This is just a stepping stone to inspire somebody else at a university to do the same thing. Just [by] linking up the communities, we can all move forward in building a super utopian state.”
As for why the musician began to provide again early on, he stated, “All the ideas are fresh when you’re young. If you have the opportunity to do it now, why wait until you’re older? That’s just years of other people’s lives that you could be changing. I’m from such a small place. To find my place, where I am now, how did I do it? I knew if I was able to help the next person, man, I would love to do it.”
Scott credited his associates for enjoying pivotal roles in his life together with artist Dozie Kanu, who was available. Speaking of the artwork in his movies, Scott stated, “It’s all a trifecta.
