T.I explained to VIBE his need to expand his critically acclaimed EP.”I was compelled to turn the EP into an album because I felt my community is still in a state of crisis,” he said. “From the deaths of unarmed citizens to the election to just simply being a black man in this country I felt there is more I need to say. Hopefully, those like-minded individuals who hear it will be inspired to unite and make a difference in their own communities.”
