The 21-year-old dedicated the LP to his late mother, Arlene Garnett. He talks about how losing her helped shape him as a man, even comparing losing her to losing himself. The album cover was inspired by Nas, one of his influences. Illmatic featured a similar cover that Kay Anthony used as inspiration, signifying that his friends mean the world to him and will be there every step of the journey.
