When asked if the fans have an idea of work he puts in his music, Wurld said he thinks some of them get it. “Most fans listen to music from feel.

Every other day people just want your attention and they want interactions and get actual comments”. “Do you really think those fans on the opposite sides do not like the other side? I don’t really think so.  I think people just love the conversation. Without it, it’s not as fun, it’s good to talk about, it’s good to attack people.”

Many people think this guy’s energy is different but I actually broke down for the first time. I am that guy that shows up with the same vibe and energy every time but for the first time in my life, I felt like I wasn’t sure, I felt scared, I felt broken, I felt like I didn’t have vision, I didn’t know what to believe, what to feel, I didn’t know what felt right, it wasn’t physical, I had no motivation.”

“I had to stop my recording, I had to turn everything off, I had to get some sleep, I had to get some sleeping aide from my sister, I tried to force myself to sleep, that helped. It was scary because for the first time I felt out of control. I felt I had always had control and the control is really large. Being in control is like things happen but you brush it to the side because you wanna keep going”, he said. He, however, added that some take it too far and it pulls others to do the same thing and eventually affects the artistes. Wurld also opined that artistes whose fans bully others should speak against it, whether they like the bullied or not.
