It’s me and 40 just channeling our Quincy Jones/Michael Jackson production duo. Obviously no offense to the greats, I know we’re not anywhere near that — it’s just us kinda doing our thing, humbly attempting.”
It’s not a rap record. It’s not ‘Versace,’ it’s not ‘Started From the Bottom‘. In approaching this album I was like man, it would be great if we had a record that was played at weddings in 10 years or that people that are away from their families in the army could listen to. Something that just [has] timeless writing, timeless melody. So I did it with the group that we signed to OVO called Majid Jordan.
Majid is singing on the record with me and Jordan is his production partner. It’s a great record. I’m nervous and excited and all these things about it. I’ve never really put out a record like this before, so we’ll see how it goes.
