Hollywood.tv caught up with Loon at the Grand Hyatt Dubai, where the rapper talked about Dubai, not living to keep up financially with his peers, and where he’s been lately. “When I first came out on Bad Boy, I was only able to show one dimension of myself,” he explained. “It’s really difficult to have a most important impression shown on you dealing with an overwhelming force like Sean Combs. I wanted to break away from all of that and establish that because I knew I’d never be able to get the opportunity on Bad Boy. So what I did was step away for a minute and allow myself some time to let certain things weather – I just pretty much strategized my return.” Watch the interview, and highlights from his show at the venue, below.
