In September, ScHoolboy Q discussed the theme of the album. "This album is about me taking care of my daughter and Crip history from 1969 to present," Q said at the time.
In June, ScHoolboy Q spoke with HipHopDX about fatherhood.
“She's been knowing [this] since she was born,” ScHoolboy Q said in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX at the time. "Every time I walk out the house, she asks, ‘Where you going, the studio?’ It’s the first thing she say. She don’t say, ‘You ‘bout to go with the homies? You ‘bout to get some weed?’ She say, ‘Where you ‘bout to go, the studio?’ I’m kind of proud of that.”
During the June HipHopDX interview, ScHoolboy Q also spoke about his relationship with his daughter.
“I haven’t even raised my daughter yet,” he said. "She’s four years old. That’s how long I’ve been grinding, trying to get to this spot.”
