"Everyone that comes from the place that I come from, all my people from South London, all my people from East London, West London, North London, Manny, Birmingham..."
"All my young kings and queens that are chasing their dreams, I'm no different from you, I'm just a guy. Everything I'm saying is a fact, you can do anything you put your mind to."
He added, "Everyone that I know that's inside doing their time holding it down, I love you guys. Thank you so much. Streatham Vale to the world."
