Not only that but his physical state has also undergone several major changes.

This was a little thugged out kinda look. I was living here in New York at the time. So I definitely felt a lil' thuggish. Plus, I wasn't fat and I had a lil' muscle. No one wants to wear clothes when they looking right.
I had a lot of funk. I love this look right here. When I wear clothes like this it really changes my personality 'cause I know it's showtime, and I start to dress up. You could see the women in the audience licking their lips and s***.
My normal weight is 145-150 lbs. but I feel a little heavy right now. Have you seen Mariah Carey? I mean when you got good love you forget about everything else. That means you start eating good and not really thinking about nothing else. So I'm just being happy. I think I'm a cheeseburger away from fat. I'm about to go back in the gym heavy.
