Before the performance, the Florida rapper discussed his affection for anime. He lamented being labelled a "Naruto gangsta," ("I don't even watch Naruto like that," he said), adding that his favorite Dragon Ball Z character is Future Trunks, because "He's from the future, he's ten times realer than Vegeta, [and] he has the highest kill count in Dragon Ball Z... He just had the swag."
The 2016 XXL Freshman also revealed what went into making his latest project Imperial. "I just took where I was from and my feelings and composed it into one project. It worked out for the better, because I was really going through a tough time." Watch the entire video above.
