“You haffi a look pon de future too. When the thing build certain way you waan make sure say a next man can’t come say him own mi name, and then mi can’t sell nothing wid mi name pon it. It also separate me from the Men In Black actor Tommy Lee Jones and the Motley Crew drummer called Tommy Lee, yuh zi mi. So me a set mi thing straight,” Tommy Lee added.
