What would your entrance music be?

Davis: I like a lot of music that just came out like Kendrick Lamar's DNA or GOD, so one of those two songs.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I've got an old soul, and there's always some jams from back in the day playing. I've enjoyed the atmosphere, the vibe and the people around here a lot.
