“What I’m releasing right now is a part of me wanting music out during the middle of the summer. I had a plan for myself: I wanted to have the new record come out during my birthday. I don’t really need label support for this project. It’s about the actual music, and I don’t think people buy what record label you’re on; I think they buy music or buy into the actual artist themselves.
They’re in full support of me now. We cleared up audit issues. That’s always an issue, when you get to the final album or the final requirement you end up going through the books with everything that you’ve done. Once those things are resolved, everyone is ready to get back to work, and that’s where we’re at.”
