Talking to XXL, Chuck Taylor spilled the beans on his next album title. F.I.V.E. being an acronym for Fear Is Victory’s Evolution. It’s creative. I just hope, as he states, the concept behind it will make sure the music is good and not all over the place like R.E.D. He also says he’s not sure if he’ll re-sign after this last album is complete. In addition to his upcoming album, Jayceon is doing another mixtape soon.
“The meaning behind that is like—me as a rapper, you as a journalist, Kobe as a basketball player—you gotta be afraid to do something, or have those butterflies in your stomach,” he explained about the title. “We all get that feeling. Before you did your first interview, you probably was like, ‘Damn, I don’t want to ask the wrong questions. I want to do this right.’ Me, before I wrote my first rap, or the first time I was in the booth. Fear. But then fear is victory’s evolution. After a while, you become a dope journalist, I become a dope rapper, Kobe is Kobe. You achieve and you pass over that fear. Now it ain’t fear; it’s just victory. It’s victory of all.”
