It’s like I want the world to know, ‘This is where I grew up, this is where I got into my first fight, this is where I had a crush on a girl.’ I just love the city and all it has to offer. The real L.A. place like Leimert Park, Crenshaw, Watts, and the Jungles, those are places that mean a lot to me. And I wanted to share them with the world.”
