I lost my house, almost everybody with me lost their homes, my family, all my people are in Atlanta, they got split up all over the country, some of my family got sent to canada, its real, its hurting, its going to hurt me for the next 10-15 years, its gonna hurt my people probably longer than that, just knowing we were taken away from our homes and have to change the way we live, new orleans is a home with like one big old person, you dont want to move'em, you dont move old people, you know what happens when you move old people?...they die. And thats whats happening.

Thats my company. Uptown records, but it stands for UpTown Period, we just call it that because we know there was another Uptown company, but we wanted to call it Uptown records originally.
