Because I didn’t go to film school, you learn so much from a lot of creative artists.
When you start directing movies at the age of 24, you’re just a kid, you don’t necessarily even have the experiences to add to the story, you’re working off of instinct and raw emotions and raw talent, and hopefully it’s the same trajectory as growing as a person.
There’s always things from shooting a film that you pick up that hopefully make you better.
Hip hop has been an integral part of my life and my whole career. I started off doing videos with Ice Cube, and Dre, and Mary J. Blige, and TLC. So I’ve been involved in hip hop since the beginning.
