In the lead-up to the album Co$$ has released a video for the single "Spaceman" and a prequel to the album with his Sleepwalking mixtape. Sleepwalking has already been named one of the Top 10 Mixtapes of 2011 by About.com and was featured on NahRight , TheSource, 2DB, Smoking Section, HypeTrak and more. Before I Awoke was chosen for XXL's Chairman's Choice, LA Weekly's Music To Pick Up/Download, Los Angeles Times, and more.
Before I Awoke is a very personal project that Co$$ painstakingly worked on for 3 years. The title represents Co$$' awakening from a haze of sleepwalking through life. On the album he throws out think piece after think piece on the state of his relationships, creative expression, dreams, his father's passing, lost lovers and more. Co$$' lyrics cut deep with a sense of poetic urgency that is both reflective and brutally honest. Album features include Aloe Blacc, Blu, Sene, and Shawn Jackson and production credits from Exile, Fonetik Simbol, J83, Cook Classics and more. Co$$ has previously, according to the Los Angeles Times, "quietly assassinated the few guest appearance he's been on." Co$$ was also featured on Fashawn's critically acclaimed Boy Meets World and Exile's album Dirty Science.
