"I hate to have people call me a funk artist. I always get upset when I hear that. I'm so much more than a funk artist. I love lyrics. I like to consider myself a good lyricist. I love classical music, and I love Indian music, and I love all these musics that I've studied. I love jazz and R&B, Latin, salsa music, all that kind of stuff. Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, and all that. My love for music ranges, and it's so deep. To call me a funk artist really undermines me, and everything that I've done."
