliner, the publicist comes and talks to you about how to answer questions. They're telling me who I need to favor in the room, which guy is the major deejay. They teach you how to become a politician. I'm thinking why do I need to know all this stuff? This is a grand manipulation. There's a strategy to getting your records played. As nice as everyone was, I just didn't look at music like a business."
"We really had nothing to show other than what was on video or film. But in terms of having enough money to buy a house, that was not happening. I thought; I have a college degree. If I'm smart I can get the same kind of money with my education with no limos attached. It all kind of hit a brick wall at the same time. Giant was going through politics that we were unaware of at the time 'cause we were on the road. And we were tired."
