Musician D Double E, broadcaster Jon Snow, reality star Jack Fowler and others reveal the influences that shaped them
In my head, Im not masculine because Im not big, and Im not physically strong. But Im powerful as a man in my own way because I know what I want and I know how I want to be.
Im a lot like my dad, I dress like my dad, we walk the same, I think hes given me everything from my calmness to facial expressions. He was everything I am, just not an artist. He was famous in the end, had the deepest swagger, 20 chains, and rings. He was a Jamaican Yardie with a Kangol hat, like the one I used to wear when I was doing grime.
Ive had different stages, but I would say one of my best periods of life was at 21, 22, when I first got my car, first got a few things like a chain, I remember just working and achieving things.
And then when I was 30 was when I felt like I was at a second chapter. Id made the most money Ive made in my career when I was 30.
I love being a man because of my mentality and the way I think. Im mad independent, in terms of following my dream, and as a woman I think its harder to do it because you have to give up certain things I can get married, have kids and still live my dream. But as a woman, you have to kind of split it up.
I see my responsibilities as a dad as being protection and guidance. Just making sure my daughters know that anything they need, anything they want, is achievable depending on them. When they do well in school Ill reward them. And they always want to impress me, so its good.
If youve got a boy, people are scared of them getting shot and all sorts of stuff happening.
The internet has made parenting harder keeping up with what they are doing on their iPads for example, but its made all relationships harder. For me, Im just strictly music online; I dont put relationships out there. When it comes to your kids, all you can do is hope.
