"I think the guy that played Pac, we need to check his birth certificate. People don't know this, but I was supposed to play Pac. I was supposed to play Tupac Shakur. I didn't get as far as reading the scripts and things of that nature, but I actually was lined up or one of those guys that was considered to play 2Pac." (DJ Smallz Eyez)
"They just made a movie, they didn't think of it as a cultural event. They didn't think of it in terms of something that affected our generation. People who are younger, who don't really understand the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur, they just go to a movie and they see a rap star. But dude was much more than a rap star. So that's why I'm really upset. And then these cats get on the radio and start disparaging my name - 50 [Cent] came out and had my back. 'I saw this, y'all need to apologize to John.'" (V-103)

A-Rod is Dominican and J. Lo is Puerto Rican. Back when I was in school in the 90's, the Dominican and Puerto Ricans were having a little war situation so anything to mend those fences? I love it. So if it's A-Rod sliding a rod to Jennifer Lopez? I'm all for it. I used to do a lot of J. Lo private parties, her birthday and AMAs after parties and Vegas parties so if I have a chance to [congratulate her I will]." (SOHH)
