That's how I do it, you know what I mean? Everything just happened for a reason. I'm here today. The first mixtape I was telling all my business — go back and listen to it if you haven't — and this time around I'm still giving y'all these stories, letting y'all know what's going on in my life. It's just good music.
"The mixtape came super fast because I was working on it before all of this happened, so it was kinda perfect timing to put it out. This is old to me but new to everybody else. I'm in album mode- I'm ready. We'll see. It's gonna be crazy."
