I watched CDs metamorphose to MP3s, from MP3s going all the way down to Serato. All of this, and I thought we were there already ... Until I came down here to the BET 2013 Awards Weekend ... and I got a chance to work with something that I'm going to say right now, is probably the next toy in my arsenal!"
