He’s in prison right now, serving a 24-year sentence. He used to rap, and we used to rap all the time together, and I felt like it was necessary, but also dope from the creative side, to include him on the intro for the album to shed some light on him and his situation.”
“It also kind of put the pieces [of the album] together because he’s seeing things from a bird’s eye view perspective — more so from a caged bird’s perspective, if you would. I think it starts [the album] off beautifully,” he said.
