Rick James was an American musician and composer... (wikipedia)

If anything I consider myself non-violent, I'm from the hippy era, peace, love, groovy.
I just live one day at a time.
I wrote and produced millions and millions of selling records, so my publishing company alone was worth millions of dollars. I didn't have to work anymore in life because when the rappers started sampling... I'm the most sampled artist in history.
You can't have rock and roll without drugs, you can't have rock and roll without sex.
After I saw Kiss on stage, I wanted my show to look like the fourth of July. The persona of Rick James was wild and crazy, sex, drugs and rock and roll.
