The amount of focus that I'm able to put into this album is probably way different than it would have been," he told Diddy via Instagram Live. "Definitely, this the most excited I've been about an album in a long time. A lot of little stuff has been trickling out but all the stuff on the album is fresh, it's brand new and I'm excited. This is probably the most music I've ever been sitting on and I'm hype... I'm getting close."
