He said the police in the country are unprofessional and then went on to share a story about how he and his friends were once harassed by the police. He said, “Just the other day, I was going out, my friends and I and the police stopped us and harassed us thoroughly and took us to the station for no reason at all. The same thing happened to Rico Suave, we were on set together and he was out with his assistant and they harassed him and eventually busted his assistant’s eye. The police issue has to be solved, it’s crazy.”

He describes himself as being very family-oriented, making sure he spends enough time with his family because he does not get to see them often.
