There’s just something, maybe it’s the authenticity. I think that’s the appeal and why people choose to watch really unpolished and unprofessional videos on YouTube over these multi-million dollar television shows.

You can feel when something’s authentic, and you can feel when it’s not: you know when someone’s trying to make the club record, or trying to make the girl record, or trying to make the thug record. It’s none of that. It’s just my emotions.
