According to Missinfo.tv, Swizz Beatz praised his friend for his fashion, music, and creativity.
“He’s the secret weapon for fashion, the secret weapon for music, the secret weapon for creativity; he’s the secret weapon behind a lot of artists doing what they do today,” he said.

Thank You to the Brooklyn Borough President @bpericadams for presenting me with a Citation, the Key to Brooklyn, & honoring me by inducting my name into the Celebrity Path on the grounds of the iconic Brooklyn Botanic Garden later this year! I will continue to live by the words of your presentation & keep “bending the wire”. @sharoncarpenter @iamjhsa [shot by @evanpierce] #ICONTalks
