“One of my girls I used to fuck with, she was so fucking in love with NBA Youngboy,” Rod told his Instagram followers during a livestream. “I was like 17 years old living in my own crib. I remember she was just so fucked up about bro. And I just used to be in my living room watching bro's videos and shit and I used to be like damn, he's turned up. So I tried to turn it up. That's real shit.”

He added, “And now we here. It's crazy bruh how much a n-gga took and just used it. Like That's what made me take shit serious though, like just seeing other n-ggas. That shit inspired me.”
