And I was there right with her. I had to go through it with her. I’m changing the tubes and all that. So, I just encouraged him. But Boosie’s spirit is real high. And we just talked about life, man. And he just was saying how he had to go through what he went through. He real humble, man. Boosie a real humble dude.”
