As for the title of the album, the “Angel Dust” MC said that he may not have a name for his next body of work “till release.” However, he does have some ideas for what he and his team may be doing for the album rollout.

“We might do a single but we might do something different,” he explained. He and WeWork vice chairman Michael Gross said that they enjoy how artists like EDM group The Chainsmokers release material from their album only a few weeks apart from each other.
