“That’s not right what [Chris Rock] said about his wife, calling her GI Jane.”

“In Hollywood, you know they say there is no such thing as bad publicity. I rap about these things in my music and knew it would get attention. The caught-on-camera tackle has already earned Lee some celebrity status behind bars from fellow inmates, he said.  They come up to me and ask, ‘Hey, are you the guy who went up to Dave Chappelle? I feel safer here right now than being outside because I’m going to need to find and hire security.”
