In a sit-down conversation with KJ Spio on Ceek, the multiple awardwinning rapper revealed,
“Doing something for over 15 years, having the spotlight on you for 10 years changes how you see things. I still want to be able to surprise the people and do cadence they’ve never heard before.
And to be able to do that, I can’t use the old approach.”
He went further went on to say,
“I think you have lose something to gain something. I had to lose the old me to have the new me…”
