As his manager and Ruff Ryder Darrin Dee Dean revealed, he’d been working on new music throughout the pandemic. “It’s sad that he’s not gonna be here,” Darrin said, “but the music… This album right here is special.”

Further noting it to be, “like you probably never heard no music like you heard on this one that we did right now. This is probably one of his great albums. One of the best. It’s a classic, for sure.” Darrin went on to express that DMX “was excited about it,” and that “he couldn’t wait to promote it and get out there with the music.”
