I was just angry at my mom, ... I don't know if it was because they broke up, but I used to argue with my mom a lot, just over little things.

Everybody wants to show him off, but I don't do that, ... If he wants to lay there, I make sure he has cable to watch and food to eat.

When they (Greg Jr. and his brother, Anthony) started basketball, I couldn't see them as much, ... I used to have them for summers and entire Christmas breaks because I never wanted them to think I forgot about them.

I have no idea at this point, ... We haven't talked about it. We will have to talk about it first.

It was two hours of that, ... Pizza and Nickelodeon.

I know that's where I want to go, ... I'm not really worried about other schools or things like that. As far as signing, I just haven't talked it over with Mike or Mom yet.

He was like, 'Big G, what up? Who you walking with?' ... I said, 'Nobody. I'm just sightseeing.' He was like, 'Get in.' He was going to a party, so I rode with him, then he had his driver drop me off.

You are who raised you. I've never been into entourages and stuff, and I know Zoe hasn't either, ... That's why I understand when he comes here and doesn't want to be bothered.
