Fresh commented during an interview with The Fader that he chose the music route over the streets because he “seen the bigger picture.”
“I knew I wasn’t gonna be able to make millions just running around in the streets because first of all your name will get too hot, they’ll try to knock you off,” he said. “Or, I’ll get too piped up, a nigga might try to rob me. I shoot him, he shoot me. That’s just how this shit goes in Atlanta this shit real, for real. And motherfuckers don’t know it because they be so caught up in the “Okay, well, Atlanta. The music. The glamour. They ball. The strip club.” They don’t know. I done seen this city swallow motherf*****s.”
