One of your more recent singles from your upcoming album is “Coming Home,” which is a tribute to those serving in our armed forces, can you tell us what inspired you to do this track?
Basically I was on the road for a long damn time after sitting at home for a while and getting used to that, and I just felt like, “Man, I wanna go home.” And it made me think of our soldiers all around the world and I just couldn’t even imagine how they feel. And you know they don’t really have a song or anything paying attention to them besides all the bad sh*t going on right now, so I just decided to make something upbeat and positive for them and that’s how “Coming Home” happened.
You’re about ready to release your fifth studio album soon titled Stoicville: The Phoenix, what’s the main message or story you’re looking to tell with your new album?
I guess the main message is, “Do what you want.” Don’t let anybody steer you in the wrong way; even if it’s the “right” way to go. I always tell my people that you can try to steer me in the way you want me to go but if I f*ck up my life, I’m glad that it’s on me. If I make the wrong decision, I’m glad it’s my decision. I don’t want to have somebody else make a decision for me and f*ck up my life and then wonder what if had I made my own decision. I tried to kill the “what if” and basically that’s the message – just kill the what if.
Can you give a little more detail on the concept and meaning behind The Phoenix?
The phoenix is all about rising from the ashes. I’m coming back as a whole other beast, like now I have a point to prove. Before I was just doing my thing, but now I go a point to prove and I feel like I’m going rise from the ashes as the phoenix.
