“I wasn’t really considered one of the popular kids. You see the popular kids go to the beach houses and the parties and everything. And it’s like you get envious of that, and so I wanted to be like that.”
“I’m not a partier. I’m just the guy that likes anime, likes reading books, and likes making funny videos, that’s just who I was. And it took me a while to figure it out.”
“I feel like I take inspiration from a lot of people. Because to be in the social media game you have to be on social media and you have to see what everybody’s talking about, who everybody’s watching.”
“When I really first started doing this, because the paradigm for Black creators was just to do reaction videos or regular blogs or gaming videos, or rapping on YouTube. But I just wanted to show if that’s what you do, do it and kill at it.”
“I wanted to show the youngsters, especially in the Black community, growing up, that if you have a goofy side to you don’t feel like you have to act tough or hood. You could show that goofy side and you could be successful at it.”

“I just want to try to live every day to the fullest and to the maximum potential as possible. So that way when I do rest my eyes, I don’t have any regrets.”
“My faith is what keeps me grounded. I feel like, especially when you get to this position, that’s when it’s easy to let the glitz and glamor get to you and change you as a person. But just having the word by my side, I feel like really keeps me down to earth.”
“You just see the thumbnail title. You think I’m an asshole or a troublemaker. But I’m just a kid that likes to have fun, man. Nothing I do is ever malicious or with ill intent. It’s just a kid having fun.”
“I’ve definitely crossed the line, especially with Pokimane Twitch situation.”
“I’ve crossed the line a lot of times. But I feel like that’s the thing about being human. I’m not a walking PR machine, I’m not going to try to say the best thing all the time. But also what I’m not going to do is, when I am wrong, I’m going to admit it.”
