The unapologetic rapper hints that HNDRXX will present more frank and free-flowing themes than his 2014 effort, Honest. “It might get more attention than I want it to get,” he said of one of the tracks, “My Collection.” “It might get the wrong attention. It might get great attention. Who knows?” The rapper is well aware of his controversial lyrics that often talk about drug use, loneliness and the draco, but he’s also conscious of his duties as a father.

“You gotta sacrifice so much, even the times with your kids,” he said. “You have to just do music and you’re becoming this entertainer and so many people require so much of your time for different things, different obligations you have to make money, or just different obligations you have as a person in whatever the situation may be.”

A father to three children, the rapper says splitting his duties isn’t as attainable as people may think, cause superstar. “You gotta leave town and miss out on certain things, that you feel like you should be there. Like, your dad should be a part of this moment,” he continued. “I gotta be like, ‘Damn, man, your daddy really a superstar and entertainer.’ My kids gotta understand, they gotta make a sacrifice, having a superstar dad. My career choice is my career choice. Just stepping out of that zone, to be able to be a provider. I understand my position as a provider and my role as a dad also…Just being able to be comfortable with it. Everybody wanna be a super dad and the best dad ever but sometimes, I’m just realizing that I’m not perfect.”
