Jones recently talked to SOHH about why fans should go out and support the new LP.
"This is hustler's music. That's my first reason why you should go out and cop my new album. You can hear the hustle in this album and it's gonna be what you need to get you through your day, no matter what you got going on. That's the big reason right there." (Buy My Record)
The Diplomat member also told SOHH he was proud of the album's guest appearances.
"I'm excited about this album. I'm gonna keep it all the way live. I love all my albums, but this album I'm excited about just because of the fact of how the Sony [Pray IV Reign] album left off and the way the people portrayed it, they don't know the politics and the business when it comes to doing music and publishing records and all that. It's a hustler's state of mind. But, with all the support I've been getting on this new album, and the great music I've been making and the inspirations that's been coming by me, the sh*t is crazy. Shout-out to Wyclef, shout-out to Prodigy, shout-out to Lloyd Banks, Game, shout-out to Sean Garrett, shout-out to all the people that have been pulling my favor. I'm not even mad, I'm hyped!"
