Sitting down with Sermon’s Domain, he spoke on wanting to push himself on his sophomore album, leftover songs from My Grandma’s Basement, learning to play the piano, his favorite songs off Knock Madness, the song he’d choose to be on if he could’ve been apart of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP and more.
