"Newark isn't a playground. I had friends that sold drugs, stole cars. Being African-American and driving a nicer car than cops thought I should gave me problems."
"I would love to play a psychopath. Oh man, that would be amazing."
"My mom has seen me die way too much. I gotta give her a break. Hopefully, moving forward, I'll make it through the third act."
Is a huge fan of Anime.
His middle name 'Bakari' is Swahili and means "of noble promise".
