Before anything and above all I got to thank all the winning producers for their hard work and effort and all the producers that submitted for even trying, you are appreciated. G.C., S.2, DJ Qvali, Tokyo Cigar, JLH, Digivillanous, EvolveAudio & Natown Legend, you are respected.
Now…let me say this; this project ain’t about “blowing up” off Illmatic; this project ain’t about who don’t like it; this project ain’t about controversy; this project, just like all my shit, ain’t about money; this project is something that I been wanting to do since my Illmatic tape popped on the school bus on a hot ass day many Mays ago. Realistically, I got a bucket list and this was on it. So I did it and before I grow up too much I hope to check a few more things off the list.
Needless to say, I hope y’all dig it. But I make music for people that want to hear what I want to hear, so if you don’t dig it, then you ain’t one of them people. But if you dig it, dig it; good look.
