I immediately started working on this album right after my last one with the one goal of making it even better. I spent a lot of time perfecting each song and unlike most artists, I give the consumer what they deserve. 15 Songs plus 3 Bonus Tracks just to give the listener a FULL album to enjoy!! September 7 will be an Exciting day for Hip Hop!! Get Big!!!”
