You are blessed I did not come for other customers of your family members.”

And it is likely to come about. But they are making an attempt to power it. They attempted to get me 3 fights in the past. They are trying to force my hand simply because they really don’t fully grasp the electricity of momentum. I’m telling you, gentleman, I can’t be stopped correct now. Do not get me completely wrong. It’s me. I can cease myself. But the momentum I have appropriate now, I just cannot be stopped. It’s a force you cannot (expletive) with.”
