"I want to let you know that face to face, while I'm still here."

"I want to say, Lil Wayne, if it wasn’t for the risk you took, none of us would be here tonight," he continued, nodding to the Young Money boss.

"And I want to say," he concluded, "My dad got on a purple suit with purple shoes. Boy, if you don't stop!"
