Suge Knight: You’ve gotta be a good listener and see things that people don’t believe and you’ve gotta be dedicated.
Tavi Gevinson: Say I was hanging out with people from school and substance abuse was happening and someone takes a picture of me and puts it on the internet.
Knight: It ain’t that serious. It’s a way to express yourself.
Gevinson: But that'll probably change as I get older.
Knight: Definitely. Patience is everything.
Gevinson: A lot of people have a knee-jerk reaction that if something is mainstream, then it must not be good.
Knight: I don’t think people really like gimmicks.
Gevinson: Oh, totally.
Knight: Yeah. (laughs) Fake jewelry.
Gevinson: I think it’s so well-crafted.
Knight: We don’t take shit for granted. So before you embrace someone nowadays you want to pretty much know who you’re embracing.
Gevinson: I don’t know. You don't have to deny the part of yourself that's emotional.
Knight: If that’s what you choose to do, that’s what you do.
Gevinson: Why would I want to hold myself back or be precious?
Knight: I’m a bad person to ask that because I don’t do slam pieces.
