InterviewsEdit

I didn’t make a collaboration-heavy album this time around. The only collaboration on the album is with rapper YG, who I worked with on my first mixtape. And maybe one or two other rappers on some remixes.

I’ve got another single coming out with French Montana, we recorded it while I was in Las Vegas last week.
