The Gin and Juice hitmaker has often courted controversy for his edgy lyrics but he has now confessed a newfound respect for women has sparked a clean-up of his songwriting.

He tells Sky News, "I am more sensitive and more vulnerable writing-wise and accepting a woman for being a beautiful person, as opposed to me saying she is a b**ch or a whore... That was how I was trained when I first started, so I have no regrets...

"As I grew I fell in love with my wife and started to love my mother, my grandmother and my daughter. I understood what a woman was and I started to write and express that."
