” His Music was great I can’t I was the worlds hugest fan, but I liked his music. But what just want he did in his community and did an entrepreneur when you listen to the words he was a grinder and somebody who want to make a difference. He wanted to change his community and his heart is in the right place and it is heartbreaking. He was just here at a Mavericks game and I met him it is just sad”, Cuban told me.
