Transcription

When it’s through music, they actually, people fucking listen. They actually fucking listen. You can tell somebody the same fucking thing, the sentence 100 times, and then go record it on a track next day, and they’ll go "Oh I understand what you mean now." Facts. People don’t like to listen unless they’re forced to so I try to tell the mic everything, ‘cause some people just didn’t wanna listen to me. It was a very random session. Very natural session. LUCA. presented the beat to me. He ran it and I was like, “What the hell is this? This right here. This is the one. I love this beat." I just kept freestyling, and then there was one part that really stood out. It was like, “Say less, say less, say less, say less, say less.” Instead of telling me you’re gonna do it, just show me baby. Show me what’s going on girl. Sometimes when I have girls over at my crib, when I be out, and I have girls and I tell them come over to my hotel or whatever. They're like, "Oh my god. Why your room so hot?" "Like you have Africa or Jamaica here? Can you please turn it down?" Nah. This is how I keep it. I need it like this. You know what I’m saying? That's a Toronto thing. Everybody from the West End, to the East of Toronto says "say less." Whether you're Asian, White, Black, Hispanic, don't matter. Everybody says "say less." ‘Cause I’m like I really don’t understand what you’re talking about. So say less fam. I don’t need to...we don’t need to keep going. I understand. Say less. I keep myself lonely because it's easier for me to be lonely from like bullshit. I stay away from negativity. When I mean lonely, I'm not always alone. But I love having alone time. And sometimes I actually will be alone when I wake up. Like, "Oh shit. I'm alone in this bitch. Nobody in the crib." I'll play video games a lot, or I watch a whole bunch of Netflix. I have my ones I watch. So I'll just watch my runs, we'll have a marathon. She moves around a lot. She moves around a lot. She hops around a lot. I can’t say too much. She’s around a lot. Crew hopping is a thing that goes on everywhere. It’s not happening in one city, not in one place, not one environment too. Happens in music, sports, all sorts of businesses, all sorts of environments and shit. Girl or guy. It doesn't matter. We make plans. You'll tell me, "Yeah, I'm going to come through." And you just got me waiting. Like, bro you could have hit me up from time say, "Yo bro, I can't make it." It's all good, no problem. But when you just leave me there in the blue, have me waiting for you. Come on where's the respect? You know what I'm saying. Come on, I need that. When you feel like you're lost, and you don't know what to do, it's like you're almost stuck. You feel really stuck, don't know who to talk to, don't know how to feel, how to act. You have to know that you're not alone. Even though you may feel lonely in this world, you're never alone. And it's always people out there that really do care for you, and really do love you. You just can't be blind to them. You can't be selfish, to want the people that you want to love you, love you. Nah, that's not how the world works. The people that love you, love you for a reason. And you have to just appreciate that, and be grateful for them, because bro you can be dead ass lonely out here. My form of expressing my pain, and getting things off of my head. Making sure that I'm sane in my head. So when I make music, I'm not just making for you guys, but I make it for me too. I'm literally making it for me too, 'cause I need to get these things out of my head. I don't like doing a lot of talking when it comes down to my life in the first place. I like telling the mic my tale.

Early life

For over three years, Woods attended Turner Fenton High School and eventually made a decision to move to St. Augustine Secondary School during his final year. Before his music career took off, he was often recognized for his commitment and talent in the sport of football. The origin of his name 'Roy' comes from a youth that lived in the same building as him from Brampton. Woods took a survey throughout his high school and Roy Wood$ seemed to be the winning ticket.
