He explains what inspired his latest music saying,
I think the biggest thing is sobriety. I started off last year, in January, I just wanted to stop drinking and doing things and other drugs. It was like a new year’s resolution, and then it turned out to be something I did for the whole year. I started to feel different during the first month, and I just wanted to see it out. What happened was, the way I created it and thought about music started to change. I started getting back to the essence of why I first started creating music, which was just for pure fun, and sort of like an emotional comfort and to just like reach that goal of doing what the people I look up to did.Channel Tres
