So It was actually 2009 lol… in this case, a year of poetic rap license mattered lol. I think he just innocently rhymed 08. Wait. Wait. Anybody who really knows me and was around during this time can confirm... it's all love, all peace…. I just didn't want anybody to think anything underage or creepy was happening. Completely innocent. Lifetimes ago.

We talked to each other when I was a lot younger, and he was a lot younger. And we are cool; we've always been cool. It's never been weird; it didn't come out of the blue. And he let me know… I didn't know that it was a song at 21.
