I saw him at an industry convention, and just like most artists, they are just regular folks trying to get you to pump up their material. It's a lot like a slave auction if you ask me. But I've met the same cats at hip hop shows, as a fan and as part of the promotion for that show, and they can be jerks.
He was cool when I met him. But I wouldn't expect to see him today and spark up a convo about the beef btw colin powell and dick cheney.
