The hip hop legend has recently contributed tracks to the Notorious soundtrack and a recorded a remix of Young Jeezys My President.
He continued: I don't have any quotas, and that's a good thing. It may be too freeing. It's a good thing and a bad thing 'Cause if I had restrictions, I would have done it in three weeks. I would have made what I believe to be a great piece of art.
