He further explained,

"I was doing a tv movie out there and I went to the club. Tiny was living in Atlanta. He knew the ins and outs of the city, and he was just like, Mr. Atlanta. We were hanging out in the club and he told me about this chick, that chick, whatever. Then I saw Pam, who is my wife, and I said, ‘What’s up with her?’ He said, ‘Nah, man, don’t waste your time. She doesn’t give anybody no play.’ So as soon as he said that, I was like, ‘That’s the woman I need to go holler at.'"

"I have been with my wife for a number of years now and the number one thing that keeps us strong is a mutual respect; that is first and foremost."

"I would like to think of myself as pretty perceptive because when I am in different types of situations, I am always watching and listening more than I am talking. And when I met my wife, there were a lot of qualities I was paying attention to. I knew that she would be a great mother just for how she cared for her nephew and her family. She respected her mother and she respected her family and those were some of the initial qualities that I saw that I thought would make her a great partner."
