What Henry takes from life, he gives back to his art. (2:59)

UM, I HAD A FUNNY THING HAPPEN

TO ME.

I WAS AT THE PORT AUTHORITY

OVER THERE AND IT WAS LATE AT

NIGHT, IT WAS ABOUT TWO IN THE

MORNING.

AND THERE'S NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE

AROUND AND THIS LIKE 20 YEAR-OLD

PIMP GUY CAME UP TO ME AND

HE WAS--

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID

TO ME.

I'M NOT KIDDING.

HE WAS LIKE "HEY DUDE,

YOU WANNA GET YOUR [BLEEP]

SUCKED OR WHATEVER?"

AND I WAS LIKE, "NAH MAN,

THAT'S ALL RIGHT."

SO THEN I STARTED WALKING AWAY.

AND THEN HE CAME OVER AND TAPPED

ME AGAIN.

AND HE'S LIKE "I DIDN'T MEAN ME

MAN, I MEAN I GOT GIRLS,

YOU KNOW, IN THE CAR, THAT'S

WHAT I MEANT TO SAY."

AND I WAS LIKE "NO, I KNOW WHAT

YOU MEANT."

AND THEN HE STARTED FOLLOWING ME

A LITTLE BIT.

AND I THINK HE WAS KIND OF

NERVOUS.

AND I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT WORKS

IF THERE ARE ANY PIMPS OUT

THERE, OR WHATEVER.

BUT IF THERE'S SOME KIND OF

PIMP SUPPORT GROUP THAT YOU'D GO

TO 'CAUSE I FELT REAL BAD FOR

HIM.

I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW.

MAYBE SET HIM DOWN.

ONE OF THE GUYS ON THE CORNER

AND JUST SORT OF, YOU KNOW.

"HEY KID, I KNOW YOU HAD A

ROUGH TIME OUT THERE, BUT I JUST

WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I DID

THE SAME THING WHEN I WAS A KID

AND UH, IT'S ALL RIGHT, MAN.

YOU GOT TO PICK UP YOURSELF BY

THE BOOTSTRAPS AND WORK REAL

HARD AND EVENTUALLY YOU CAN

BECOME ONE OF THE BEST PIMPS IN

THE WORLD AND UM...

WHAT THE HELL WAS I TALKING

ABOUT?

OH YEAH, DO YOU GUYS LIKE THE

BLUES AT ALL?

[LAUGHTER]

ALL RIGHT, COOL.

[APPLAUSE]

UM, THIS IS A LITTLE BLUES SONG.

THIS IS A GREAT YEAR FOR ME.

I'VE GOT MY SECOND CD, WHICH HAS

ONLY BEEN OUT FOR ABOUT

SIX YEARS NOW AND IT'S ALREADY

GONE INTO THE DOUBLE-DIGIT SALES

CATEGORY, WHICH IS KIND OF

EXCITING.

AND I'M MAKING HUNDREDS OF

DOLLARS A YEAR DOING WHAT I LIKE

TO DO AND THAT'S THE IMPORTANT

THING.

BUT I LIKE TO SAY THAT WHAT I

TAKE FROM LIFE, I GIVE BACK

THROUGH MY ART AND SO FAR I'VE

TAKEN NOTHING BUT CRAP AND

THAT'S ALL I'VE HAD TO GIVE.

BUT THIS IS A SONG ABOUT A GUY

WHO WANTS TO SING THE BLUES BUT

FRANKLY EVERYTHING'S GOING

PRETTY GOOD AND IT'S CALLED

"FRESH OUT OF BLUES".

AND I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT.
