Make something better , and also the tons of fan messages constantly make the stress worth it

VD: What advice, if any, would you give yourself if you could go back in time?
WC: I'd definitely tell myself don’t be afraid to rap in front of people like I used to, focus on my engineering and sound and marketing image early on to get that edge, and any sign of a persons negativity early on means chop them, your greater success comes first.
