On Aaliyah:Â â€œWhen I first met Aaliyahâ€”itâ€™s time for the world toÂ hearÂ this, Iâ€™m gonna give up a little secretâ€”I was in love with her. I said, But Iâ€™m notâ€¦ She just a baby, Iâ€™m old. I said to myself, â€˜Iâ€™m just gonna be her brother.â€™ Oh man, I was fightinâ€™, I was fightinâ€™ a lotâ€”a big war. But I loved Aaliyah.â€
On JustinÂ Timberlake:Â â€œMe and Justin, itâ€™s the weirdest thing. We just say weâ€™re gonna kill them and then we kill themâ€¦We get together, we break bread and we spill out music. Thatâ€™s what we do.â€
On Missy Elliott:Â â€œShe was just super dopeâ€¦she was God-sent; that was my sister.â€
On his weight gain:Â â€œI was almost 400 pounds. Who wants to be a 400-pound black man? Iâ€™m looking in theÂ mirror, my breast is bigger than a girl breast. And I was saying, â€˜That AnitaÂ cool.â€™ So I got very depressed, like suicidal depressed.â€
On his marriage to wife Monique:Â â€œItâ€™s probably hard to be married to me. Itâ€™s not easy. Iâ€™m a musical genius. Iâ€™m weird, I do crazy things, itâ€™s not like the average norm. But Iâ€™m a loving guy.â€
