My goal is to have one goal album, and that was it. It became more from there and all the way up until the Black Album. Then it became I want to show that, you know, artists can ascend to the executive ranks, you know, it just kept redefining themselves, you know, and which is why I took the presidency of Def Jam. It just keeps reinventing itself and redefining itself. Every single day I looked Mohammed Ali for one, not because he was a great champion, which he waas, but because he had the strength to stand up and say, I'm beautiful, I'm pretty. Look at me at a time where our people were considered not beautiful and looked upon as ugly and frowned upon. But he stood in that ring and say, I'm beautiful. I'm the greatest. He not only said that for him, he said that for our culture and our generations, So he would have to stand to be number one that goes with Beyonce, saying Martin Luther King, of course, Malcolm X as well, his strength and also Michael Jordan because of his will to win and his passion for what he did and how he gave his all toe what he loved. I would love to affect culture in such a way that you remembered. Like that thing about life is just a simple as a guy Walk into a wall and, uh, writing graffiti on the wall. You leave your name, here's the long after you're going people. They're looking at your name like this guy stood for that. He meant that tow us. And he did this for us. The same way I look to these guys now, borrow a little bit from their fearlessness and you know their strength and their, you know will.
