"[I] split my time between a lot of different things because I am happily obligated to do concerts and show love to my fans," the musician, who recently welcomed his first child with his now-fiance, furhter explained. "And then I'm happily obligated to write music and make beats by myself, and I'm happily obligated to, you know, take care of my family."
