Speaking about the album, the rapper said: "I wanted to give a nod to all of the genres of music I heard growing up that made me want to be a rapper. The good thing about being from London is that you hear so many different styles of music, and are exposed to so many different things. I wanted to make an album that felt nostalgic with elements of those big British sounds from different genres, whether that was garage, grime, hip-hop or R&B.”
He continued: “It’s also about empowering young people to think outside the box. I was just a young boy out of south London who loved music and wanted to see the world and contribute to something that I love and have a passion for. I honestly feel that there is no limit to where you can get in life. I really believe that. Youth is the time where you dream without any limitations or fear. And I wanted to share my story with the world through my music.”
