I love it!

Dj Slikk: The best advice I can give somebody is never settle man. Never feel like you made it. Never take a break. Just keep pushing. Even if you don't feel like you're there, just keep pushing. It's around the corner. Just keep on moving. I just want to tell people that. Like even if you're making bread and you're feeling good. Keep pushing, keep switching up stuff and keep innovating yourself. That'll be my words of advice. I swear it'll work out for you. And if not you'll figure out another way to make some bread and you'll be all the way together.
