My grandma is kind of a rock star. She goes to France and all over.

Why don't women have respect for themselves nowadays? What happen to the woman who learned her grandmama's recipes and made her man sweet potato pie? I tell you, they don't make 'em like they used to. Will my real women stand up, please?

I'm trying to build a brand. I'm not just doing one-off projects.

As an actor, it's amazing to get to create different characters.

I know how to be funny to black audiences.

When you're blessed, you've got to be sensitive to people that don't have and need to depend on somebody else to eat.

I can't believe that women have got to put on so much in the morning. What time do women wake up? Man, I put a t-shirt and jeans on, and that's it.

I'm always doing comedy and will never hit up a 9-to-5 desk job.

I come from a young, hip-hop, urban world.

I want to have children, please God, with a woman that I love and that I'm very attracted to.
