He responded, “Uh, first off, I’d like to say thank you for having me. I know it’s been a long time and people been requesting… But you know me, I operate off feeling and energy. And you know, like the lord said, things may not come when you want it, but it is always on time. So this is the perfect time for us to have a conversation.”
