So we hear $elf Incrimination is dropping July 15th. Talk to us about the title.
I entitled it $elf incrimination because it is just that. I've done committed a lot crimes I'm not proud of it but it's part of my life. Things that ni**as had to do to get by and live life how we wanted to. I talk about it on this album. I felt like If they played this in court it would sound like I was telling on myself.
