In an interview with Howard University’s Hilltop student newspaper, Cordae talks about how his album was inspired by his late grandmother and journal entries.
“My mom was like, ‘Son, the stuff that you do every day is a blessing, so journal about it, write down all the things you do every day,’” Cordae said.
